This invention relates to improvements in containers for toothpicks. The object of the invention is to provide a container for toothpicks in the form of a paper envelope adapted to hold a suitable number of toothpicks and aifording space for advertising or like matter to be rlnted on the envelope. The envelopes wit toothpicks therein may be given away as souvenirs, for advertising pur- 19 poses and as novelties.
In the drawing accompanying this specification Fi 1 is a view of a aper blank from whic the envelope is ma c.
Fig. 2 is a sectional view showing the manner in which the blank is folded.
Fi 3 is a face view of the completed enve opes containing the toothpicks.
Referring to the drawing the envelope 1s made from a paper blank cut and scored as shown in Figure 1 and comprising a relatively narrow long rectangularly formed blank 4 scored as at 5 to provide a closing flap 6.
Adjacent the flap 6 the blank forms a back portion 7 having a length equal to the full length of the completed envelope. To both sides of the back there are provided side closing wings 8, 8 adapted to be folded along the scored ines 9, 9.
Continuing lengthwise of the blank there is formed a front portion 10 adjacent the back 7 and ada ted to be folded parallel to the back along t e scored line 11. The front 10 has a slit 12 for receiving the end of the closing flap 6.
The other end of the blank is scored as at 13 and 14 to form a front and a back pocket portion 15 and 16 respectively. Along the scored line 14 the blank is provided with perforations 17 serving as entrances for the toothpicks, 18 into the envelope itself.
The envelope is folded as shown in Figure 2. The front 10 is bent at 11 back upon the back 7. The front pocket portion 15 is 4 bent at 13 downwardly and inwardly back upon the front 10 and the portion 16 is bent in the reverse direction at 14 to extend up- ;vardly. The portions 15 and 16 therefore lie within the envelope and forms a pocket 80 which is open at the top, while the perforafront and against those side HElSSUED tions 17 are at the bottom of said pocket. The edge 25 of the pocket member 16 is pasted against the back 7 along the line 5.
The wings 8 are pasted and folded upon the front 10 and pasted down against said ortions 19 or edges of the rear pocket portions 16 which pro ect above the line 13, all as clearly shown. The result is an envelope havin a pocket 20, see Fig. 2, of less depth t an the envelope and in which the toothpicks may be conveniently inserted in a manner so that their one ends are exposed as seen in Figure 3. By reason of the fact that the wlngs 8 are pasted to the edges 19 of the $5 part 16 and the latter pasted to the back 7 at 25 the only opening to appear is that leading to the pocket 20. The invention provides a handy, convenlent and sanitary container or package for 7 toothpicks. It 1s readily manufactured at a low cost.
I claim 1. As a new article of manufacture, an envelope of the character described made from a single integral pa er blank in the form of a substantially, ong narrow rectangle weakened at a plurality of parallel transverse lines and bent on said lines to form an envelope having a pocket at its upper entrance portion between the back and front of the envelope said pocket being of less depth than the envelope and being provided at its bottom with a plurality of spaced erforations as and for t e purposes set fort 2.
