Country Soaps Challenge

     I need your help.  I want to be able to put my soap in a consignment shop BUT I can't have any of my contact information listed.  My labels have taken me over 3 years to develop.   I'm not a computer wiz and am self taught with what I do know.  Here's my challenge....You, my customers, are going to help me.  I need a creative way to cover up my contact info.
     According to the FDA since I make no claims on my soap it doesn't fall into the drug category.  So with that being said, the ingredients could be covered up and don't need to be listed.  I've always listed the ingredients out of kindness to my customers.  Because we don't know how many soaps were talking about at this time I need an idea to hide the information on the soaps that go to the consignment shop.  This will make it easier for me to just pull from my existing inventory. 
     This time of year I'm busy making soaps for the upcoming holiday season, so this is where YOU come in.  You'll need a box from my soap and come up with a creative way to cover my info.  I have fabric around here, scrapbook paper, ribbon and other various crafting items.  Please try not to make it complicated or me needing to buy outrageous supplies.  :)  The winner will receive $20.00 worth of product from me, your choice.  (you'll pay the shipping)  When you get your entry ready, please send me a picture so I can post it here on my blog and the voting will be done by fellow customers.  The winner will also have to reveal to me how or what they did. 
     So get cracking you have until July 20th to submit your entries!!! Keep in mind...would you buy this soap looking like this?


  1. I guess I'll have to order some soap to enter then huh? :) But your sale doesn't start until July 12th?

  2. Take a dark brown ribbon the same width at the area where your contact information is and cover that area with the ribbon, put a few dabs of glue over that area so the ribbon won't move from it.

    OR, using Kraft Paper that matches your boxes, make a band around the box, again, glue where your contact information. You could decorate the kraft paper with a graphic (perhaps a goat picture?) or nice border.

    I have more suggestions. LOLOL!

  3. I've got my thinking cap on and working up sample ideas.
