Celestial Wrapping Inspiration

Handmade bath and beauty products make fantastic gifts. But sometimes, they need a special finishing touch. Patterned paper is perfect for decorating your creations.

One of our favorite ways to use it is wrapping bar soap. It works best for soap that doesn't have a textured top because you can get clean and even lines. If the bars have toppings like dried flowers or salt, be very gentle when wrapping them - you don't want to damage the decoration. We used clear tape to secure the wrap and finished each bar with decorative string.

Soap wrap is also perfect for decorating boxes. Below, we cut out strips and applied it to the White Soap Box with Window using double-sided tape.

If your candle jar is feeling a little lackluster, apply a band of patterned paper. Below, we used a blue pattern on the 4 oz. Lidded Glass Jar. We topped our candle with a dash of Blue EcoGlitter to match the pattern.

A moon pattern is a cute finishing touch for various projects. Below, we used it to decorate the Short 8 oz. Plastic Bail Jar.

Of course, you don't have to use the wrapping paper to decorate projects! We love them for product photography as well. They work best for close-up shots - simply place your product on the paper and get creative.
