Flemish translation:Niet inpakken alstublieft.
Explanation:
In a shop if you want to take your purchases home unpacked, you could ask: Niet inpakken, alstublieft.

If the sentence is a warning in a manual, for instance to not to pack something as it could be damaged, you should write:
Niet verpakken.

There is also a slight difference between inpakken and verpakken, and it depends on your context which one you'll have to choose.

HTH,
Carla
