Get your packaging plastick 

get your packaging plastic

Your need to visit  the packaging stores in your location to search for the packaging bottle or container that will be suitable for what you want to package. You might also order them online. In my case i chose the above plastic container because it is handy, cheaper, beautiful and easy to seal. Here in Nigeria in this 2023, I got that plastic for N50 for one. That is the wholesale price for the plastic. The plastic is transparent and good for small business packaging for snacks and other food items. 

add your items

With your measurement scoop, add your kuli kuli inside the plastic container. Remember you should always have standard measurement for all your products. In my case. I used spoon to transfer the items inside the packaging plastic. 

After you have done the transfer, the next thing is to tightly cover the container. 

Paste your paper sticker label on your product

You would have gone to printers to design your label/brand and print it on a paper sticker. I advice you make small or medium size designs. Avoid printing large label as this might attract more cost and expenses. Paste the label on your packaging plastic.

Get your nylon for sealing 

measure plastic

The next step will be to get the nylon you will use to seal up the container. Make sure the nylon is not too thick nor too thin. In my case I used an everyday glass transparent nylon which most businesses use for packaging. You  will get such nylon in the packaging shops in your location. Measure the circumference of the cover of the plastic, add extra quarter inch, this will be the provision for sealing up the ends with the impulse sealer. Also get the length of the plastic and and extra one and half inches to it. This will be the provision for sealing with the hot gun sealer.

In my case, the circumference of the cover was 10.5 inches so after adding a quarter inch, the width I will cut in the nylon will be 10 inches and 3 quarter. The length of my plastic bottle was 2.5 inches, after adding extra 1.5 inches, the length I will cut in the nylon will be 4 inches.

measure the nylon

Transfer the the measurement to your nylon. Cut out the measured nylon with your pair of scissors. 

fold nylon

Fold the nylon into two equal part then seal the end with your impulse sealer. If you do not have impulse sealer, you do not need to worry, just use your candle to do the sealing. Click here to see my tutorial on how to seal with candle.

Start sealing with the hot gun sealer

wear nylon on product

Wear the sealed nylon on the product and position it well. Allow the product to be at the center of the nylon.

seal top

Get your hot gun sealer, turn it on and turn it to the lower or the higher heating degree. As for me I like using the higher heating degree. While holding the bottle just like it is displayed in the picture above, seal the top part of the plastic first. While sealing, you have to make sure you are turning the plastic round  so that the hot gun sealer will not melt any part of the plastic and this sealing should not take more than 5 seconds. 

seal down

After sealing the top, you position the bottom upward and seal it too in few seconds just like you did when sealing the top.

seal middle

Finally, you seal the middle part and make sure you keep turning the container as you are sealing  to avoid melting.

The finished product


Once you followed all the processes accurately, I assure you that your final product will be a beautiful one just like the one above. At this stage you can go ahead to distribute, market, export of even sell the products.
