Before & After: Grand Finale!

Well, I have been giving hints all week long about today's project! I am so exited about it! I am going to show you how to make a Mouse Trap Note Holder!!

I have been so excited because it is such a Out of the Ordinary project! It is just hilarious to me! And simple to do!

Isn't it cute! And such a conversation starter! What a great gift to cheer someone up! They will have to laugh at this!! The one pictured above is for a friend of mine, and then I will make one in the video using the Punch Art Mouse I made yesterday. Well, what do you expect? I couldn't make a Mouse Trap Note holder without a mouse on it!

The video actually uploaded to YouTube early yesterday. Sorry about that! It gave away my surprise!

Thanks for stopping by today, and leave me a comment about your opinion of today's project! Was it too much hype for a boring project, or were you "trapped" into creating your own? LOL


Supplies for video project:
