This is one of my favorite gifts that I made a few years back for my neighbors. It smells and looks good!
I made these before I started blogging, so I only have a photo of the final product, but I got the idea from Martha Stewart. You can find the directions here.
If you try this, a couple of tips for you: Make sure to score the soap really well, so the layers stick. And make extra because when you slice the bars, there will be a few layers that come apart.
I packaged the soaps with peppermint Hershey kisses. (They are only available around Christmas time. If you love minty chocolate--you will LOVE these! They even have a bit of a candy cane crunch to them!) I found the felt baskets in Target's Dollar Spot bins.
If you do try these out as gifts, I'm making the tags free for you to download. I've left a small space at the bottom to sign your name. One page gives you 2" tags; the other 2.5" tags. Enjoy!
