Neighbor Gifts

I loved this idea when I saw it last year. It's personalized hand soap! The message actually goes inside the bottle. I can't remember exactly where I saw it. Anyway, they have been the best neighbors/best bud gifts ever. Teachers love them for their classroom too. So, want to know how to make 'em?

Here goes...
Step 1: Find a cheap clear soap. Walmart has them for 98 cents.

Step 2: Remove the label. These ones have a label that is actually removable on the front. The back one is another story...it comes off but leaves the sticky stuff, not cute!

Step 3: Use this to get the sticky off. I just used a ton of paper towels so I could just throw them away. Be sure to do it outside it is so smelly!

Step 4: Get on your computer and print out onto paper whatever you want to put inside. I made a few practice ones and checked to see if they would fit by holding them next to the bottle. Then we purchased some transparencies from a print center and had them copied onto the transparency. I tried printing them on my home printer but it does not work. It smears. You need to have it photo copied. After you have them printed cut them into little squares and roll them into the soap like a message in a bottle. They pop right opened and you can use the pump to push it to the front. EASY!




Step 5: On my computer I made a little saying. It said,"Hope your holiday season "BUBBLES" over with Joy!" Then I got some extra Christmas cards that I didn't use this year and cut them by hand into a tag shape. I inked the edges with my green ink pad, slapped the saying on the back, punched a hole, added a couple of cute ribbons, tied it to the bottle and DONE!



Aren't they SUITE?
