Today, I’m speaking at a WBO luncheon in Seattle. The Women Business Owners organization is the group that presented me with the Nellie Cashman award last year. I’m super excited to talk about the growth of Bramble Berry and share my experiences with an enthusiastic audience.
Since I’m out of the office today, I thought this would be a great day to share a project I was working on earlier this week. I was inspired by some adorable soap boxes online and thought “Hey, I can totally do that”. I dug into my junk drawer, pulled out my super sized hole punch and punched out the top of a Bramble Berry white soap box. I popped in a soap and jazzed it up with some ribbon. Easy right?
You can wrap the soap before you put it in the box, but I want people to be able to see and smell my fabulous creation! Don’t worry, you can still do this project if you don’t have a super sized hole punch. In the picture below, I used a craft knife to create my own shape on the top of the box (well, I traced a shape that I found online).
TIP: When you’re tracing, lightly cut through the design at first, then take the design off and cut all the way through. To make sure your craft knife doesn’t cut through to the back of your box, stick a thick piece of cardboard inside of the box. I’m sure you have an old Bramble Berry box laying around (Grin).
