Two Peas in a Pod

My sister in law is pregnant! :) She is due in January so I guess I have babies on the mind.

This is a melt & pour tutorial…and I’m sitting here thinking of what other melt & pour tutorials my blog has to offer.  Searching…searching…

NONE!  I love melt & pour.  I started my soapmaking journey with melt & pour.  I have no melt & pour tutorials on my blog!  That is just is so odd to me.  So here it is…the first one!

Two Peas in a Pod

This is a super easy and quick tutorial…perfect for a last minute shower gift or hostess gift.

You will need 16 oz clear melt & pour soap base, 3 oz white melt & pour soap base, .5 oz fragrance oil, green mica and two wash clothes.  You will also need my new favorite mold…the 4 Sphere Mold from Bramble Berry.

Chop up all of the melt & pour soap base and melt it in the microwave using 30 second bursts.

Add your green colorant and fragrance.

Pour into the sphere mold and let harden.

Take a wersh-rag (as my Granny Dot says) and fold in the sides as shown.

And place two peas on it.

Pinch up the sides like a taco and tie with ribbon or twine.

And there you have it!  Adorable peas in a pod soap!

Happy Soaping and have a great weekend!

    These are about cute! I also chuckled at you Granny Dot’s manner of speaking. According to my Grandma Lucinda, you “rench” out that washcloth with lots of water when you’re done.

    According to Grand Mac that is a ‘warsh cloth’ and to squeeze the water out you ‘wrang it’. Very cute and now I have to learn melt and pour. I’ve only done CP.

      I don’t think I would do more than how it is in the wash cloth. I guess you could put it in a plastic bag or something? Not sure…
