French Soap Label

Like so many of you, I love to see what The Graphics Fairy has on her site to inspire me to create. I saw this vintage French Soap Label and knew I could use it for something fun and pretty! I have always been a crafter and a creater for as long as I can remember! So to come up with something to create with this beautiful label, I just thought back to my childhood. Creating special soap was one of my favorite things to do and it was perfect for this French soap label.
I printed the label out on regular white paper so that it would fit on the bar of soap that I had. I then used tacky glue to secure it to the bar of soap. Then I applied the glue to the top and let it dry. I added glitter and a little bling to make it really pretty.
This particular bar of soap is for decorative purposed only. If you want to make these useable, just dip the top with the picture into some parafin wax. This makes a protective barrier so that you can actually use your pretty soap.
The things you can do is really up to your imagination. I have used actual pictures, stickers, etc. I have made these for party favors at weddings and parties. The possibilities are endless!
I am linking up with The Graphics Fairy Brag Monday!
I would love to see the pretty soaps you come up with!!

My mom has told me about soaps like this, as she used to make them with her church group. However, she never could remember how to make the soap usable after putting the picture on. Thanks for letting us know.
