which may be integral with the blank or may be entirely separate therefrom and adjustable with respect to the container. The band normally holds the container in closed position but may be moved to a position outside the hinge line of a portion of the top of the container which forms a cover when access is desired to the contents of the receptacle.

The invention also consists in certain new and original features of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter set forth and claimed.

Although the novel features which are believed to be characteristic of this invention will be particularly pointed out in the claims appended hereto, the invention itself, as to its objects and advantages, and the manner in which it may be carried out, may be better understood by referring to the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings forming apart thereof, in which Fig. 1 represents a blank from which the container is formed, the continuous lines representing cuts and the dot-and-dash lines representing scores;

Fig. 2 is a perspective of this container closed;

Fig. 3 illustrates the assembly of this container;

Fig. 4 represents the container closed but with the band positioned to allow raising of the cover; and

Fig. 5 illustrates the container opened with the band removed for purposes of illustration.

In the following description and in the claims, various details will be identified by specific names for convenience, but they are intended to be as generic in their application as the art will permit.

Like reference characters denote like parts in the several figures of the drawings.

In the drawings accompanying and forming part of this specification, certain specific disclosure of the invention is made for purposes of explanation, but it will be understood that the details may be modified in various respects with out departure from the broad aspect of the intom wall 50, side walls .5! and end walls 54 and.

- articles.

56. Side walls 5| have flaps 52 and 53 secured thereto and end wall 54 has a liner 55 secured thereto. End wall 56 has projections I56 secured thereto. as indicated.

Secured to end wall 58 is top wall 51 having side 6 Walls 58 secured thereto. Secured to top wall 51 is cover wall 59 having side walls 60 which are 'cut diagonally, as shown. Side walls 60 have flaps SI and cover wall 59 has end wall 62 secured thereto which in turn has a liner 63. End wall 10 62 and liner 63 have finger notches 64 out therefrom, as indicated.

Either wall 54 or 55, or both, are preferably coated with glue, as indicated, and the flaps 53 are secured to end wall 54 and liner 55 in a 15 manner similar to the corresponding parts described above. In the same way flaps 6| are secured to end wall 62 andliner 53.

The rest of the box is assembled very quickly and easily by folding the cover 59 and top wall 20 51 over the bottom wall 50, as indicated, with the flaps 58 foldedinside of walls 5|, as indicated...

after which the band 65 is placed in the position shown in Fig. 4. This band may be formed of paper and may be made of a single strip whose 25 ends are pasted together at 66. The band preferably fits snugly over the body of the box, indicated by 10 and illustrated in Fig. 4. This permits the cover, indicated by H, to be raised to give access to the box. If desired, the band 30 65 may he slid over the cover H, as indicated in Fig. 2, to prevent accidental opening of the cover during shipment. The downwardly extending projections I56 prevent the band 65 from slipping Ofi.- 35 It will be noted that the end wall 54 is shortened to provide easier access to the interior of the box, making this box particularly suitable for such articles as writing paper and handkerchiefs. Thus, types of containers are provided, the 40 bodies of which are held together preferably by a single band of material. The covers are formed integral with a side wall of the box and are easily opened to give access to the interior of the box. This type of'container' is well adapted to 45 certain kinds of merchandise which will occur to those skilled in the art, for example, handkerchiefs, writing paper and carbon paper for typewriters, etc. It will be understood, however, that these containers may be used for many other 0 While certain novelfeatures of the invention have'been disclosed and are pointed out in the annexed claims, it will be understood that various omissions,- substitutions and changes may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit oi the invention.
