    Step 1

    Gather your supplies

    Step 2

    Use your knife to cut the soap into cubes. Take as many as you think will fill the mold, and dump them into your measuring cup.

    Step 3

    Put the measuring cup in the microwave for about a minute, depending on how much soap you have.

    Step 4

    When you take it out it should look like milk and there should be NO CLUMPS. If there are, put it in for another 30 seconds.

    Step 5

    Begin adding the soap dye.

    Step 6

    Then stir it...

    Step 7

    Stop when you have a solid color.

    Step 8

    Next, add in your soap scent and stir. Mine is vanilla😍

    Step 9

    Now take your mold, and lay it on a flat surface like so👆

    Step 10

    Then pour in your 'soap' mixture.

    Step 11

    It will take about 20-30 minutes for the soap to harden and take shape.

    Step 12

    Keep in mind that you can pretty much use any type of mold for this so be creative!

    Step 13

    These are also great little gifts around the holidays or for someone's birthday.

    Step 14

    Once the soap is hard, use your thumbs to force it out of the mold. It may seem hard at first but it should come out.

    Step 15

    Ta-da!!!! Here's what the rose looked like👆

    Step 16

    And the other one!
