Soldier Soap: Part One

My father's birthday is coming up next week, and like always, I never know what to get him. He's at that stage in his life where he just goes and buys those things he wants. I have always thought about sending him on cruises and such, but that is SO not in the budget. So, I have resorted to novelty gifts.
My father is an Army Veteran and loves all things camo and military related.  I came up with this "Soldier Soap" gift for him.  My plan is to also do a bar soap version to come later this week.

I purchased these little toy soldiers from Walmart for about a dollar.
 I chose Dial Complete, because the bottle had a wide enough mouth for the toys to slide inside.
Here is the picture of them in the bottle.
 Here is the finished product complete with tag.
