More Snow?

For the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge this week, I posted a tag with a snowflake and promised to show you my next project, which the tag would be attached to.

A few days after Christmas I ventured into Michaels to check out their post-holiday sales.  I found a candy mold and decided to use it for another purpose.  You may remember that this past fall I began making soap, first the pumpkin and then the peppermint.  Well, I have become addicted!  Snow, no matter how I feel about it, seems appropriate for January.  So, wa la- snow soap!

Note to Self: Clear objects do not photograph well!  
I followed the same procedure that I followed for the last two soap projects, but this time I used clear soap and GLITTER!  That's right!  They make glitter for soap!  I sprinkled a little glitter into the soap after I melted in the microwave and then a little bit more into the mold before I poured the soap in. I wanted to add a little vanilla fragrance, but it added color, and I wanted the soap to be clear so I could see the glitter (even if you cannot see it in the picture!)

It seemed perfect after I started working on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge, Snow, that I could make a cute little tag and package some of these little soaps as a "Just Because" gift for a friend.

These little projects are so easy, inexpensive and make great little 'thinking of you" gifts for teachers, neighbors, etc.  I'll be keeping it in mind for the holidays this year!

Thanks for stopping by today!
