 DECOUPAGED SOAPS & CINDERELLA BOXES


Good quality soaps have been sealed, painted and decorated with a cut out image before being lacquered.  They may be used, and the image remains until the soap is finished - or just use as a decoration in the bathroom.  Cost (including gift bag) $6.

The CINDERELLA BOXES (so called as they resemble a pumpkin) are recycled Coke  bottles.  They are quite robust having been lacquered after being decorated with paper serviettes.  The petalled lids open and close and make perfect containers for sweets or trinkets.  Cost - large $7 and small $6.
