Welcome! I'm Brandy, mother to 5 darling kiddos and a cute black lab named Toby. My husband is in the Coast Guard so we've lived all over the place, turning each house into a home. I love baking, sewing, making cute things with my kids, and sharing what I've learned with all of you!
I LOVE The Idea Room. LOVE LOVE LOVE her blog. I went on there today to look for her embossed candle tutorial, and came across this in the craft section! I’ve seen these before, but didn’t know how to make one. I thought it was a sticker or something on the front. I had everything I needed already on hand.
Laser Jet printer
Transparency (leftover from these)
Clear Soap Bottle
That’s it! Our laser jet printer has issues right now. It prints a long black line down the front of each page. Usually we use our ink jet printer, but for this project it worked great since the area being printed was only 3″x4″. If you don’t have a laser printer, you can go to Kinkos and they’ll print out your page on a transparency for usually under $1.
I added our names onto our bottle and love how it turned out. You can create your own template using a document program, or use the one that Amy has on her blog. Full instructions for making one of these can be found on her blog as well.
I think I will make one of these for each of the boy’s teachers this year to go with their Christmas gifts. The dollar store has little bottles of soap, so it’s a practical, inexpensive and personal gift.
