Gift Boxes and Bows


I have been trying out different ways of decorating my gift boxed soaps with ribbon. Chiffon is my favourite choice as it is so pretty and makes me think of exciting things like bridesmaids dresses . I made up a recent order destined for the United States using two colours of chiffon, in colours complimentary to the soaps inside the boxes. There were two combinations, Rose and Gold, and Duck Egg and Copper. I only managed a photo of the Duck Egg gift box -then my camera ran out of battery. I didnt have time to check with anyone as to how they looked as they had to go straight into their wrapping and off to the post office, so I just hope their new owner approves once they arrive! I thought they looked cute, but then I am all fingers and thumbs with gift boxes. I need some lessons from my friend Corrie at Lomond Soap - she is the packaging queen for sure!

Tres Cute! I think it looks wonderful against the soap that you have in the box. Best of luck with that!
