These fun photo soaps are amazing as friend gifts. Prepare clear glycerin soap, essential oil or fragrance, soap molds or small cardboard boxes, photos on transparency paper or copy paper, scaled to fit your molds, packing tape if using transparencies, a microwave safe bowl, scissors. First print your photos. Cut out your photos so they are slightly smaller than your molds. If you are using transparencies, add packing tape to the inked side of those. This will help lock in the color. Melt your soap according to the package directions (most have a microwave option). Pour the soap into the mold, then add your photo. Read the next steps here.
