A wrapper formed of an imperforate non- 5o alternately set so that when the package is folded metallic thin foldable one-piece web-like body, the tongues of one side of the package will register one side edge of said web being formed centrally with the grooves on the other side thereof. The with an extension, the other side edge of said tongues are preferably made to enter between two web extending in a single plane throughout, said respective tongues of the Other p in S a Way Web having finished end edges, each end edge con- 55 sisting of alternately disposed completely open notches and tongues, the tongues and notches of one end edge being alternately disposed with respect to the tongues and notches of the other end edge, the tongues of one end edge extending through the notches of and bearing against the inner face of said web leading from the other end edge and providing a sole means for connecting the ends of the web together for retaining the web in wrapping position.
2. A wrapper formed of an imperforate nonmetallic thin foldable one-piece web-like body of oblong contour, said web having one of its side edges formed centrally with an exten sion and its other side edge extending in a single plane throughout, said web provided with two spaced pairs of transverse scores, the scores of each pair being arranged in parallel spaced relation, the portion of the web between each pair of scores being of the same width, each pair of scores being located between the transverse median and one end of the web, the part of said web between the scores of each pair of scores forming the side walls of a package when the web is folded, that part of said web between the inner scores of said pairs of scores providing the bottom of a package when the web is folded, the parts of the web between the outer scores of the pair of scores and the ends of the web forming a pair of oppositely foldable front closure flaps for a package when the web is folded, each of said flaps having a finished outer end edge formed with one or more open notches and one or more tongues, the notches and tongues of the outer end edges of said flaps ooacting with each other and the tongues of the outer end edges of one flap coacting with the inner face of the other flap for detachably connecting said flaps together to close the front of a package.
