Gingerbread Sugar Scrub Gift

The smell of gingerbread always conjures up great Christmas memories. When I found this simple recipe for a Gingerbread Sugar Scrub, and knew it would make a great present to have on hand for the season. And with winter comes dry skin - so this not only smells great, it made my hands feel so smooth after using it.

 Gingerbread Sugar Scrub Gift Supplies:
Step 1. Stamp image with watermark ink onto Kraft cardstock. Heat emboss with white powder. Color highlights with pencils. Fussy Cut.
 Step 2. Die cut a scalloped circle to fit over lid of jar.  
Step 3. Use the inner part of the lid to trace around and mark on the back side of the scalloped circle.
 Step 4. Cut between each scallop, stopping at the drawn circle.
 Step 5. Put a bead of glue around the outer lid.
 Step 6. Center over the drawn circle and allow to dry. Fold each scallop down.  
Step 7. Cut nesting circles to make label for the top. Use watermark pen to write "Gingerbread Sugar Scrub" and heat emboss with gold powder.
