Lathered in Love: Valentines Giveaway and DIY tutorial

February 9


Call me a dreamer or perhaps, a hopeless romantic but this lady adores nothing more, than a celebration of love. From everyday moments, to weddings, birthdays and even Valentines, my heart leaps at the opportunity of basking in that which makes this world go round! ‘Cause to love and be loved, is to feel the sun from both directions!

So, in honor of Cupid’s Arrow, I’m giving away hand packages Valentines to my lovely fans: delicate french milled guest soaps, adorned in KME embellishments.  As in everything we do, they’re certified pretty and crafted in love… just for you!

We’ve got a total of five fabulous freebies to give away. So, as they say in the city that never sleeps, Start spreading the news!

Feeling crafty yourself?

Here’s how you too, can create your own hand packaged Valentines.

  • Patterned craft paper or card stock
  • Twine or burlap string
  • Mini French Soaps
  • Decorative tags (I used these ones HERE, courtesy of Miss Cuty Pie)

After all, who doesn’t love a luxurious bar of soap, perfectly packaged just for them?!

Let’s get started, shall we…..

Step 1: Cut a thick strip of paper and roll your soap (the more you roll, the thicker + harder to maneuver it becomes)

Step 2: Cut your paper at the desired length and glue closed (I used decorative scissors to add character)

Step 3: On each side, push the two edges inward, like wrapping a present 

Step 4: smooth fold creases with finger and perfect cut edges is jagged


Step 5: Punch a whole through each side fold, using a single hole punch

Step 6: Tie each side closed with your twine or burlap string

Step 7: Select and cut out your favorite decorative tags 

Step 8: Tie the tags to one side, finishing with a bow

Step 9. Tie other side closed as desired. 

 

There you have it: an adorable girlfriends gift or little something for someone special. Personalize and play to craft the perfect Valentines this year.

Until next time, Happy Crafting, Lovelies!

    My boyfriend and I are going to spend a “no-media” night, where we’re gonna go on a date and just bask in each other’s love. Probably gonna visit the place of our first date, grab some coffee, and have a picnic dinner. :)

    My fiancé and I are moving into a condo in just over a week. We will be spending this weekend painting, scrubbing, more painting and more scrubbing!! By the time Valentine’s day rolls around I think all we will want to do is stay at home, cuddle on the couch, watch some movies and share popcorn… and chocolate :)
