The waterproof labels are the perfect solution to decorate a bathroom or kitchen tin. (Be careful though, they are WATERproof but NOT OIL proof, so don't be getting them gunky with other oily, sticky bathroom products!) I stamped my border in Silver Encore Ink to match my tin on my waterproof label, I think these delicate "metal" lines adds such a an elegant, custom look! I used the "Botanical Dream" set again to match my bathroom, I love this sketchy sprig image, it can look like dried or fresh herbs, or a delicate bunch of flowers! One of my favorite herbal combos is Rosemary and Mint, relaxing and refreshing, so I stamped it in the corner in Mellow Moss, stamped off, and then stamped it again in black and colored in the leaves with my matching moss marker. I added "Dream" with Palette Noir (remember it doesn't matter what ink you use on these, it'll still be waterproof! amazing!!) Next I wanted to make the background match the tile that surrounds my tub, so I sponged over my image with River Rock, Mellow Moss, and Going Gray filling it out , trying to create both some light and dark areas, as well as letting some white show through, and going back in with my SU! Itty Bitty Background speckle stamp in Black and the Mellow Moss(you could also use an air gun), looks a lot like stone in the end and very simple to do! Last, trim, peel and stick!
Inside I added my soap rosemary mint soap and there was still room for clippers.
When you present your gift, a crimped cardstock wrap in Kraft or Confetti or other recycled handmade paper with some raffia would be a beautiful complement to the handmade soap. Think about other toiletries you could add: a nail file, some dried herbs, a bath sachet, tea bag etc. :)
EDITED TO ADD: you can order your tins here, only $1.50 each at Gina K Designs! :)
