If you are anything like me, you will keep thinking of people you need to grab a little holiday gift for. There is always that co-worker or the mailman or the sweet lady at the hair salon I want to treat for their hard work. This is especially true for the kid’s teachers. There are so many, but you want to be sure to include them all. With this Layered Unicorn Soap Tutorial, you can make enough for everyone on that list!
Layered Unicorn Soap Tutorial
One thing I admired about my mom was her huge heart. When it came to the holidays, she didn’t want to leave anyone off her gift list. She either bought or made a gift or would add some cash to an envelope. This included the owner of our favorite bakery, the woman who delivered our mail and all of our teachers.
If you read our recent post, Layered Mermaid Soap Tutorial, you can see a similar way to make this soap. We wanted to make two different recipes that would be easy, cute and make great gifts for everyone on your list. But we wanted them to be unique as well. I think we found a perfect balance!
There is Still Time For Last Minute Gifts!
Because we still have a few weeks before Christmas, you can make several batches of these soaps Because the two recipes share common ingredients, you are saving even more money than you thought! That means you can make some for your self too!Now that is the holiday spirit!!
