Playing Elf

Tonight was the night to play elf and wrap all of my presents. I decided I wanted to wrap everything before we leave to visit with family (my stepbrother, his wife, and daughter and one of our stepsisters). I bought some gift boxes the other day to put my homemade gifts for my friends in. They were super cheep for $1.50 a piece.

I dove into the tissue paper stash and cut out squares to layer between the bath bombs I made before.

After  I started situating the bath bombs in the boxes I realized that they were too big to fit four -or even three- in one layer. That left me with putting in two per layer but that left them woefully unbalanced. After a quick brainstorm I realized that I could put in little balls of tissue paper to stabilize them.

(I took out the tissue paper for this picture but it would have been in between the two layers.)

On the very top I placed the lip balm I made last weekend using this recipe. I love it. There was some left over that I’ve been using and it works very well. I went to Walgreens and bought some travel four travel containers that worked perfectly.

All it required was sunflower oil, unbleached beeswax (it said grated in the instructions but I just shaved off of a block (Is that what it’s called) with a knife), honey, and essential oils. Instead of using essential oils for the scent I used pure peppermint extract because the only essential oils I have is lavender and that, I think would be gross. It’s super easy to make, the hardest part is the cleanup.

At the end I had one bath bomb left over so an executive decision and it was wrapped up in some leftover tissue paper and was saved for the number one elf. 😉
