Here are some of the bath bombs I've been making as christmas gifts:



I just realized I didn't actually take any pictures of the bombs themselves! WhoopS!! They're pink and cookies sized with hearts on them!  They smell of Christmas!  I used the bath bomb instructables found here: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Bath-Bombs/  

If you were curious, the smell of Christmas is cinnamon, clove and orange.  lol  Additionally, I only loosely followed the instructions.  I added grated cocoa butter to my bombs for extra moisturizing power!


I decorated old coffee cans with scrapbooking paper and made the bows for the top.  They're such great gifts.  I'll be sad to give them all away!

P.S. I'll be making a second batch, so I'll remember to take pics of those!

Great packaging! Coffee cans and formula cans are great crafty packaging fodder. Love 'em! Smiley

I really love the coffee cans because my bath bombs are actually quite oily, I stored some in a paper bag once... it looked like I had had mc donalds in it!!!

Here's another canister and the bombs themselves!!!




The purple ones are lavender, and the peach ones are citrus (sweet orange and lemon).  I think the citrus ones were a little too moist, becasue when I put them on the cookie racks, they mooshed (technical term) through and now look like the back is a butt. Tongue  Next time I think they'll go on wax paper!

All three scents:



Each tin has about 4 of each kind!

Thanks for looking and the kind feedback!

What a sweet mold! Yeah, sounds like they might be pretty moist. I leave mine in the mold for about 24 hours, I think, and then knock them onto parchment paper to dry out for another 18 hours.

I'll bet everyone who received loved them! I may have to steal borrow this gorgeous idea for our end-of-year gift to our milk delivery gal. Grin

Very cute! Looks like a great mold.

lol @ "now look like the back is a butt."  I like to put them on waxed paper or even just a piece of computer paper. I tried to use racks the other day when I made solid sugar scrubs and the eo ate the finish off of my racks! I'm glad I was using old ones!

For anyone who's interested in making these, I made the bow using this tute:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=247280.msg2738386#msg2738386

But I made them with scrapbooking paper instead of magazine pages.  I poked a hole in the top of the lid and fastened the bow to the lid with the brad. It worked great!
