Beautiful Mother's Day Soap Idea

Mother's Day is May 9, and for us crafty types that means we should make plans for our special projects pretty soon.  I got my weekly email from Dover Publications today, telling me about this week's clip art sampler.  I LOVE these because they're all royalty free and their weekly picks are also free of charge!  You just right click and save to your computer, and you're ready to go.

This week's selection includes beautiful botanical illustrations from Redoute Flowers and Fruits. These would be perfect to use in place of the butterflies in version 3 of the Butterfly Soap Tutorial from Spring '10 Let's Get Soapy.  Mom would love these all natural soaps, featuring these pretty floral images printed on dissolving paper (which actually lasts for many many uses of the soap!). 

And if you're wondering how to wrap your special creations, check out this great Flickr group dedicated to soap packaging. Enjoy!
