For my project, I decided to work on a Favor Box for a baby shower.  These are for the shower for my first grandchild, to be more specific.  For the many of you who aren’t aware, in addition to papercrafting as a hobby, I am a professional soapmaker.  I typically work with cold-process, but for these favors, I was going to turn to glycerin, because of it’s gentleness, ease to color and ease of fragrance.  (All of my soaps contain only natural, organic ingredients and are fragranced with essential oils, not synthetic fragrance oils).  I have silicone muffin cups in a circle shape. That hold 4 oz. of glycerin soap.  
I made the soap, poured, and when set to a thick gel, I inserted the rubber ducks.  The soap is scented with Lavender Essential Oil and colored with natural oxides.  The rubber duck in the soap makes the soap float, so while mom is giving baby a bath (or simply enjoying one of her own), there will be no more floundering for sunken soap. 
I also made a Favor box for the soap to go into.  This box was made from a file purchased from  The box opening measures 4”x4”x4” assembled. I used thick cardstock to make the box as sturdy as possible.  I used two yellow cutouts of the ducks on the top and a pull tab for the top of the box.  I added shredded package filler and the soap, and it is perfect!  I can’t wait to make the rest! 
There is going to be an overall grand prize sponsored by Lisa from Scrapping with Lisa Designs and she will be the first stop in the lineup.  In order to qualify for the grand prize, you must leave a comment on every stop in the hop. You also must become a follower of my blog, my Design Team blog at all blogs in this hop.  The grand prize for the blog hop is $20 in free files over at 
Your next stop is (place next person's link).
Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for another great project.

Until next time…Happy Crafting!~
