Cupcake Wrappers & Dish Soap Aprons

I just stumbled across another fabulous Blog and have spent far too much time reading all of their past posts.

It’s called Whip Up and is focused on sharing artsy & crafty ideas and tutorials. The also have a forum which looks like it is forming into something good.

Check out this article about making aprons for your dish soap bottle. It’s very cute and looks easy.

Then I found (while totally playing hooky from doing anything remotely business related):

Fancy Cupcake wrappers – How cool would these be for cupcake bath bombs?

They are $1 each – but considering that Bath Bombs are so inexpensive to make it seems that this would even out the cost.

Remember to look at other packaging ideas – not just those items that are sold specifically as soap or toiletry product packaging! Packaging is often the only thing that will set your product apart from others on the shelves.
