After Christmas sales of bath and beauty sets-in-a-bag-or-basket are plentiful!
In stores like Walgreens, CVS,Wal-Mart, Eckerds, they line the shelves.
The prices are excellent at 50% off!
But, the packaging is so generic and contrived.
Each gift looks like every other package in the Health and Beauty Aisle.
But what if you took another look
at these pre-packaged goods
and added this:
(Inspiration from BHG)
and got this?
What if you made a personal gift for a friend's birthday?
A friend who just got a new garden tub?
That's just what I did!
I gathered supplies:
- Spa Set-in-a-bag
- A bar of soap
- An empty paint can from Lowe's
- A paint can opener from Lowe's
- A few paint samples from Lowe's
- Scrapbook paper
- Vellum paper
- Double-sided tape
- Hole puncher
- 3' Wide Ribbon
Printed labels on the Vellum paper.
Unwrapped the loofah, scrubber, pumice and soap.
Wrapped scrapbook paper and labels around each,
taped them closed.
Layered them in the can with a few other treats.
You could add candles, a wine glass, a face mask,
chocolate, lotion, oils, anything that will fit!
Put the lid on and tap gently with the hammer to seal.
Punch holes in the paint samples you'll use,
they will be the gift tag(s).
Wrap the ribbon around the can.
Attach paint can opener to ribbon.
