Snowflake Soap Cover and Instructions

Here's a fun little inexpensive gift you can make in a short time. I got the bars of soap at Michael's in their dollar spot. There's red and green soaps too. I liked the blue because it smelled nicer and I just LOVE snowflakes!!!!

To make this I took a piece of card stock measuring 10-13/16" long and 3-9/16" wide. Score at 5/8", 1-3/16", 4", 4-5/8", 7-7/16", 8-1/16".

After scoring I rolled the snowflakes on using the the jumbo "Snowflake" wheel from Stampin' Up! I took the 1-1/4" punch and lined it up and punched out a square in the middle of one of the larger areas. I turned it over and punched the same area again. This made the square longer (I believe they call that a rectangle, don't they??? LOL). I wanted the snowflake on the soap to show up.

I used the snowman from the "Very Merry" set. I punched it out using the 1-3/8" punch and sponged the edges with Bashful Blue. I also colored the snowman in using a Bashful Blue marker. I then used the new Scalloped punch from Stampin' Up! Again in the Bashful Blue card stock. I glued them together and set them aside.

I then assembled the "box." The first two scores you made are the ones that wrap around the side and bottom of the soap. Wrap it around and only glue the side and close the "cover." Hold the area in place for a few minutes so the glue sets up.

Then I tied on a piece of Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon and then glued the snowman in place.

It's such a quick and cute gift!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by!

I am going to have to go get some of these and see how it is made. We love to craft our own soap, and I like the look of the snowflake cut-out on top. You amaze me at the things you do, so wonderful!
