New Packaging - I Need Your Help!

Most of you know what my current packaging looks like.  If not, here's a peek:

I love the look of this but it's very time consuming so I'm trying to come up with some other options.  Here's the first one:

It's very similar but the bottom isn't covered.  There's also a bit less soap showing at the top since the paper doesn't fold down as far now that the bottom inch is gone.
Another option is this one:

This one is a just a band of paper with the same label and ribbon.  (Please ignore the label on this one; it printed incorrectly so I decided to use it as my trial.)  This is the easiest and it uses the least amount of paper.  I like this option for those reasons but it seems odd to me since I'm so used to seeing my soaps wrapped with the front folded down.

Please comment and let me know what you think!  Which option would you prefer?  Or maybe something else that I haven't thought of?

I would vote for the first option. I couldn't tell the difference between that one and the original until you pointed it out. However, you're trying reduce the amount of work.I guess it depends what you want the most - keep the very nice packaging or get a bit more dull and save time.

The first is indeed best. But it's the wrap that makes it cool, not that the bottom is covered. So use the second one but get a paper trimmer and take the inch off the bottom first then.

The third one is too plain to me. I think a belly band style is common place.

I don't mind the 2nd option at all (the straight band) - may not be quite as original, but it still looks lovely and very professional. And I like that it uses less paper / waste, and that it saves you some time.
