Hey, hey! Happy Hump Day...
I've had the priviledge of working the book fair at the school this week, and let's just say I've never been so glad to be home cleaning my house today...
I've had a couple people ask me about my quickie way of making samples that I posted about here and what I do now that bricks have been discontinued.
And in my honest opinion, doing the same thing, but with bars, IS EVEN EASIER if that is possible!
I needed some samples quick on Saturday as I was heading out for the day so I gathered my materials.
A bar of Cerise (how the heck do you say that?), my handy dandy wavy slicer, that still slices like BUTTAH, I tell ya!, and some small baggies (from Michaels, Hob Lob, etc. sometimes in the jewelry aisle).
I just popped out the whole bar.
And I used my wavy slicer to slice off a row, as just breaking it off might imply that I don't care. Or that I was lazy. And y'all know that lazy is my middle name is not a nice word to call someone.
And also, please don't notice the dusting of white spray paint on my hand. It was there all weekend. But not because I WAS TOO LAZY to put gloves on while spray painting my cute little side table...and then it wouldn't wash off no matter how MacBeth I got.
Just LOOK at that clean, wavy line. I'm NEVER simply breaking off a cube of my Scentsy bar EVER AGAIN!
Then I just started slicing that row of wax.
Easy peasy chicken squeezy.
11 samples in about 11 seconds - land speed record for making samples, I swear.
Popped 'em in the little bags,
Stapled them to my WOTM flyer and
Voila! One catalog with scent sample attached to WOTM flyer ready to go out and do it's job!
Seriously, the easiest, quickest laziest way to make samples when you need 'em in a hurry!
And don't forget to warm your new scents so you too can smell like you are 'walking along a charming Paris side street, where a slight breeze makes the cherry trees - cerisiers- shower you with pink sugar petals. Cerise is an embrace of cherry blossom, fresh plum, and soft white blooms warmed by golden vanilla'
And it would definitely be a good idea to put labels with the fragrance name and description (taken straight from the catalog) for any samples you make up that might not be Scent of The Month and attached to the flyer.
OK? Got it?
