These are adorable, but as somebody who does free-standing machine embroidered lace using Solvy, I feel the need to say don't get too carried away using these in the bath.
The instructions tell you not to discard the water used to dissolve it from embroidery by pouring it down the drain because it can cause plumbing issues.
A few sprinkled in an occasional bath might not add up, but not a couple of handfuls. Not recommended.

Good to know DiannaLynn - you've used it more than I have it sounds! We dont want any clogged plumbing, so hopefully a few sprinkled in a bath here in there won't hurt.

@ DiannaLynne... Thank you so much for this info. I think this is a great gift idea and contemplated making for myself and others. At the same time I was wondering about butting down the drain as we have a septic. My husband read that you shouldn't flush even the "flushable" wet wipes so we stopped doing that. Apparently these type of things stick to the sides of the septic tank and gum it up.

These little hearts are dissolvable so there isn't a problem with your tub draining. The flushable wipes are not.

I painted the soap on both sides as per the directions, but it stuck to the cookie sheet I used to lay it on and when I picked it up to put it on the rack it started coming apart..tried it again going very quickly, thinking that if I worked faster it wouldn’t have time to fall apart, but same results...I used all of the exact materials you listed...what is the trick?

Was it fully dry when you pulled it off? Maybe try letting it dry on wax paper instead and see if peeling off of that is easier? I honestly don't have the exact answer for you - I left mine to try on my gas stove burner covers (off of course) and there were less contact points of the paper and the "rack" I used to dry it on.

Nothing is said about what to lay the paper on when painting it, although it looks to be on a plastic cutting board in the picture shown. Should I have assumed I should leave it on the board and then put on a drying rack? Why would you need a drying rack then ? I just assumed when it said grab a drying rack that it meant transfer to that rack, but that’s when the tearing happened. I’ll try it again and just leave it on the cookie sheet or cutting board to dry and see if that works. Thanks for trying to help:)
Where do you buy essential oils & do they have any men scents ?
I think I'll try this for my fiancé for V-day ! Are there any men scents?
I tried making these, but they get stuck in the paper cutter and by the time I peel them out, they’re a mess. Plus, the punch doesn’t work that great. What am I missing?
