Vintage Mousetrap Memo/Key Holder

Remember this little Vintage Mousetrap I found?


I had a little project in mind when I bought it. So I took this tray that I already had...

 then I punched out a scallop circle from a vintage sheet music cover, and added a #3 stamp...

 punched a hole on each side of the tray with a hammer and nail...

 glued the mousetrap and circle punch onto the tray (I just used a glue stick for the circle punch and E6000 for the mousetrap) then bent the end of the piece of wire into a hook...

added some twine for a hanger (I originally tried wire but didn't like the look of it)

and here is what I ended up with...
