|Punched for soap visibility|
|Wrapped around the bar|
I tried to see if tissue paper could be used in a punch first. Unfortunately, it just tore in about half of the area that was supposed to be cut. So I turned to kraft paper. It maintains that rustic feel that I am looking for. Using a punch on the top edge does make it take longer to wrap, but I think that attention to detail is important. After all it really does look cute. It helps that I can punch multiple pieces at the same time.

So what do you think? I am pleased so far. It only takes me about 30 seconds to wrap a bar. With everything being simple it makes things much easier. I think that I will stay with this design for the time being. Of course, as always, as a woman I reserve the right to change my mind. ;)
Here are my three varieties with the differences being minor, but effective.
