This project started when a few other soapers on the forum I was a member of put out a challenge to the other soapers to discover other creative ways to used re-batched soap. When your just starting the soap making journey we seem to amass quite a stash of soaps that are just not up to the mark, or they're the wrong colour, fragrance etc.
I decided to make a gingerbread house, I don't know why I chose to do so because there was not logical way of even using the soap lol. Maybe donate it to a childcare centre and let the kids demolish it and get their hands washed at the same time :-) I was happy with the results and so I decided to display how I made it up and put it all together.
I photographed the house against a plain background and this gave me the option of adding different background images (Spring, Summer. Autumn or Winter) to the house just to make it a little more interesting. The lady in the bottom left corner of the first photo is not related to me. Should she bear any resemblance to someone you know it is purely accidental :-P
This is the finished house, read on to see the tutorial on how I constructed it.
