Re-Styled Scented Soaps with the Fab Miss B

I found some fancy scented soaps (one of my weaknesses in life) on super sale at Pier 1, but the packaging left a lot to be desired. I decided to give them a boutique style make-over.

If you'd like to join in the DIY fun, you'll need some fancy pants soaps (easy to find at Marshall's or World Market), some pretty coordinating papers, (mine are by Martha from vile Michaels. Despite my protestations, I can never seem to ditch that scoundrel. He treats me terribly and I always come back for more.) Scissors, and trusty scotch tape.

If your soaps aren't wrapped in plastic, you may want to wrap them in tissue to prevent markings on the decorative paper.

You'll also need coordinating ribbons, that good old Sharpie and some pretty labels. Copy the names of the fragrances onto the pretty labels in your best handwriting, and don't be afraid to make them sound fancier if need be. Mine were already in Italian (I think?).

Now don't those look prettier? Just wrap them like ordinary presents, making sure to fold the corners neatly and secure the ribbon with the sticky label. Voila- boutique style soaps for $1.15 each. More proof that fab and thrifty aren't mutually exclusive. Look for at least a few of these in my next Giddy Giveaway!

Those are super cute -- maybe cute isn't the right word. Hmm, maybe super elegant is better!?! These would be great for a guest bathroom-in a little basket! Or use a teacher gifts. Or neighbor gifts! WOW! the endless possibilities
