Merry, Bright and Clean?
Merry and bright embeded soap
This time of year I really like to craft with the girls, we have fun times getting items ready for the holidays. Today I am going to show you an easy no fail, fast, clean project to do with your kids.
Can't go wrong with soap crafting if the kids spill it you just clean it up, LOL!
Stamp, color and layer your image as you normally do, no special inks or papers are needed. Now take your project and wrap it in packing tape making sure to press firmly. Cut out your image leaving 1/8" tape seal all the way around your layered piece.
Here comes the new part and you will need some clear and white glycerin, "melt and pour" soap, and a soap mold. Cut off a few squares of clear and melt in your microwave per direction, usually less than 30 seconds. Pour the melted soap 1/2 way up your mold and let this harden, lay your image in face down and pour in your white soap to fill the mold. Let this layer harden and then remove your soap from the mold, your project is complete.
Fast, fun, easy, cute and clean.
