soap art with free printables

I made these really cute neighbor gifts for Christmas, and I'm still getting some questions on them, so I decided to post about them again with some updates!

You can make your own, but you will need transparency sheets, and a laser printer. Or you can take it to get it printed somewhere like FedEx.

Here is the Clean Hands artwork that I created for my Christmas gifts:
  • Click the image and save it on your computer.
  • Then open it up using www.picnik.com
  • Click on the "Create" tab at the top, then click "Text"
  • Click the text box at the upper left, above the options for fonts. Type in the name that you want to use to personalize your soap and click 'add' (you may have to change the color to black in order to see your text)
  • Then you can play with the fonts and sizing and pick what you like best. {i used the font called Pupcat for mine here}

  • After you are done, then click on the Save and Share tab at the top.
    I always save at the highest quality out of principle.
  • Then, to print, I plugged the jpeg into a word document because I wanted to fit a bunch on one sheet, but do whatever you need to do. The picture should be about 2.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches long in order to fit in the same kind of soap bottle that I used.
Same idea for this frame (which is just a digital scrapbooking frame by Summer Driggs), just plug in an initial using Picnik:


Like this example:

OR, if you just want to print it out without personalizing, here is the image for that:
{it should be good for an 8x10, even better if it's smaller than that because that is what it was made for}

That's it! Let me know if you have any questions! Happy Soap-making :)

{if you use these images, please use for personal use & gifting only! No selling!}

  1. Thanks for the printables. I'm going to frame the "soap" printable and hang it in my bathroom. The frame, I'm going to use with my granddaughter's initial. I started a little initial collection for her (like all of Ali Edwards' "A"'s) and I think she will like this - not too fancy (she's a tomboy), not too plain. Thanks again

  5. Can I get the Psalms 24:4 print as a pdf instead of a jpeg? I am not having good luck getting good quality as a jpeg and I was just using it as a 4x6.
