Dressed and Ready for Etsy

Remember the Lavender and Amber soap I did a few weeks ago?  I knew it was going to darken due to the fragrance, and here are the bars now after the full cure.  They are indeed dark, but it suits the fragrance perfectly  I think they ended up with an interesting and exotic look.
The shaving soap is also fully cured.  I love the round bars but they prove to be challenging to package because I love using pretty coordinating paper.  So I think I landed on a good idea for them and I like the rustic look.  It seems I'm never fully satisfied with my packaging and am always trying new ideas, but I do like this for the round bars.  How do you do your packaging?  To me it's as much fun as making the soap because it's the final touch that gives the soap it's "personality".  

How do you do your packaging - simple or more decorative?  I enjoy getting the perspective of others  :)
