On Assembling Soap Boxes

Beautiful handcrafted soap? ✔ Check. A schedule of craft shows, list of farmers’ markets, or growing Etsy shop? ✔ Check. Equally lovely packaging to go with your equally lovely soaps? Uh-oh! Many crafters may not realize it, but the way products are packaged influence a consumer to buy just as much at the actual products themselves. These soap boxes, made from sturdy cardboard, are elegant enough on their own or easy enough to embellish with ribbon or crinkle paper.

Sturdy and compact, the Sleeve and Tray Boxes are the perfect soapy packaging.

Each box measures 3 1/4″ long, 2 3/8″ across and is 1 1/4″ deep, and has a small oval cut out so the actual soap can be smelled and viewed without opening the box.  Boxes arrive in two pieces — the main box and the slide sleeve. Assembling these little guys is easy. Here is a quick Instagram video demonstrating how:

    How do you recommend storing CP soap?

      Hi Sabrina!

      After your soap has been unmolded and cut, letting it cure for 4-6 weeks is recommended. That will create a milder bar that lasts longer in the shower.

      You’ll want to store it in a dry place. If the bars are stored in a humid area, you can get dreaded orange spots (DOS) or rancidity. Also, keep them out of direct sunlight so those colors don’t fade.

      After it has cured, you can leave it in the open or wrap it. I’ll include a blog post about some fun packaging ideas. :)
