Papered Soap

I have to get back into the swing of papering everything in my house. So today, while cleaning I noticed these bars of soap in the bathroom. If they do not say paper me, I am not sure what does. We have all seen the soap bars that have packaged in pretty paper at the cute boutiques. Well , my soaps are as good as any other soaps, they deserve a little papering!

I must say this is a simple paper project that can be done in minutes. I think it would make a cute hostess gift. My soaps needed a little birdie to make the project just a little more, let's say special!
I am looking forward to visiting all my favorite sights tonight. I am having blog withdrawals!!!

These turned out really cute! I've done the candy bars before, but had not thought of soap. And love those little hand towels folded on the shelf under the soap! Did you make those?

I made little yoyos and placed them on the hand towels. I wanted to wrap a little ribbon around the towels and glue tht yoyos to the ribbon. I never got around to it. Ah, another unfinished project! I am going to finish them and I will post it next week. That way I have to do it!

Your soaps turned out really cute! Any hostess would love them...I would never want to unwrap them! We sure do have a lot in common! Love your yo-yo towels! I have my yo-yo project all pieced...I think I like it. I will post a photo when it's done and see what everyone else thinks. Have a great night!
