Altered Mouse Trap magnets using Scraps For Flamingo Scraps

First off I would like to wish all a very Happy 2013!!!
For this month for my Design Team Project at Flamingoscraps.com. I have decided to use mouse traps….yes, new unused mouse traps.

First off I tore off any of the hardware that I wanted to get rid of….just make sure you do not tare of the trap part.

Second I painted the whole thing with Acrylic paint. (Any kind of paint will do) Do not worry about getting it on the metal it makes it look more vintage.

Third I cut my paper to fit the background and modge podged it on. Then using your inks, distress away!! Then modge podge the front of the trap

Forth I decorated with lots of trinkets!! And had fun!!

I used nothing but scraps from my last 2 books Teresa Collins Vintage Finds and Now and Then lines and the Fab 4 project Prima Romance Novel. I really enjoyed making these. Distress stain and then started building with various things like Prima Vintage Trinkets. If you get a chance to try these do so….I am going to try the Rat Traps next. LOL I know it sounds funny…..But fun!!
