How to Package Round Soap Using Coffee Filters

Coffee filters make packaging round soap super simple and the outcome is very aesthetically pleasing. You can find natural Kraft-colored coffee filters or white coffee filters.

These are some soaps that Benjamin and I made to donate for a local fundraiser. Benjamin designed the labels. If you need label help, check out his website Method Creation.

    Thanks so much. A link to where I can buy those kind of coffee filters would be awesome. Not Amazon though – they won’t ship to Australian’s any more and we don’t have that kind of coffee filter here in Australia.

    Thanks so much.

      Even easier – lay your filter on top of a roll of duct tape and press the soap down through the hole – it wraps the sides up for you and holds them in place while you put on your sticker.

      Fits perfectly

    I also wanted to let you know that the link to Method Creation is broken. Is there a working link?

    GREAT IDEA!!!!! Thanks for sharing!!!! “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Coco Chanel

    What about oval bars? Any suggestions for that. I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of something besides a box.

    I really don’t like to make and package round soaps but you’ve inspired me to make some now. You always make it look sooo easy.

    Hi Amanda. Great tutorial! I think the coffee filter is the best packaging for round soaps. To get a more snug fit I place my coffee filter on the inside of a packing or a masking tape roll, then my soap. It frees my other hand and I get wrap more tight 🙂

    I use coffee filters to package my round facial soaps. No one picks up on the fact that they are filters. Everyone is just impressed at the cool packaging. Lol

    I love this method. Makes my round soaps look so much nicer. It even works on oval bars.

    I use coffee filters now but the first round soap I ever made I packaged in a “box” made from card stock. It was labor intensive but fun to do. I don’t have a pic of the finished product but I’ll Email a PDF file to share how it’s done.

    For shaving soaps, I trim the coffee filter back a bit before wrapping them. Then I drop them into a short fat bowl (white or black) I found at the Dollar Store. Cute!

    FOR TRAVEL SOAP ~ 3 oz. Low Profile Plastic Jar & Top

    For Rose Soaps or any round soap with a high dome I use a 3″ X 3″ X 2″ White High Gloss Tuck Top Gift Box from Paper Mart.

    Thank you Amanda, it is great idea, however, in Europe are mostly used other types of coffee-filter. I checked on internet and I order for my round soaps 🙂 All the best and best regards from Slovakia.
    Thank you for posting your experience and great ideas. I made cocoa-coffee salt bars today 🙂 Sona
