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?


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.
