Since I MUST type......I'll tell ya what I've been up to today with the good ol' MP. I FINALLY got a small 3" diameter sphere candle mold yesterday. I've been wanting to do this for quite awhile. Put a cheap nylon poof in there, scent the soap according to color of the poof, add a little sparkle and WA LA! Soap on a rope (with a poof!). I've only gotten the lavender one done, but it turned out pretty cool. The 'rose' is chillin now. I want to make at least 4 of them for my craft show tomorrow.

Problems:
1) don't know how I'm going to package them yet........any ideas???
2) They weigh over 9oz. each so figuring out from what I charge for my other soaps per ounce they need to be priced at about $7.50ea. They don't LOOK all that big, but it's about the same weight as 3 of my loaf slices. Think they'll sell??

I really think the idea is cool, I had made another one with a larger sphere mold awhile back, but couldn't see trying to sell it for $12. So it's in my shower. I tried it the other day..........I'm ashamed to admit.....I hated it.....it was drying to my skin though it DID smell good. I am sooooo spoiled with the homemade (CP) soaps I've been making, I don't even like MP soap anymore.........
Lucky for me there are people out there who love it!

I've seen a lot of people shrink wrap those or putting them in cellophane and tied with something.

Since I've received no reply.....I'm gonna post some pics. Here are my "Poof Soap on a Rope" (REALLY need a better/good name for them, any ideas?)

Before packaging:


After packaging: not a very clear pic though, sorry. I did discover I had some shrink wrap bags that came with the impulse sealer that worked pretty well.
