I put this little "Spa" kit together using RBD cardstock, Designer Paper and Stamps. I also used their GREAT test tubes w/ corks and 1/2 lb. candy boxes. I filled the candy box with cherry filled chocolates….yum!
The test tubes, as Devon has shown already, are heat proof as they are pyrex strength. So, I rolled 2 of the test tubes in the Palette stamp and stick glue pads and then covered with iridescent ice embossing powder, heated and let cool. For the spiral look, use the Scor-tape and wind around the test tube in an even spiral. Peel off the backing to expose the tape and pour over the emboss powder again. BEFORE you heat, be sure that you blow hard to get all the powder off the glass…you want to ensure that you have no powder residue on the glass or it will melt when you heat it.
NOTE: I used a pair of small bamboo tongs to hold my tubes as I heated them…they get VERY hot, DO NOT fill them until they have cooled.
For the sake of the photo, I did not put the bath oil in the spiral tube and I was unable to find tiny bath beads so I filled 2 with bath salts instead but you get the idea. You could very easily add a pumice stone, sponge, a pair of those gloves…etc.
This is a view of the "purse" open.
I will be using this template for a few more variations so watch for updates!
Relax, Unwind & Enjoy!
