    Hi,

    I just learned about soap leaves, a one time use tiny soap leaf. Anyone know where to find the molds? They wouldn't even have to be the shape of a leaf, maybe a small petal or other thin shape.

    Thanks,
    Terry

    I have made petals, snowflakes and leaves, but they were the silk ones that you dip into M&P, seems that little kids love these as well as hostesses for parties and such. I looked online for the silk items, it was cheaper than places like craft stores, even with the shipping. I hope this is what you are looking for. Good Luck!!!

    My friend bought some soap leaves and is putting them in the mail for me to see. From what she says, they are in the shape of a leaf, but super thin, so after one use there is nothing left. I could make them using shavings from my soap, but having a nice shape would be better.

    There was a tutorial on another blog a while back about using Water Soluble Paper and printing leaves/photos on them, and then dipping them into M&P soap. The end product is really thin, and single use.. the soap lathers, and the paper dissolves, leaving nothing behind.....

    I wonder if this is what you're talking about?

    It was my understanding that all soap is biodegradable? I have seen soap leaves in store and what Renee described seems to fit with those. Not sure how else you could get the soap thin and uniform enough.

    Renee,

    I think that is what I am looking for. I will look to see if I can find a blog. It might be more trouble than it is worth, unless you can do a big batch at one time.

    Thanks,Terry

    Thanks Renee, how is easy is that! I like the comment from someone who suggested large punches, rather than cutting them individually. I don't think I will be making hundreds of these, but perfect for guest bathroom, or would be good at a show to have samples of your scents.

    Thanks for your help.
