HOMEMADE BUBBLE BATH
I've received some feedback that there have been issues with the previous recipe that I linked to for homemade bubble bath so I've searched for some alternatives. I haven't tried these out but if you do, please let me know how well they turn out. I find that when it comes to recipes, no matter how trusted the source I think it's always best to do a small test batch first before committing to making any large quantities.

(back of bottle)
For packaging I hunted down a frosted glass bottle (I've recycled a bottle previously used for a Japanese spirit) and used a cork from Riot Art and Craft. Alternatively, you can use a screw top- this would probably also look good. I did some digging and found this great frosted glass bottle with a cork online at Save on Crafts. They have quite a range of glass bottles and they also sell corks in various sizes. A good way to hunt down glass bottles online is to do a search on Kaboodle. For the labels I've chosen a very light brown recycled paper to print onto for a slightly vintage feel, however you can also print onto white to get a very striking, high contrast image.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR YOUR PACKAGING:
- Scissors/Scalpel or Guillotine
- Double-sided tape
- Colour inkjet or laser printer
- Medium sized glass bottle - (preferably frosted glass with cork)
- Light brown recycled paper or white textured paper
- Bottle Labels - Download
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PACKAGING
- Print out your labels on your colour printer.
- Carefully cut around the edges of your back and front labels with a scissors.
- Cut out your round seal. I found that cutting carefully around the seal with a scissors was sufficient but if you want to be really precise try using a circle punch of a similar size or an adjustable rotary circle cutter.
- Cut a thin rectangular strip of paper for the top seal- the dimensions of this depend on your bottle. Experiment and see what looks best.
- Use double-sided tape to stick your labels and seal in place on bottle.
And you're done!
