What won't a crafter alter? On the CMB, I hosted another round of the Short and Sweet swap. This month it was to alter a mouse trap. My goodness, all the creations that were created were absolutely amazing.
My partner loves Paris and wanted a a holder for "honey do" lists on the fridge. I made the attached holder using G45 Curtain Call paper. I used a Tim Holtz die for the base using black med-wt chipboard. Layered with G45 polka dot paper in the black and tan. I used Spanish Copper Rub-N-Buff and created streaks. I added layers with a strip of the stamps from the paper collection, a doily cut from coordinating paper from the collection as well, and black tulle. I spritzed the whole thing down with Lindy's Stamp Gang MoonShadow mist. I then altered the trap by painting it black and spritzing it with the MoonShadow mist as well. I added distressed papers from that collection, along with altered flowers, and a resin flourish. Before adhering the trap, I punched a whole using the Crop-O-Dile and added an eylet so that the garment pin could go through the whole. I adhered the trap to the base, put on the charm, and added 5 magnets to the back.
