Quick holiday gift to make

Rustic wrap label for gift soap

Here's a quick, easy to throw together last minute holiday gift!

What you need:

1) Scented bar soap (I'm using Mom's request of lavender)
2) Kraft paper strips  (I actually used postal roll package paper)
3) A longer, narrow stamp with a repeating pattern
4) Coordinating ink
5) Stickles to embellish

What to do:

1) Cut Kraft paper strips to fit your soap, allowing for overlapping ends. My strips were about 2.25 x 6 inches. Test wrap one and trim down if necessary. Once you have your size set, cut out your remaining strips.
2) Ink up your stamp and apply to Kraft paper strips. My stamp was long enough that 1 impression covered the entire strip, so it went very quickly.
3) When the ink has dried, wrap the label around the soap, using adhesive to secure the overlapping edge.
4) Embellish with stickles
5) When labels are totally dried, finish with a bit of raffia and/or ribbon, set in a basket or box with a cute tag and your gift is ready to go!

My stamped detail with  Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink, Starry Night and Frosty Lace stickle accents.
