3D Wednesday

Hello, and welcome to another 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time. Today's assignment was to alter something. I've been wanting to try this idea for some time and was excited to finally found these mousetraps at the dollar store. They must have thought I was loony getting excited over these, but I'd been looking for weeks and finally asked. They keep them behind the register.......what?! Doesn't make sense to me, but at least I know now that they have them, even if they are too precious a commodity to keep out in the aisle. LOL! 

These are lots of fun to make from start to finish. Take them apart and keep only the clip and springs. Cover or paint, embellish if you want to, and voila! Super cute fridge magnets. 

Papers are Simple Stories, 25 Days. 

 The papers I used for the Halloween clip are My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Halloween.

For the sentiment on my Christmas version I used My Creative Time All Around Christmas stamp set. Holy is a Quickutz die, label is Spellbinders.

The Halloween version is my favorite of the two. I used My Creative Time Fly Away With Me banner dies, Mixed Holiday Sentiments stamp set, and the black cat from Treats for My Sweet stamps.
