Japanada Soap

Chichi.ca project: Day 38

Can you guess what I was planning to do with these shapes?

I made reversible soap called Japanada soap (Japan + Canada)!

This is the Japan side

And when you flip the soap to the other side…

Canada side!

I am supposed to make “where you are from” themed soap for this month’s soap challenge, but I couldn’t choose which I should say I’m from. I grew up in Japan, but I spent majority of my adult life in Canada. I am proud as Japanese, but I feel more comfortable in Canada… It’s too hard to decide 😦

So I did both 🙂

I am happy with the results!

    1. Thank you! It was pointed out that the shape of the maple leaf was not the Canadian maple… 😛

    What a fantastic idea to make your soap design reversible! I like the simplicity of it and your embeds are super clear. Both of your inspirations are definitely worthy! ; )
