Soap Leaves- a fun and easy project



 

 
You will need:
300gr Clear M&P Base
Glitter powder
Fragrance
Skeleton leaves
Microwave Jug
Tweezers
Rubbing Alcohol to spray bubbles away
String and pegs
Soap leaves
Soap Leaves1
Soap Leaves2
 
Method:
  1. Melt your soap base in the microwave in 20 second bursts. When melted add your fragrance and stir gently and spritz the rubbing alcohol to remove any bubbles.
  2. Take your string and make a "washing line" to hang the soap leaves on to dry.
  3. Take a skeleton leaf in the tweezers and dip them one by one into the soap base. One dip is all that is required. Sprinkle with glitter. The soap will dry enough as you take it out and shake it. Hang it on to line made with string and make the next one. The leaf will be set in about 30 minutes and ready for packaging.

To use: Using your soap leaves: carry the leaves around with you in your handbag. If you find yourself in a public place without soap just take out one leaf – wash your hands and throw away the skeleton leaf. These just make the most perfect gift.
