As far as I’m concerned, Alpha Monogram should win “Stamp Set of the Year.”  I may be slightly biased, since I love to slap a monogram on just about everything…which is exactly why I’m excited about today’s post.

I’m sharing another “from pin to paper” project. Back when Alpha Monogram launched, the CSS blog featured a monogram soap project (here) which I absolutely loved! Today, I’m bringing you a holiday version of this project…

Have you ever tried to make your own soaps? They are incredibly easy to create and cost lots less than the store-bought versions.

Scroll down for a list of supplies used to create today’s SW edition, then visit me at Damask Love for the tutorial, and tips for this project.

Oh! And how can I forget the pretty packaging…See you there!

Keep it Crafty,
Amber KG
