Skull One Use Soap

Don't you love it when something comes out just how you imagined it. No hassles, no flubs, just happy happy crafting. That is how it has been today! So far anyway.One use soaps. So cool. And it makes soooo much sense too. Pretty little soaps, one sudsing and then they are gone! No icky bar making a mess in my soap dish. No worries about nasty little germs. I printed up these skulls from The Graphics Fairy on water soluble paper and cut them out leaving a small tab to hang on to. Then I dipped in clear scented soap about three times, letting harden in between dipping. Wax paper allows them to cool and not stick to the counter.
After you are done dipping the final time, trim off the tab and any excess soap around the edges and that's it.
It makes the thinnest sliver of soap perfect for a single washing!
I thought these would make great little gifts so I printed up these little bag toppers, again from the Graphics Fairy. The plastic bags are clear and about 3x4.
And just in case you don't know what these transparent little skulls are for, I put One Use Hand Soaps in a Gothic font on the back of the toppers. Didn't I tell you it was a great day! Diana

  14. How wonderful can you get!? I resisted the urge to buy soap-making supplies at Hobby Lobby the other day, and now I have a great project to try. Now I'm off to find a source for water-soluble paper. Thanks for the great idea. Skipping over from the Graphics Fairy.
