Hello friends. Terri here, to help you celebrate National Bubble Bath Day! Yes indeed, I’ll take any reason to chill and have a relaxing bubble bath. But not just any old bubble bath; we’re having a Unicorn Bubble Bath!
Creative Label Making Tips
If you’re the crafty sort, you probably already have similar items that I’ve used, in your craft stash. Shaped nesting dies are the cornerstone of this project. However, you can easily trim your label into a square shape. The unicorn stamping set from MFT Stamps was colored with Copic markers and my sentiment was printed from my computer. I’ll share more about the free font that I used, on my blog.
Incorporating Adhesive Embellishments
I wanted to add sparkle and shine, so I added a touch of glue from the Dual Tip Glue Pen to my Unicorn horn. Sprinkle a bit of gold glitter for sparkle. For my colored bubbles, I applied some of the Adhesive Dots Small and sprinkled clear embossing powder. Tap the excess powder back into the jar, then heat emboss with a heat craft gun. This gives a glossy shine to the unicorn bubbles.
When to use Repositionable Adhesive
If you’ve ever wondered when is the right time to use your repositionable adhesive products, here is a classic example. Since I plan on creating a white embossed Adhesive Dot border around my black label backdrop, I want to center my white label temporarily. Simply drop the E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refill cartridge into the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and run a couple lines of this less tacky adhesive. It helps to center my focal point for laying down an adhesive dot border, using my Adhesive Dots Micro. Once my dots are lined up, I can then remove my white label and begin the heat embossing process.
I failed to get a photo of this process but you can see the results in the first and final photo. Be sure to switch your cartridge to the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill to secure both labels together and to adhere to the jar.
Unicorn Bubble Bath Mix
I totally cheated on this recipe. It was so easy and inexpensive. I took advantage of the fact that the Crayola bathtub finger paint soap was half price after Christmas. I also bought a large bottle of Soft Soap in a creamy white formula. Because I thought it would be easier to layer my soaps, I purchased an inexpensive medium sized apothecary glass jar.
I simply layered my soaps, starting with the creamy white Soft Soap, then alternating layers, one color at a time between the white layers. The glass jar lid is wide and easy to remove so you can pour or scoop your soap with a spoon into your bath water.
This bubble bath mixture will last a very long time and it’s a great way to entice your little ones to take a bath!
