Hope everyone had a great time on National Scrapbooking Day!  I learned how to make an awesome little note clip from, get this - a mouse trap - to hang on the wall.  Lisa Gregory did a Ustream Video for Swirlydoos and it was so much fun!

My project went from this:

To this:

Mine is going to be for my dad for Father's Day.  He loves taking objects and making them into something else, so I think he will love this.  I've also included some buttons from Grandma's (his mother) button jar, just to make it a little bit more special!

I did the background using Beate's tutorial.  It gave such a cool look to the trap and it is just done with masking tape and ink!  The beautiful glass knob, corner pieces and pen knib, is by Tim Holtz, the two square metal pieces are by CTMH, and the rest are Grandma's buttons.  I used one of them to make a stick pin out of one of the discarded pieces of the mouse trap.

This was a fun little project that didn't take very long at all.  I encourage you all to give it a try, I know you will like it.

Have a great day!
