11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Silly Soaps Tutorial (Silly Bandz Soap) on: December 08, 2010 01:39:41 AM
Kids are obsessed with these Silly Bandz, so it was only obvious that I had to make some soaps with them. I was putting it off for a long time, but my friend finally pushed to to do it, telling me what are you waiting for? She was right, I was just too lazy.

Get your supplies ready

Fist we need one ounces of clear melt & pour soap base. Microwave, pour into the mold, then place your Silly Bandz inside the mold, spray with rubbing alcohol. I don't add fragrance here, because it could cloud up your soap. Let it set, or at least get hard enough before you pour the next layer.

Then when it's finally set, melt three ounces of white melt & pour base, then add fragrance when slightly cooled down. Spray rubbing alcohol on the clear, and then pour the white soap base on top of the clear base. Spray rubbing alcohol again to get rid of any excess bubbles.

Thanks everyone. I used Cold Process soap, make sure you really follow KB Shimmer's tutorial. Have your oils and lye at room temperature, it makes your soap trace very liquidy, and that's what really makes the swirling look good. I did add Dolce & Cabana for Men, because that's my favorite scent for my husband.

Don't be in a rush when swirling, patience is key. I think after trying her technique compared to others, KB Shimmer technique is the best by far.

I made this the other night when I was bored. I am very impressed with how it turned out.

Thanks again, you know you can look up packaging ideas for soap on flickr. There is so many examples for soap packaging that it gives you many ideas, and much needed inspiration for designing packaging. When you make your handmade soap sometimes your just to tired to even think of other ideas, we should always look for inspiration on the internet. That really helps me out. Good luck to you, I would like to see what you come up with.

Yes you can make your own sticks as long as you buy the right paper for it.

Yes I have been making cp soap for 5 years now I only recently discovered Crafster.org thanks to my sis. I dry out my soap naturally for 2 months, then they become hard as a rock, then I wrap them with wax paper, so is protects the soap, and the paper from being damaged. I set them aside, and they are ready to go. They can site a long time only because I wrapped them with wax paper, with out that the wrapping paper might tear at the corners, and get stained from the essential oils.

It's hard doing packaging, I still haven't 100% decided on this look yet. even though it is nice I still have a lot of other looks I want to play with.

Has anyone ever tried to make there own essential oils? Does anyone know anything about distilling? Or if you have any information that you can send my way I would appreciate it.
