Holiday Soap Wrap and Soap Cigar Band

Guest Author - Winsome Tapper

The holidays are here and it is time for gift giving. What better way to say you care than to give a handmade gift. Instead of a tutorial on making labels for soaps, I have designed a customizable soap wrap and soap cigarband that are classic in design. When I first created this design, I printed it out on a taupe colored paper. those of you who like Victorian designs, you will love this. If you want the design to have a more natural look, then print on Kraft or other off white paper. For a very upscale look, this design is wonderful printed on off-white/beige vellum or even smooth handmade paper.

The design is a high-resolution file, 300 dpi per inch. For those who may not be familiar with printing standards, that is a resolution for say, professional printer ready labels. I printed out my design on a laser printer and had no problems with it. You may use a inkjet printer. However, be cautious when taking the printed-paper from the printer tray and allow enough time for the design to dry before attempting to handle it. This file can also be saved and taken to Kinko�s and printed from their desk top applications on their laser color printers. See below for instructions on how to personalize the soap wrap and cigarband.


The soap wrap was created in Photoshop and Fireworks. It is originally saved as a Tif file, which is compatible with most desktop applications. The soap wrap and cigarband designs feature a trio of festive cherubs and these elements:

Soap Wrap

� Three customizable label fields, one on the face of the soap design, one on the side of the soap design and one on the back of the design.
� One blank TO and FROM field which can be further customized for gift giving, or taken out if this field is not needed
� One ingredient list and soap bar weight field � ingredient field and weight field may also be taken out if these fields are not needed.
� FONT used for 'Happy Holidays and From Our House to Yours' is Edwardian Script.
Below is a screenshot of the cherub soap wrap

Cherub Soap cigarbands

� Two customizable label fields, one on the face of the design, one on the back of the design for ingredients list and soap weight, etc.
� Ingredient list and soap bar weight field may be taken out if these fields are not needed.

Colors Available:

There are two colors available � moss green and dark cranberry on a white background.

How to Use the Design:

Certain elements of the design are customizable. After downloading designs, open the file in Microsoft Publisher. If the design opens and is too small to edit, click the arrow on the zoom box and zoom in 100% to edit.

The designs are already complete so the only thing needed to finish them is to change the info in the main label field with the name of the soap or company name and the ingredient list--then save and print.
