I know it’s a bit early to be posting this....but sometimes when the inspiration strikes, I just have to go with it!
I was trying to think of a way to use the rest of the hot process soap I was going to have leftover from my polar bear soaps. I thought it would be fun to make some soap cookies to put into tins to give as little Christmas gifts to family, friends, teachers, etc. Hot process soap is great for using with cookie cutters; it sets up really quickly and cuts out so nicely. I poured the HP soap into a slab mold and was able to cut out these cookies after the HP soap had cooled for about 1 hour. You could also hand-form the cookies, as I did here:
I searched online and found these adorable little labels (I’ve included the links below) and printed them out on sheets of sticky label paper (I used Avery 8165). How perfect are the ‘We WASH you a Merry Christmas’ labels for soapmakers?!
These tins would also be really cute packaging for these bath cookies; the recipe for the bath cookies can be found here: Oil & Butter - Milk and Bath Cookies
I’ve included the links for the printable labels; however, please make sure you read each designer’s copyright disclaimer before you download their labels. They have generously provided the labels for free, but both designers state that these printables are for personal use only.
