That sounds interesting! Picture?I use parchment paper, run landscape bands on the computer, cut 4 bands per sheet, run yarn through punched holes & tie it off..probably about .03 cents per bar, maybe. My yarn is from WalMart and is a 500 yard skein with 4 strands, I separate it & now I have 1000 yards of yarn. Really cheap..
Great idea, I think I will try it. I do not sell soap, just give it away to my friends, and to a local abused women shelter. I am always looking for packaging ideas.I think of you are giving your soap away for fun, (vs giving out samples to try to start/build a business), packing isn't necessary. But it is nice to keep the soap fresh and clean - soap likes to attract dust, hair, etc! You can do something simple and cheap - Costco sells boxes of deli wax paper. Cut them in half along the crease and it's just the right size for my bar of soap. (yours may be bigger or smaller.) Or put them in bags like this:
I beg to differ. If you have no skills, you wouldn’t be a Soaper. Let just say you haven’t tackled that particular skill “Yet.” But it’s coming2-4cents per bar. I sell, so it's more cost effective for me to buy shrink bands and sticker labels in bulk. It also makes it easier to watch for sales too. When I first started I used paper bands, which were cheap, but a huge time suck for me to create and cut. (I has no skillz)
I noticed that when you have added your ingredients you haven’t used the INCI name for your oils? I am new to soap making and was under the impression that you had to do this, I may be confused about this do you list them somewhere else? Sorry for all the questions xxI buy Georgia-Pacific card stock from Office Max. White 110 - 150 sheets - 8.5" x 11". I print 3 cigar band type labels per sheet. 3 X 150 sheets = 450 labels. The bands fit around the bars perfectly with the ends open for sniffing. I don't remember how much I pay for the card stock, but it comes to about 3¢ per cigar band.
