Thank you for this tutorial.  I am not sure it will work for my soaps, but I shall give it a try.  Do you have any sideways band tutorials??  I have floofy tops, sometimes with sparkles and stuff.  Any tips?

Thank you for this tutorial.  I am not sure it will work for my soaps, but I shall give it a try.  Do you have any sideways band tutorials??  I have floofy tops, sometimes with sparkles and stuff.  Any tips?



I just used this tutorial to make sideways bands... basically you just follow the same instructions and adjust the columns to be around 1" or so wide. A sideways strip to wrap around my bar with a little overlap was about 7 1/2" long, and I wanted my band to be around 1" wide.

I cut a strip of paper and wrapped it around sideways on my soap. I used a pencil to mark where the top/sides/etc. is just like the tutorial says to. I then just followed the tutorial and did the same thing in Word - I looked at my marked up scrap strip to determine how far down to go, where to put my logo, etc. I of course turned my strip 90 degrees to measure.

The only difference with making my bands sideways as opposed to top-bottom like the tutorial is that I placed my logo at a 90 degree angle on the strip. To do that, I opened up my logo that I created in Photoshop and rotated it 90 degrees. Then I pasted it into my column/strip and moved it around until it fit between the measurements that I marked on my scrap strip.

So basically just follow this tutorial as it says, (you'll be doing your strip sideways, though) and set it up the same in Word... the only difference is you need to turn your logo 90 degrees so it goes across the band in the right place. If you right click on your logo image when you paste it into Word and choose "Word Wrap -> Tight" you can then move it around easier. When you print, slice the strips apart and wrap yours sideways instead of top-bottom Smiley

If you use a stamp for your logo instead of a digital image, it would be just like the tutorial. After you cut your strips apart to go sideways, you can just stamp your logo in the right place.



Thank you for the tutorial! Smiley
