Hello, my name is aj; and I’m a ‘soapaholic’.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ve probably already figured that out! I must confess that my addiction goes further than that.
I can’t resist ‘sniffing soaps’ at the store.
No, not the soaps in the soap aisle at the grocery store. The ‘fancy’ soaps that come in pretty boxes. Marshall’s is my favorite store for ‘soap sniffing’. But I don’t sniff just ‘any soap’! No ‘floral’ fragrances for me (except Lavender). Other floral scents make me sneeze! And I only like ‘neutral color’ soaps.I I was attracted to this box of soap because of the pretty box. When I opened it and saw that it was PINK, I quickly put the lid back on and replaced it on the shelf withOUT even smelling it. Because I don’t like pink soaps!
Just as I was starting to reach for the next box to open and sniff; the fragrance from that box with pink soap gently wafted by and it was AMAZING! It smelled like a fresh strawberry pie. I could NOT resist a full on sniff. I HAD to buy it!
The soap itself went directly into my shower and the box to my craft table. I especially like how the box was decorated with the baker’s twine. (will have to remember that trick!)
I love upcycling these pretty soap boxes. Usually I have to re-cover the entire box; but this one was already decorated so nicely that I only had to cover the ‘soap’ information.
I found some print scrap book paper that coordinated with the paper on the box to cover the front label.
Used a piece of the same paper to cover the bottom of the box.
There was a removable ‘riser’ in the bottom of the box that I wanted to leave in place because it SMELLED so good; so I added some of the same paper to it.
