Making your own soap labels
DYI Soap Labels
Ideas for labelling and presenting your Natural Soap
There are many creative ways to wrap and label you soap.
Soap Label Design
Over the years I’ve tried many different ways to wrap and label my soap, this is the one I now use the most and I get 5 labels per page.
I print them myself, cut them and simply wrap them around the bar of soap.
These labels can be created by using Word on your computer and add as many text boxes as you need. These boxes can be moved around to fit on the sheet so when cut your label it will wrap around the soap with the information being displayed where you would like it. Once the label is created save it to your computer and you can reprint them as needed.
Wrap around your soap
Another nice way to present your soap is to wrap the soap with a nice cord or string and attach a tag to it with your name, the ingredients and other information you would normally put on your label.
The bars could even be wrapped in tissue paper or brown paper before putting the cord around it.
Sheets of labels is another option, and these labels are available in all different shapes and sizes. Using these you can design your label however you want.
Using clip art you can add a cute picture or whatever you like.
With these labels you can place a band of printer paper or tissue paper and attach you sticky label to that.
You can purchase soapboxes and put your soap in a box. They look a little more professional and labels can be placed on the front and back.
Use the printed sticker labels and place them on these boxes.

Below are pictures of some great ideas for wrapping your soap.
You can be as creative as you like. Have fun with it and try different things.
Tissue paper comes in all kinds of colors and patterns.
I use tissue paper for wrapping my guest size soaps and then put a small label around them.
I also use tissue paper to wrap the men’s and ladies shaving soaps I make and then use a round label attached to the top to hold the paper on the soap and of course it contains all the information needed to be on the label.

I use tissue paper when mailing out soaps to customer, by individually wrapping each different scent before putting it in the box to ship off.
When labelling your soap make sure you adhere to the labeling regulations. These regulation need to be adhered to whether you are giving away your soap away as a gift or selling it as an artisan or business owner.

These are beautiful examples! I haven’t made soap yet per se but I do make lotion bars and usually I wrap them in parchment paper with linen cordage and a special touch of clay leaves I make myself.
I especially like the first one, it’s very vintage, and the tissue paper makes a great and cheaper alternative to parchment paper.
Thanks for the ideas!
I like the added touch to clay leaves to your lotion bars. It’s nice when we can add that little touch, I think people appreciate that. Tissue paper does work very well and I love the fact that it comes in all kinds of colors and patterns. Thanks for stopping by the website.
I wish I had found soap making sooner. This make a nice holiday gift for people. This is something friends will love because it would be better than buying a block of soap, making it myself would add a personal touch. I might even make a bunch of soap and try to sell it on etsy or something.
Hand made soaps make wonderful Christmas gifts.
You got my attention with your post about shampoo bars so I thought I’d check out this one as well 🙂 I love the first idea of how to label the soap bars,; it is super creative and easy. It is printed in a neat little row, cut the strip and it wraps all the way around. The other ideas are cute as well. I like the one with twine or some sort of colorful rope (maybe even a ribbon) with a tag on it that says the ingredients, etc. Fun to read these ideas! Thanks.
I’m always trying to come up with something different to try. So many ways to wrap you soap for sale, or for a gift.
Is this for wrapping your own soap, or prior to selling them? It’s easier to label things we want these days with technology where it is. I like the soap wrapped in string, that is classy. I wasn’t even aware that I could buy soap boxes, I’ll have to check that out.
Soap boxes are a great way to present your soap. I have started using them since the Coronavirus hit.
