That's so pretty! And the possibilities for images are endless.  I wonder about the danger of papercuts though!  Wink  But I suppose that wet, soapy, paper doesn't have much of a chance of cutting you....

Thanks for sharing this idea!

I did this once with acetate and it is amazing! ..but my husband did indeed get cut pretty bad while showering! (acetate is a little thicker than vellum though, and that's what I used  Huh) so no more pretty soaps like these for us!  thought i'd chime in to let you know..jeez I hate being a partypooper tho! Your design is very pretty btw!

Is your theme the tree of life? I think from the picture that that is what you are using ~ it's what we used for my sister's wedding.  Since she had an "Irish Handfasting" theme, we used flags made out of unbleached muslin and painted the tree on them (simple stencil we made out of card stock) and they looked great flying from all the trees and such in the park where she got married.

As for the soaps, I think I will try making some and just add them to my 'decorative only' pile.  Smiley

I love the way yours came out.

Actually, it's supposed to be an orange tree - for the town we grew up and live in - and also orange blossoms are a traditonal wedding flower.

I was going to try acetate but I think I will pass and try the shrink plastic.

Thanks for the compliments!

there are three kinds of aggies

those of us who cannot
