The BTS Meal packaging is too precious to throw away—here are 12 nifty ways to preserve it

By Hannah Mallorca Published Jun 22, 2021 4:36 pm

Consider yourself lucky if you had the chance to get the limited-edition BTS Meal at McDonald’s. While it’s true that it’s just nuggets and fries, it’s something that you can add to your K-pop collection. Plus, you get to support BTS. 

The BTS Meal has been on everyone’s lips since its official launch in the Philippines last Friday, June 18. One of the highlights is the adorable purple packaging with the group’s logo and their well-loved “Borahae” (I purple you) slogan.

The packaging is too precious that it’s hard to throw it away. Of course, you can’t miss out on anything related to the seven boys. Take a cue from these creative ARMYs and transform your BTS Meal “trash” into treasure.

1. Make a fashion statement
