Yves Rocher Makeup Calendar makes it to finals

European Carton Excellence Awards 2021
Yves Rocher's New Year Makeup Calendar

Pro Carton and ECMA have recently revealed the finalists for the European Carton Excellence Award 2021. Yves Rocher’s luxurious New Year makeup calendar, produced by Durero Packaging on Metsä Board paperboard, is one of the finalists. 

The attractive heptagonal pack of Yves Rocher’s New Year makeup calendar is made up of seven identical, linked carton board triangular cases, which each contain an individual make-up gift. The carton can be displayed in a number of ways and is engaging for consumers to interact with as it can be unfolded and shaped into a 7-petal pinwheel, a star, and even a caterpillar.  

The modular packaging is designed with the same shape repeated seven times in order to simplify the folding and gluing processes and reduce machine preparation time, making the pack less difficult and less costly to make.
