Carnation Cube Cuties Melt and Pour Tutorial

Along time ago I took a class at The Nova Studio to learn how to make single use sugar scrubs from Erin Pikor. When I saw this melt and pour tutorial on how to make Carnation Cube Cuties I thought of Erin's sugar scrub recipe.

This project is great for beginners and a great way to build some melt and pour soap skills. It requires you to keep your eye on the temperature of your soap because you do not want to melt the delicate jojoba beads or break the smooth layers.
