Altered Mouse Trap!!!

Hello everyone!
I am so excited to be sharing my latest altered item. I had seen an altered mouse trap on pinterest and wanted to make my own but my style :) here is the link to Suzy's blog  THANK YOU  for the great idea Suzy :)

this is the mouse trap that I used
and here is how it looks now with magnets on the back
a close up
Once again I made my own porcelain flowers and brushed perfect pearls to colour them. The butterfly was cut from grunge paper and I had used the shattered stain technique, love that look!

I am hoping to make 12 more of these clips  and use them to clip my tags of 2012 onto them.

Have a great weekend everyone!
Donna
ps I just remembered that there was another gal who had altered a mousetrap. I will have to see if I can find it again and post the link here.

  4. Very cute redo. Probably not going to be used for capturing a mouse, though, right? Awesome!
