Dedicating a week to designs

New Designs

This week I am spending time redesigning some packaging. 

Due to popular demand and the increase in soap sales I have to redesign my soap wrapping.
 I loved printing my own paper but a heavy work load has forced me to rethink as its is so time consuming.

I have spent hours creating wrappers, bands and gift cards from scratch. I am not the most patient of people using photo shop and my design program but finally they ready.

Take a little peek....
