Thursday night I put on my newest in my collection of holiday movies and sat down to get soap ready for my Friday afternoon lunch with the ladies.
I had cut most of my holiday bars into halves so I could stuff a sampling in those cute little boxes I made last week.
I discovered though that they would all still need some trimming to get into the box.
I had a nice pile of scraps left when I was done.
Three fit nicely. It was good to have that work out.
Now that the soap was in the box I had to figure out how to label it. Hmmm...
That works. It's not terribly classy but it'll do.
I had quite a bunch when I was done. We were expecting twelve for lunch.
When I was done I played with stamping up some plain white boxes. I saw someone do this on You Tube. Cute, right?
The next morning I labeled some lotion bars for everybody. My new snowflake mold fit perfectly in the tins.
I had also made several pans of fizzies over the past few days and I wrapped up the last of them that morning too. These were peppermint. I didn't bring too many because I had brought some to our last lunch and I wasn't sure if anyone really liked them. Apparently they did. In fact, I came back with nothing. They took it all and even some soap leftover from the summer I had brought. I didn't make nearly enough holiday soap. I've got precious little left and lots of gifting still to do. I'll have to remember that for next year.
Having said that, I did keep a bit aside for a holiday giveaway. You know the routine. If you want to enter message me on Raverly (I'm Araignee) and I'll see what surprises I can come up. Tell me what winter holiday you celebrate and if you have any allergies. Happy holidays!
