Remember that when you create your packaging, you must keep in mind your consumer. Think about every step they go through, and if you do need a tightly sealed box / packaging for security or hygiene purposes, then try to find a way to make it easy for someone to open with scissors.
Your customers might get frustrated at your product before they start using it! You want your customer to love you when they see the packaging and when they open it to reveal your great product!
