Don’t be frightened having to pack your fragile items yourself. Its easy if you have the right knowledge and materials.


strong Cardboard carton small or medium

Packaging paper sheets

2 inch packing tape

Optional bubble wrap.

First, make up the cardboard box taping the bottom seam where the two flaps meet as well as the edges.

Next crush up some paper and put it in the bottom of the box for cushioning

next roll your glasses in 2 pieces of packing paper tucking in one end into the glass and the other up from the base.

Stack upright in the box as shown in the picture.

Any gaps once finished fill with crushed up paper.

Anything very fragile use a sheet of bubble wrap in between the two pieces of packing paper.

Use crushed paper, pillow, blanket or something soft at the top of the box. Make sure its all nice and tight.

Close box, tape up the seams and the edges with 2 inch tape.

Your done.

Cheers and happy packing
