Making The Heart Shaped Soaps
My oldest daughter is the soap making expert and has taught me everything she knows. We thought it would be fun to make mini heart shaped soaps to give to her friend’s and the students in my class for Valentine’s Day. So when we spotted some silicone heart shaped candy molds at Michael’s we knew we had hit the jackpot!
First, we got out our block of glycerin and cut it into small pieces. We melted the pieces in the microwave heating them in 25 second increments until they were completely melted. We used a stir stick to make sure the glycerin was fully melted.
Next, we poured the melted glycerin into the heart shaped molds and added in some fun red beads! We let the soaps sit for a couple of hours. Once they were firm we popped them out of the molds. They were so cute!
Packaging Up The Heart Shaped Soaps
I wanted to find a fun way to package up the soap so I created a printable that goes along with the soap theme! The printable says: Soap You Know You’re Awesome! Pretty cute huh? My husband helped me come up with it!
All you have to do is print out the printable Valentine’s, fold them in half and staple them over the top of the cellophane bag holding the soap. Adorable right?
Oh and don’t forget to sign the printable on the back so your friends know who made them!
And that’s it! Once you have them all packaged up they are ready to hand out. You can add one, two or three heart shaped soaps to each package depending on how many you want to make.
The perfect handmade gift for your favorite Valentine. Made with love! My daughter and I are both so excited to hand them out. There is something so special about handmade gifts!
