- Clear plastic bag: 4 inches wide by 8 inches tall, and at least 1.5 millimeters thick
- Clear glycerin soap
- Heat-resistant measuring cup
- Double-boiler or microwave
- Rubbing alcohol
- Small spray bottle
- Plastic fish
- Gift tag
Step 1Open the plastic bag and cuff the top enough so that the bag will stand on its own.
Step 2Place 4 ounces of solid clear glycerin soap in a heat-resistant measuring cup, and melt in a double-boiler or microwave.
Step 3Pour half the melted soap into the bag. Spray with alcohol until bubbles disappear. Allow to cool and harden for about 1 hour.
Step 4Re-melt remaining soap. Pour a small amount of melted soap on top of cooled soap in bag. Spray with alcohol. Position fish in melted soap, and let set 15 minutes to lock into place.
Step 5Pour the remaining soap over fish. Spray with alcohol. Gather bag above soap and pinch with clothespin. Allow soap to cool for 15 minutes.
Step 6Remove clothespin, and tie with a ribbon threaded with a gift tag.
