Building A Better Rat Trap!

I may not have built a better rat trap, but I have built a party invitation like no other! My fellow Hen House members' son is having a different kind of birthday party this summer, he and his buddies are having a rat themed celebration...what can I say they are 14 year old boys. Boys are a mystery to me as it as {I have girls} and teen boys are from another planet :)
To make these super fun rat pack traps, I cut heavy cardboard... warning that totally killed a new rotary blade in my cutter! I stamped the words "rat pack" in red and sanded them down just a little.
I put a hole in each clothespin with my big bite cropadile and glued a screw shaped brad-thingy in each one. I used crystal effects to attach the clothespin...because these are for teen boys and I didn't want them to be destroyed in under 4 seconds LOL. The rat is printed on gray CS and was from a free clip art site. I coiled wire around a fat pen and stapled it to the invite....and wa-la A Better Rat Trap!
