A Bit of Bubbly~ Craft 1

This darling bar of soap is the perfect size to slip into a stocking or small gift bag. The price to create it is even sweeter.


You will need a box of soaps that have sliding cardboard sleeves that surround each bar of soap. (I found a 3 pack for $2.99 at Marshalls.)


Cut a strip of sheet music (or scrap booking paper) to fit the cardboard sleeve and mod podge it right onto the surface.


Next, dab a bit of glue on each end of your sheet music "box" and add a layer of glitter.



Then sort through your scraps of ribbon, tinsel and holiday picks.



Add a pleasing combination of embellishments to the box in your recipients favorite color palette.


Go make a beautiful mess and be blessed.

Very cute. I am so excited about your daily craft tutorials. I have kind of lost my crafting mojo, I can't wait to get inspired!

I always buy scented boxed soaps like this- now I'll be decorating them like you did. They'll be so cute I plan on adding them to the package as part of the gift wrap. Thanks for the idea, Laura.
