Lisa over at Tarnished and Tattered came up with a challenge.
We were challenged to take the packaging from a bar of "One" natural soap and make something with it.
The bar I purchased was the one on the far right, the Extra Virgin Pure Olive Oil soap. It has the most delicious scent. I could just hold it under my nose all day it's so yummy.
**For a side note I have to tell you that this soap is certainly not cheap. I had a hard time paying as much as I did for it because I AM cheap, LOL. I'm not the type of person who pays much attention to the products I use, I am the type of person who buys the 99cent bottle of Suave shampoo (gasp!) and the makeup that is on sale if I buy makeup at all because I rarely wear it. So dishing out $6 for one bar of soap was a pretty big stretch for me, but somehow because it was for an art challenge that was alright, LOL. But now I'm thinking that I made a mistake buying that bar because it is the most heavenly product I have ever used and now I'm going to want to buy more! This soap is so smooth you won't believe it. It makes your hands feel so soft after washing and like I said the scent is WONDERFUL!
Well enough about the soap, let's get on to the soap box!
This is my soap box creation. I used an old lovey post card as the picture with some vintage hand dyed lace and some Distress Stickles all over the outside of the box. I also used one of my hymnal titles and some antique sheet music.
Inside is a pocket for holding that special piece of jewelry and a little antique button knob.
I had so much fun with this, I wish it was possible to buy these little recycled boxes just for decorating.
Now I'm off to see what everyone else made!
Hope you have a great day!
