Last minute project ideas!

Only 2 more days to go until Christmas, so if you don't have your presents made already, it might be too late. Or is it?

If you're looking for some last minute, easy to make, no fail presents, here are a few ideas for you...

Lotion bars: Give yourself an hour to weigh, melt, and mould, then pop them into the freezer to set quickly.

Whipped butters: These are always welcome under the tree, and your giftee will thank you when they feel the lovely meltiness on his or her skin.

Solid scrub bars for the body (click there for the original recipe, click here for modifications and lists of other recipes) or for the feet: Again, weigh, melt, mould, freeze. If you don't have all the ingredients, you can make something with a butter, an oil, some e-wax, some cetyl, your scrubby bits, and leave out all the fancy stuff.

And package it all in something really cute! Click here for a list of all the places I've found great templates for packaging (scroll down a bit). And don't forget the adorable labels!

Sorry for the short post, but it's chaos around here right now and I haven't had time to do any serious researching or experimenting for a few weeks!
