Simple Slab Mold Lining

Slab mold lining doesn’t have to be a pain in the butt. There is a simple no cutting, no measuring way to do it with freezer paper. Once you get the hang of it, you can get the lining down to about 3 mins a mold. When you’re making 10 molds worth of soap, anything that saves you time can come in handy. (This mold is from Cedar Mt. Crafts on Etsy)

 

Step one: Put your slab mold on a big flat surface. I use my kitchen table.

Step Two: Lay your freezer paper over the slab mold, shiny side down.

Use your thumb to make an indent of the inside ridge of the mold, until you see your shape.

Step Three: Move the mold, fold the paper sharply on the lines made by the shape. 

Following each line the length of the paper.

Step Four: Bring each corner together, making joined corner and then tape fold and tape down.

You will end up with a box type shape, don’t worry if it isn’t pretty. Just make sure you folded on the lines.

Step Five: Drop that box into your mold:

If you want you can cut off the excess length so it is a little prettier and easier to work with, not a requirement.

Step Six: Slit the paper corners down to the edge of the mold.

Step Seven: Fold the flaps over and tape down unto the sides
(Note: Make sure to push the paper all the way down into the mold and not lift up as you tape)

Step Eight: Take a credit/hard card and push the edges down into the mold for extra crisp edges.

Voila, easy peasy slab mold lining with freezer paper.

Maternity Leave is Here!

Instead of logos and labels, my next few months will be spent preparing for and enjoying the birth of my first child…and all the sleepless nights thereafter.

I am currently not accepting new projects as I am taking an extended maternity leave until early Spring of 2017. When I return, I will streamline my design a little bit; only taking one client at a time and passionately working on their individual project.

If you would like a consultation, or to be placed on my waiting list please contact me.

Freebie No 3: Soap/Product Batch Log

Did you know you needed to keep a batch of every soap or product you make? Its standard GMP (good manufacturing processes) for all soap/bath product makers.

I could not find the form I needed online anywhere, so I decided to make it. I hope it helps you as well.

When printing note the margins, you will need to flip the paper over so it correctly prints on the back. This file is set up for three ring binders.

Enjoy!

Freebie Label No. 2: Modern Happy Floral

Here is a cute, simple to use, free floral label. I have included both front and back options. I actually made a word template for you guys, which is a rarity for my adobe-loving self :)! It measures 2″x4″ (5.08cmx10.16cm) and fits perfectly on Avery labels or generic labels from amazon.

I have already created text boxes and set up the design as a background image for you in these templates. All you have to do is add your info, pick and font and color and print :). You can add additional text boxes if you choose.

Fonts used were Michael for the “Handcrafted Soap & Ingredients” and I used Super Clarendon for my example text.

Enjoy 🙂
