Mother’s Day is around the corner, and we’ve got a wonderful project for you to make for Mom, Grandma, and just about everyone else you love.
We’ve teamed up with our friends at The Soap Dispensary for a soap making + packaging project.
Step 1. Come the shop + make your wrapping + card for your soap collection. We’ll give you a coupon for the Soap Dispensary where you can grab all your supplies to make soap at home. You’ll leave here with packaging for all your soap + some gift cards too.
Step 2. : Go to the Soap Dispensary and grab the supplies to make soap at home (it’s so easy! We’ve got the instructions for you here in this post!)
This is a great project to do with kids 5 yrs old and up. Make a series of soap bars (pictured below) all presented in pretty wrap + a matching card. Grandma is going to LOVE this…
Our kit includes everything you need wrap each bar of soap and make a card to match.
Included in the kit is a coupon for The Soap Dispensary where you can pick up your blocks of soap, and essential oils to make at home. You can follow the instructions here.
block of hand pour soap
essential oil in your favourite scent
dried flowers (optional)
soap mold or empty milk carton
Cut your soap block into smaller pieces and place in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and check them, then microwave for another 30 seconds. Once the soap is melted add a few drops of the oils into the bowl and pour into your milk carton. The soap sets pretty quickly. Make sure it has completely cooled before you slice it up. You can get anywhere from 5 to 7 bars of soap.
Once to soap is cut you can use your paper and twine to wrap up the bars. A perfect handmade gift.
Happy Mother’s Day!
