Clamshell Packaging Safety Tip

Clamshell Packaging Safety Tip is what we have for you today! Who doesn’t want to just toss whatever product it is when you have to try to figure out how to get it out of its clamshell packaging? You have your hand raised too? Well, I have a few quick and simple tips that will keep you from doing that. Ready? Here we go!

Supplies Needed

SHARP scissors

Your item

 

This is the area we are going to cut off from our packaging. Due to the strong seam here, it can be painful and sharp when cutting off the packaging of your product. That is why we have the Clamshell Packaging Safety Tip!

Take your sharp scissors slightly to the left of the side of the package as shown. Make sure there is space between your scissors and your hand. This will allow the cut packaging seam to seemlessly go between the scissors and your hand avoiding any injuries.

Here is a close up of what I am speaking about. I opened up my hand so you can see how it is just going straight through my hand out the back by my wrist as I cut.

Finished! The Clamshell Packaging Safety Tip is complete! I realize it is a simple and easy thing to do however the fact that it intrigued 2/3 of my favorite people (the other 1/3 was at work) I just had to share.

Don’t forget! When you have left over packaging the possibilities are endless!  Use them as a card, tag, emboss them, make shapes for future cards.. Seriously ENDLESS!

This is what you will end up with, the outer seam of the packaging and no cuts on your hands! Remember this around holiday time because that is where I always caused the most damage to my hands when opening packages for my kids or loved ones.
