We will prepare six colors of soap for the confetti and streamers portion of  this recipe. Each of the colors will be poured on a piece of wax paper. Once it sets up, we will cut half of the soap for streamers and half for confetti. By pouring the soap on a piece of wax paper, it will allow us to create a very thin layer of soap. We will also add a small amount of vegetable glycerin to give the soap some additional flexibility.
