Mini Sugar Scrubs

February 3, 2014 No Comments

Last week, I was contacted by someone who had won a certificate for custom favors that I had donated to be auctioned off at a fundraiser.  I love to do custom design.  Her sister is getting married and they wanted me to design favors for the bridal shower.  I was given the theme – household and the colors: Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight.

Now, what do you make for a household themed shower?  I came up with four or five ideas and set to work executing them.  Just before we met, I received an email asking if some of the favors would be suitable for prizes or gifts.  I replied that I thought so.

Since the choices have been made, I thought it would be fun to share one of the “losers”.  All of the favors were things that could be used in or around the house and this was no exception.  This is a mini sugar scrub perfect for having by the sink in the powder room or the kitchen.

Mini Sugar Scrub

I found these cute little clip top bottles and filled them with a homemade lemon scented sugar scrub.  Then starting with a strip of Night of Navy paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack, I made a belly band and wrapped it with a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.  “For You” was inked in Night of Navy and stamped on Whisper White.  It was punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle punch and layered on Pear Pizzazz punched with the 1 3/8″ Circle punch.  The circles were attached to the belly band with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Next, I found tasting spoons at the local restaurant supply.  They were the perfect size to place along the side of the bottle and to be able to spoon a small amount of scrub into one’s hand.  The spoon needed a little dressing up so I tied a bit of the same Daffodil Delight ribbon, that I used above,  around the handle.

 

Scrunched Flower detail on Mini Sugar Scrub

The top was decorated with three cottage roses.  They’re super simple to make.  I punched three 7/8″ Scallop Circles for each flower.  Then using my bone folder, I softened the fibers in the paper and carefully separated each circle into two.  One great thing about Stampin’ Up! cardstock is that it is dyed all the way through.  When you separate the pieces you get a sueded side and a smooth side.  I like to alternate which side is facing up as I stack the flower together.  I think it makes the finished flowers look more interesting.  Using my Paper Piercing tool, I poked a hole through the center of each stack of circles and secured them together with a 1/8″ Mini Brad.  Then I just wadded and scrunched the circles into the middle and gently, barely pulled them apart and  voila, you have cottage roses.

You may want to keep some of these on hand.  I’m thinking they would be perfect as a thank you for a small favor, part of the art teacher’s gift during Teacher Appreciation, as part of a little girl’s manicure birthday party, a gift for a gardening friend.  I’m sure you can think of a number of other uses..  So, go to my website and get the supplies for these.
