Gorgeous Soap Gifts

Just love altering these little bars of soap they make such unusual Christmas gifts … only give to someone who would really appreciate them.

The soaps I have used are Bonne Mere Milk Soap, link here, they are 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches. It doesn’t show in the pics but you can still see the writing beind the stamped image. Stamped images are from Estelle at The Stampsmith, stamps are Juliet and Ophelia my fave images.

Below shows pics of a bar of soap which I am in the middle of decorating.
First pic is how the soap looks at the back, second pic shows how it looks when you add the stamped image to the front. You stamp the image first onto white tissue paper then adhere to the soap.

This pic of Ophelia is how she looks when decorated and all boxed up. Made the box with an acetate aperture so the image shows through.

When opened I have nestled her onto some pure linen material just for an added piece of luxury.

I have two more to show you which are just soooo pretty.

    Crikey love this is stunning, you would pay a small fortune for something this gorgeous in some posh shop. I know it’s a job you hate but you have photographed this project brilliantly.
    Hope you and Andy have a good weekend.

  6. Oh my goodness Shirl this is completely inspirational. I wondered if you had used water decal paper but imagine, regular tissue. These are astonishing in their beauty.

    Breathtakingly beautiful box and soap! ๐Ÿ™‚
    great idea – thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for joining at LLCยดs December challenge ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas and wishing you a happy New Year! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hugs, Karita

  22. Shirl I had to come and congratulate you on your win at TSC!
    What a wonderful way to start the New Year.

  23. Great information. Lucky me I discovered your website by chance (stumbleupon).
    I’ve book marked it for later!

  24. Possibly the very best of these portable electronic book readers, and the first
    ereader, is the The amazon online marketplace Kindle. To begin with, you should know that you need a suitable theme for the gifts to be included in your basket.

    Combing through shopping aisles and clicking
    through online catalogues can be daunting.
