    Is there a special paper that must be used to wrap soap in once it's ready to be sold.

    Thanks

    Depends on the soap. M&P soap should not be wrapped in paper, it needs to be wrapped air tight.

    and I don't recommend tissue paper for soap of any sort - it's too sensitive to moisture, and any color can transfer to the bars.

    I like craft, glassine, corrugated, wallpaper, mulberry...

    soap

    for c/p soap you can use pretty photocopy paper and print your logo, etc and the wrap around the soap.

    for c/p soap i sometimes go to the dollar stores and buy pretty gift wrap.

    you can also wrap in strips of colored lace or materials.

    For round cp soaps, I use coffee filters. They don't stain, they allow the soap to breathe, & you can still smell the soap. It's very rugged & holds up to be packed & unpacked for craft fairs.

    Tissue Paper

    I do use tissue paper to wrap my soaps in. I like that people can smell my soap easily through the tissue paper.

    I don't resell my soap and give it as gifts, so the soap is quickly unwrapped for use. I've never know the tissue color to come off on my soaps but they aren't wrapped in it for very long.

    Wrapping soap in Paper

    I LOVE to wrap my CP soaps in rice paper, but I have a hard time finding it since my source dried up. Recently, I have been using floral tissue paper which is waxed on one side. It is sturdier than regular tissue and I use the wax side against the soap. You can smell the scent through it. Sometimes I use cooking parchment paper in a pinch. For gifts, I then drop the paper wrapped soaps into cello bags and seal with a ribbon tied into a bow.

    You can use almost any thin paper to wrap your soaps. I have used printer paper and created a my own design using Printmaster. You can use brown paper or gift wrap.
    I use the following method to make wrapping easier. I cut a strip of white card stock the width of my bar and wrap it around the bar, trimming to fit and either gluing together or taping the ends together. I then cut a piece of paper the size I need for the bar of soap and wrap just like a package. I have found that this makes for faster and neater wrapping.

    Re: Wrapping soap in Paper

    The waxed tissue paper sounds ideal. Where do you purchase yours?

    Wrapping soap in Paper

    I got my waxed tissue from: Papermart.com

    I think you could get some from a florist shop or floral supply place. The package I got from Papermart will last me a lifetime!!

    It comes in several nice looking colors but I just got the plain white.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the tip on waxed florist tissue paper. I'm going to purchase some white. Then I can use any other regular tissue paper as a second layer on the outside.

    Thanks again!
