Package Soap in Bags
Alongside labelling your soaps and packaging your soaps yourself in boxes Additionally, you can package soaps with bags. There are a variety of types of bags that you can make use of, such as the organza bag, waxed paper bags, as well as bags made of cloth or muslin.
I love these bags made of muslin made by Kiln Fired Diffusers to homemade soap packaging Boxes . They’re beautiful and also conceal soap inside the bags, they’re ideal even if you don’t own an appealing soap bar. Also, you can stamp plain muslin bag by using the help of a stamp and fabric ink to make your own unique bags to store soap in.
Additionally, soap savers can be another option to consider as a soap packaging concept. They can also offer your client or gift recipient with a bonus present as well as making soap yourself.
This idea for packaging soaps originated from Pigeon River Soaps is another inventive way to pack soaps made from scratch in bags made of muslin. These soaps ‘ favours are placed in a muslin bags that is decorated with cotton strings and raffia. A button at the centre will be the final finishing touch.

Clear cellophane bags can also be an alternative. They allow you to view the soap in the bag and look beautiful when you have a beautiful soap bar you wish to showcase. If you need to label the soap, you can put a label on the bag’s backside or tie it to the ribbon to seal the bag.
This soap packaging concept is from Global Custom Packaging is a excellent example of how you can make clear cellophane bags protect your soap.

Additionally, this popular soap décor made of vintage made by Global Custom Packaging also illustrates how to pack soap into bags.

Global Custom Packaging are another excellent option to package soaps. It is possible to use round soap tins to make soap bars that are sizeable for guests. You can also use rectangular containers to pack single-use soap slivers, or travel soaps, such as these single-use travel soap slices made by Mint as well as Soak. Tins can also be an ideal way to package shaving soaps as well as to offer the option of refill bars for soap.
Another fantastic way to package soaps is to use small buckets made of tin. This easy gift idea from Andrea is a personal favourite. Andrea bundles a selection of soaps into an attractive gift box. To achieve this look it is first wrapped soaps in parchment paper, then wraps bakers’ twine around them to form the form of a bow.
Then, she puts a bunch of soaps into the cellophane bag and then adds ribbon and jingle bells as a decoration. The soaps are then placed in an reusable tin container to give away. Step-by-step pictures of the process below.
Unique Soap Packaging Ideas You May Not Have Considered
Making use of cigar band labels and labels with stickers and packaging soap in containers, bags and tins is a few standard soap packaging concepts. It’s the small details that you include to these ways of packaging soaps made from scratch that makes them distinctive. You don’t need to use boxes for Soap or labels for packaging your soaps. Here are some other innovative soap packaging ideas that I believe are attractive and unique.
Wrap Soaps in Fabric
If you don’t want to use paper to wrap soap in instead, you can make use of fabric instead. Cut a piece of fabric big sufficient to cover your own soap bar Boxes. Wrap the soap exactly the way you would wrap an item of gift or present, in the case of wrapping it with wrapping paper. It is possible to use tape to keep the soap shut. Alternately, you could hold it in its place with washi or ribbon. You can also seal the fabric using wax in a complimentary or contrast shade.
Felt Homemade Soap in Lieu of Packaging
Like you put cold process soaps with fabric, you can cover them with felt! It’s a great way to embellish your soaps and to package in the same way. For soaps that you want to feel you can use wool felt as well as the method of wet felting to make sure that your soap bars are covered.
Use a needle felting technique to decorate on the front of the felt, if you want. When soap is used it shrinks the felt by the soap. Wool is not only naturally antibacterial, but it aids in boosting lather production and provide gentle exfoliation to homemade soaps.
This felted soap by Global Custom Packaging is the ideal example of how beautiful felted soap looks. You can include any image or design that you would like to your soaps to mark a particular holiday or season.
Use Ephemera for Soap Packaging
As with scrapbooking and decorative papers You can also make use of an ephemera container to store your soaps , and give them an individual look. A button is used as an additional decoration to bring this idea of packaging soap together.
Pack Your Soap in The Soap Dish or Ceramic Tray
Another way to store soaps is to mix your soap in an soap dish , or ceramic tray. The only thing you have to do is put the soap bar into the soap dish you like. You can then use a ribbon to join the soap and soap dish. I would recommend using a self-draining soap dish, if you can. This lets soap dry between use. This means that your soap made from scratch can last for longer.
I love these soap dishes made from ceramic. They are great to give soaps as homemade gifts. For alternatives that are less expensive I enjoy these wooden soap dishes and soap dishes that have a leaf design made by Purple Has Designs.
One of my most loved suggestions for soap packaging is to make use of baskets of berries. They contain soaps that are similar to boxes. But, they can create a look that is more like a gift Soap boxes and Kraft oil boxes. Additionally, if you want to store multiple soaps at a time in the basket, you can include other items, like an actual lip balm.
I prefer to fill the basket with a the filler made of crinkle paper, add my soaps, and then finish it off with a huge bow made of fabric to make homemade gifts. This idea to package homemade soaps is like the gift tin previously mentioned.
.The berry baskets made of paper come in a myriad of styles and colours. Baskets made of wood, such as those from Pink Lemonade Party are a stylish and economical way to store soaps, whether as homemade gifts for your friends and family, or for gift baskets that you intend to sell.
In addition, if you’re making use of berry baskets for gifting your soaps. Made from scratch I like the idea of using ceramic berry baskets as packaging options for soaps. They are not only durable however, they can also be used again and again to use in other ways. It is also possible to expand the notion by adding seeds packets , or a spade or gardening trowel.
