For my Blogtober 2016 Day 26 post (just 5 more to go – hurrah!!) I thought I’d take photographs of the process and share it with you.

  1. Take a (fully cured & bevelled) bar of soap, a co-ordinating facecloth and a wooden soap stand:

3.  Fold one third of the length over, and open up the end to create a little pocket:

4. Fold the other half of the facecloth over into the pocket:

7.  Take a longish piece of string, ribbon or raffia – I use raffia – and place it under the the facecloth (apologies for the quality of the photo here):

12.  Place the set, face down, on a large square of cellophane, bring up opposing sides and roll over and secure, as if wrapping a gift:

Step 13:  Fold up the other two sides – again just like wrapping a gift:

14.  Cellophane wrapped gift set:

15.  Take a length of co-ordinating ribbon and labels – I have two labels – one for the soap name and one for the ingredients:

Step 15
Step 15
16. Using sticky tape, stick the ribbon in FACE DOWN on the top right corner of the set, and thread on the labels:

Step 16

17. Tie a knot in the ribbon – this makes it much easier to create a half decent bow:
