By now, you’re probably well aware of my monogram obsession. If you’re not, take a look at THIS, THIS, THIS & THIS.

See. I told you. I love me some monograms.

Everything is better when it’s monogrammed…including soap. Especially handmade soap, which is crazy easy to create. You’ll need a few items to create your own soap, but once you have the supplies on hand, you can go to town and create tons of beautiful gifts.

TIP: To remove from the mold, use a knife around the edges to loosen.

  1. Amber: Would you be so kind as to tell me where I can purchase the monogram molds that you used in the soap making? I am only finding the alpha sets which I assume you are using for digital items and not the actual molds. Am I wrong in assuming that? I cannot find where the actual mono molds are.

    1. Hi Nancy! Great question. I actually used the Alpha stamp set to alter the mold. I used a traditional soap mold and placed the stamps inside of the mold. Hope this makes sense and helps you! Let me know if you have any other questions!
