From the PTI Web Site and Nicole Heady...

"Heartfelt & Homemade Holiday Challenge
The holidays are upon us and will be here before you know it!
Why don't we use this month's Blog Hop as a way to help each other plan for the upcoming holidays?
We want to see you best holiday inspired projects.
This includes gift ideas and holiday cards. Gift packaging, wraps & tags.
Home decor and tree decorations. Recipes & traditions. We wanna see it all!
I hope many of you will participate as we take the opportunity to learn from each other and make this one of the most heartfelt & homemade holidays yet for all of our family & friends!"

I have shown you in past blog posts some Christmas Crafts I have been working on to see how they perform you can find directions to the making of these products in the following posts here on my blog...

Lip Gloss

Body Glitter
Do not store the body glitter in the metal containers they will rust!

Embedded Soap Crafting
In my blog bar on the right you will also find a link to more soap crafting techniques that I did not use on this project. Did you know you can stamp on Soap?

Now here is how you can make the other goodies I have placed in my Bath and Body gift set...

Shower Gel
Fill container with "Life of the Party" Shower Gel Refill
Drop in 20 drops of Soap Crafting Scent

Body Lotion
Fill Container with "Life of the Party" Shea Butter Lotion Refill
Drop in 20 drops of Soap Crafting Scent
You can also drop in color, I did not use color in my project. (You would drop and mix the color 'til you get your desired result).
