I bought the biggest one they had and my soap didn't fit in there!

anyone have any ideas what to do with it now?

Yiyeee how big are your soaps? wondering if there are window boxes that are better sized?

Packaging is being my biggest challenge right now too. Plus don't want to double my cost for something people will chuck.

My small soaps I can fit into my hubby's supply of baseball card team bags. If he asks-- the dog buried 'em. J/K

This seems to be an issue for all of us. I am hoping that we can come up with a good solution together!

Window boxes are too big. My soaps are about 1.5 x 2.5 x 3.5 or something.

Most of my soaps I package in those Kraft soap boxes, easily found on the web here, with sticky address labels on the front and back that I printed off  on the computer.

If the bar of soap is too large for a Kraft box, as most of my holiday soaps are, I use crystal cello bags from this website:  http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com, originally purchased for candle packaging.  I just put the soap in the bag, fold the bag over to the back, and seal it up with a sticky address label that I printed off of my computer.

For my cp soaps I recently switched from cigar bands (too much work and didn't like how they they get too loose and fall off as the soap shrinks) to the soap boxes. But, for my "spa" bars, which are a larger size than my regular bars, I wrap in a piece of fancy mulberry paper, just like I was making a cigar band, and then, going the other way I wrap a wide piece of ribbon around it and tie it in a knot on the front (angle cut the ends of the ribbon). I put my sticky label on the back (this particular one I make out of a full sheet label and cut with a straight cutter, same as I do for the soap boxes).

I think I used double sided tape for the mulberry paper, but you could use regular tape even since it's going to be covered by the ribbon and the label.

I use rubber cement. it's the only thing that will stick to the waxed paper I use to initially wrap my soap.
