Awesomeness!  This week, Crafts ‘n Things Weekly is featuring my Magnetic Mousetrap Clips!  Just in time for back to school!  These fun refrigerator clips are perfect for hanging up school work, keys or important notes.  And they are fun to make!

 I designed a fresh new look for my mousetraps especially for Crafts n Things Magazine, so be sure to check out their tutorial page.  You can create these brightly colored refrigerator clips for just pennies.  (Well actually a dollar, since I got the traps at the Dollar Store).

Here is a look at the original mousetraps.  This tutorial includes how to create a cool 3D effect with paper.

    Re. the Magnetic Mousetrap Clips, what type of magnet did you use? I’m thinking it needs to be very strong to keep up the mousetrap plus anything attached to it. We use regular stainless steel magnetic clips on our fridge, especially to hold papers from our kids. Sometimes there are so many papers clipped to a magnet that it won’t stay in place on the fridge.

    Thanks for your answer :)!

      Hi Maxine!

      I used the round disc magnets that I found at the craft store. They are about 1.5 inches in diameter and very strong. I even have one holding a spare keychain. You can always glue a couple of them to the back for extra magnetic strength. Hope that helps!
