Glycerin soap is an effective method of soap making. This project uses goat's milk glycerin soap for a hydrating, creamy cleanser. We packed the soap in clear boxes with brushed copper lids ($8 each, containerstore.com) for a luxe feel that makes for the perfect gift.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

We whipped them up using glycerin and goat's-milk soap-making kits (according to the instructions on the package), glycerin soap color, and flexible silicone molds. (Optional: Dress up the pale bars with pink sea salt and the orange ones with exfoliating dry oatmeal.)

Step 2

Once the bars were ready to be released from the forms (which takes only about an hour), we stacked them in cupcake wrappers and packed three sets in a clear gold-topped box worthy of the treasures inside.
