Ok. I know what you're thinking...
YES...well actually these below in the pics are a RAT trap.
I liked the rat traps because they are bigger.
So lets get started.
Buy a NEW mouse or rat trap
get your paints, papers, stickers, glue guns, craft accessories ready
First there are a couple of metal pieces that you will have to "detach" from the trap.
You only want to be left with the square spring piece. That is the part that will hold your MEMO!!
Then paint your trap your color of choice
Then grab some stickers/paper, etc and start to decorate.
I used stickers and put them on before the paint dried.
And it's okay to put things hanging off the sides
Here's the 2nd one at its starting point
Then using my glue gun I started adding other elements
And here they both are finished!
I love how they turned out and these would make great gifts.
And if you need just a little something extra as a gift you could use the mousetraps since they are smaller.
Just add a picture hanger on the back and hang on a wall.
So adorable and easy!
