Snow Globe Soap
How to make soap snow globes directions:
Step 1:  Place blocks of the glycerin in a microwave safe container, and heat at 30 second intervals.  Once the glycerin has melted, add the fragrance and mix.
Step 2:  Pour the clear liquid into the mold, filling it about half way.  Add the ornament to the liquid glycerin, making sure that the string is sticking out the top of the mold.  Set this aside to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Step 3:  Sprinkle glitter on top of the hardened glycerin.
Step 4:  Melt more soap base cubes in the microwave.  Add blue dye to the liquid.  Add and mix just one drop at a time until you reach the desired color.
Step 5:  Pour the blue glycerin into the mold, on top of the glitter.  Let it cool at least 40-60 minutes.

      Kerry, great question. Yes, at some point you will find glitter on your hands but it rinses off when you rinse the soap off your hands. I used coarse glitter, so it washed off easily. I probably wouldn’t use ultra fine glitter with this project, just because that stuff is so hard to wash away!
