Packing Tips For Do-It-Yourselfers

UPS has some tips for people packing breakable holiday gifts:

—Start with a new box.

—Fill partway with foam packing peanuts.

—Place a piece of corrugated cardboard on top of the foam peanuts.

—Wrap the gift items in bubble wrap. Place them in a snug layer on top of the cardboard platform. There shouldn't be too much give or extra space.

—Place another piece of corrugated cardboard on top of that.

—Add more packing peanuts a little higher than the brim.

—Close the box and use packing tape on all the seams.

UPS packed just such a box recently in the lab and had his crew drop it repeatedly from the drop tester. The ornaments and snow globe he packed inside survived perfectly.
