Hostess Gifts

Today we're celebrating Thanksgiving! My husband's grandmother and aunt have come down from KY to visit my FIL along with my SIL and her family from FL. I think it's the first time that my husband and his sister have ever spent a Thanksgiving with their grandma. The pies are baking and I'm catching up on some blogging.

These decorated soaps are the cutest little hostess gifts or even just a little holiday surprise in a bathroom basket. They are super simple to make and very easy to mass produce in a variety of colors. The secret? Tissue paper! ;)

Hi Patti!
Thanks! These are little soaps! I stamped on tissue paper, punched them out and glued onto the soaps with Tombow. Super simple to make!
Have a fab day!
