"Fresh" Refrigerator Magnets



Authentique Paper and Epiphany Crafts are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Epiphany Crafts products!

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Epiphany Crafts blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today! 


********** 
I have some home decor to share today! I'm really excited about this project.... it's odd, yes, but I think it turned out really neat!

Do you see it? If you guessed mouse traps, you're right! Now I can't take full credit for this idea, I saw it on pinterest a while back and I HAD to try it!
Don't worry! The mouse traps were NEW in a package when I started! There was something a little odd about hanging mouse traps on my refrigerator, but when I painted them and jazzed them up with some "Fresh" designs, they look really unique! 


I used elements stickers for the little letters at the top. There is one for "Keys," one for "Notes," and one for "Bills." I cut the little paper bows with my Silhouette Cameo and added the perfect dimensional touch to the center, an embellishment made with my Epiphany Crafts shape tool! 

This is a fun & quick project to make! All you need are some mouse traps (which I found at my local $ store for cheap), some paint, and some pretty paper and embellishments! Quick & easy way to keep organized too!
