Designer Christmas Soaps Using JustRite

Oh gosh, I know you are going to think this bizarre, but I’ve had this on my idea list for almost a year and I’m tickled that I could finally put it to the test.  What I’m showing today are custom soaps that I’ve stamped on with my JustRite Stamps – in a sense.  In my stash I had the neatest product that I finally was able to test out.  The product is Graphix Rub-onz and what it allows you to do is to make a rub-on of things you stamp (or print) so that you you can actually apply the rub on to the surface of your choice.  

I made my own soaps because I wanted the round and square shapes to match with the newly released 2" Square Decorative Frames and Decorative 2" Round Wide Borders from JustRite.   Then I sat down and stamped out four round borders and four square borders and used images from JustRite’s A Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers to fill the centers.  For each border I used a Tombow marker and huffed before stamping.  For each center I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink then colored with Copic Markers.   To wrap them up, I used a tall cellophane bag (about 10" tall) and cut the end off.  I twisted both ends, like on a piece of hard candy and tied ribbons on each end.  That wrapping still lets you see the face of the soap and makes a really balanced presentation with the ribbon on both ends.

Now really these soaps are more for decoration than anything but they can be used.  Once wet, the decal that is left from the rub on will peel off.   Here is the packaging for the rub-ons.  The instructions on the package are excellent and very easy to navigate.  


ETA:  This type of soap was simple to make.  The stock that you purchase at Michaels is premade and you only need to add fragrance if you want.  It get heated in the microwave for about a minute then poured into a mold. :-)  This was an activity we did every year when our kids were younger – it’s tons of fun.  My bars were ready to go in an hour.

Project Recipe:
Stamps:  JustRite 2" Square Decorative Frames, Decorative JustRite 2" Round Wide Borders, JustRite A Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers

Accessories: LIfe of the Party Soap Molds (Michaels), LIfe of the Party Shea Butter Soap (Michaels), Grafix Rub-onz (Hobby Lobby),  Tombow Markers, Copic Markers, Cellophane Bags, Ribbon, Wire Mesh Basket.

      It’s very easy to make soap. I purchase premade stock from Michaels. You throw it in the microwave for about a minute then pour it into your mold. Mine bars were ready in about an hours.

    Wonderful idea to make the soap look like candy! I make my own soap, and everyone hints around this time of year for more soap. I’m going to use your idea with the neighbors this year. Really cute. Happy Holidays!
