Do you make neighbor gifts? Or teacher gifts? Every year I try to come up with something little, just so I can show people that I'm thinking about them. When it comes to gifts, I like to do something practical (I can blame my mom for that), something that they will actually use and not just sit in the closet. And I’m not really a baker, so little treats aren’t my thing. So I came up with these cute little snowman soaps. They are so easy to make, super cheap (cost me $.88 for the soap) and when they are done with them, they can refill it or throw it away, yay for no clutter! Plus everyone could use soap!
This is how I made them:
I bought some white soap and used goo gone to take off the label. I peeled off the label and then I used my fingernail and a paper towel to get the sticky part of the label off. You will want to take a baby wipe or something to take away the grease from the goo gone.
Using black and orange vinyl, I made the snowman face with my Cricut.
Then with some washi tape, I made a little scarf. You could totally use ribbon too, it would be super cute.
Then I made this fun tags for the soaps. Go here for the free printable.
I used a scalloped punch to punch the tag, but you could just cut the circle with scissors. Then I wrapped the tag around with ribbon.
And that’s it! A super easy, cheap and practical neighbor gift!
I’m thinking that I’m giving these to my sons’ teachers. I’m sure they could always use more soap
I also made some other kinds of soap- a reindeer, Santa and penguin. Check out the details here.
