Opening Hadassim Container on Yom Tov

What if someone forgot to open their plastic containing aravos or hadashim, and its yom tov? What to do?

Answer:

The container can be torn open with a knife. It should not be opened in a manner that permits it to be re-used later (a cut along the top), but rather cut in a way that destroys the container (for example, by cutting the bag along its length), so that it cannot be re-used.

It is forbidden to tie the hadassim with the other minim on Yom Tov, but if koshiklech were prepared before, the hadassim can be placed inside on Yom Tov.
