SCRUB A DUB DUB

so...seems that my hand scrub post from last year has been pretty popular...and i thought it was time to take it to the next level...that's right...how 'bout a body scrub?...that will bubble up when you rub rub rub in the tub tub tub!...or shower...lol...

bubbling sugar scrub

grab some sugar...and then your shower gel...mmmm...banana nut bread....

step 1

fill up your container with some sugar and start squirting in the shower gel...

step 2

that's about enough...

step 3

mix 'er up!...now if at anytime...you feel it's too thick...then add some more shower gel...if it's too runny...add more sugar...

step 4

all done!...

step 5

since this batch is for gifting...i'm putting it in a purtier container...this is one i had on hand...but you can pick these up at almost any craft store...just take a looksie in the soap section...oh...and i'd suggest using plastic...because glass and the shower don't really mix...

step 6

just spoon it in until it's all filled!...and if you're lucky...you made some extra to keep for yourself...

step 8

here's a test run on the arm...see all that scrubby goodness?...yeah...imagine that every where!...that's the reason for using the shower gel!...

see all that scrubby goodness?...

i did some really simple decorating by doing just a stripe of patterned paper tape around the container...then found a great little flower to add the finishing touch!...

sugar scrub

now remember...this stuff isn't just for gift giving...this is fab to have on hand all the time!...

****check out my linky party directory to see where i'm linking to this week!...
