Summer is in the air in Michigan (finally!) and USA Independence Day is just around the corner. If you're a soap nut, it's time to get in the spirit  for summer holiday craft shows. These star soaps are easy to do and a perfect Fourth of July craft for the kiddos. If you run a summer camp, this is a project for all ages.

The following molds were used:

Mold Market Mold #219
Celestial Freedom Stars Economy Mold
Mini Embed Stars Economy Mold
Lollipop Sticks 

Melt & Pour Soap: It's Graduation Time

These graduation cap soaps are made using two Mold Market molds. The base is #276 cupcake mold and the cap top is  #256 s'more mold. The graham cracker portion of the s'more mold was flipped over and secured to the cupcake with melted soap. The round button in the center of the cap was made using a mini circle cutter.

Gold and silver cording was attached to the cap with melted soap. How fun to make these soaps in a graduate's school colors.

Have fun with this idea and enjoy the Memorial Day weekend. It's going to be hot, humid and sunny here in Michigan, 91 degrees!
