I'm so happy i could jump for joy! I have a huge block of glycerin soap left over from Sister's science project ("The Cell and It's Friends") that I have been itching to use. What a clever idea!

I take one hour long showers everyday

Just imagine how long I will be lying in the bathtub with those rose petals around me! *happy*

Thanks for sharing this great idea!

someone was asking if it would be awkward to use the tiny petal soaps, but i remember seeing these single use sheets of soap at the store (quite similar to these petals) selling for way too much money.. i think it's convenient and fun, and that way you don't have to rub your hands all over whatever grime someone else left on the soap!

oh yeah, someone else was asking if melting down dove soap will work, and i'm pretty sure that it won't.. i've tried melting down opaque soaps in a double boiler and it went absolutely nowhere...pretty disappointing. you could always cut up different soaps into chunks and throw it in a glycerin soap to add a kaleidoscope feel, but that's getting off topic..

I wonder if this will work with candles as well?  

You know, use the same technique, and arrange the petals the same way, kind of creating a rose....   you could even camoflauge a tea light within the petals, so you wouldn't have to worry about trying to fix a wick on in there...

I think I'm going to have to try it, by golly!

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

I liked this idea so much that I went out and bought all the stuff today!  I just got a brick of glycerin soap, microwaved it in a mug, added rose scent and red food coloring, and spooned it onto aluminum foil.  It was really easy!  I gave 'em to my mom and she thought it was so clever!  I'll have to make more for Valentines Day.  :}

Well I did this project today and realized I bought white soap instead of clear so I made them in purple, teal, pink, orange, blue but they look like paint splotches not pettles. I like them there interesting but I want petals not paint splotches so do you have any advice of what spoon to use so they don't run and make big paint stains. When I went on redenvelope today there's look exactly like petals the shape and everything I like your technique but I need more help and practice any advice?
