spa slumber party bath buckets

Earlier this week I shared a few things from my daughter's spa slumber party . I thought I would show you the final touches that I used to create her bath beauty basket favors (say that 5 times fast!).


I found some plastic baskets at the dollar store and took some vinyl along with me to make sure it would stick (I learned that the hard way!).

I got my silhouette machine humming and printed out some flowers and each girls name on some cream colored vinyl.

Then I stuck the vinyl on the bath baskets. Easy as that!


One of the activities that the girls did was to make peppermint foot soak salts. It really sounds fancier than it was. I found a few bags of foot soak at the dollar store, poured it into a big bowl so the girls were non the wiser, and had each girl scoop out several scoops into their bags. It kept them busy and gave them something that they made to take home.

Before the girls came, I used one of the free templates on my silhouette machine and cut out labels with each of their initials on them. Then I glued them on to some boxes I found (wait for it...) at the dollar store.

I think they turned out really nicely and added a sweet personal touch to it.

The last thing I added to the bath basket were these personalized journals from Jones Design Company .
You can get the tutorial here .

I added a few nail files and some nail polish to the baskets and they were complete.
