The holidays are here! For us in the handcrafted soap industry, this is our time! Soap makes wonderful gifts for family and friends. To make your soaps even more appealing as gifts, get creative with your holiday packaging. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Candy Wrapping

Here is a soap that I made using a Bramble Berry 12 bar square soap mold. I simply wrapped each in parchment paper, twisting the sides like a candy wrapper. You can then design and print a label to wrap around the soap.

Wax Paper + Embelishments

This is a post about wrapping cookies, but this would be perfect for handcrafted soap! I love the finished wrapping and that you can add any color or style of punched paper or embellishments.
