Foot Soak… for 1000
I am making 1000 Peppermint Foot Soak packets to put into some Swag Bags for two craft fairs. 1000! Anytime you do 1000 of anything it is a bigger project than you might suspect.
But, the joy in this is that for 1000 items, it is relatively affordable and quick to do.
As I am sewing these little babies, stuffing bags, stamping tags (yes, I hand stamped all of them…), I have ample opportunity to think, plan, dream. And you know what? These little bags would make great little gifts!
*You can tie them on to a gift and use the tag as the to:/from: label
*You can put one in each Christmas card you mail out. Your card would smell wonderful in the mail! Wouldn’t you love a gentle Peppermint scent in your mail? How fun is that?
*You can add it to a little hostess thank you for all the holiday entertaining. You can add a note about using the invigorating foot soak after the outpouring of love they gave to you in their hospitality.
Small, simple, but so meaningful. Make a few, make 1000.
Peppermint Posh Foot Soak
Peppermint Essential Oil
Dried Peppermint Leaves (optional)
Mix together in a bowl. I usually let this sit for a few minutes to let the oils and salts marry one another. (I’m a romantic at heart…)
Put into glassine bags. Add tag, and sew along the top with a festive thread.
Amounts of each? Well, for a batch of 100, I used an 8 lb bag of the salts and added about 20 drops of Peppermint oil. I poured some dried peppermint leaves in (maybe 1/4 c?), and mixed it all together. I had a small bag of the leaves from a local health food store that cost about $2, and it was enough for all 1000 bags.
Pennies for each item. With 1000 things to put together, I didn’t want to spend very much money on each item. That could add up fast! And I like little touches like this that don’t break the bank!
