A method of making boxes from double blanks each cut and creased to form two box blanks having their box-bottom forming parts at opposite sides of the double blank; each box blank being cut and creased to form hingedly connected side and end walls connected in endto-end series; bottom sections foldably joining the respective walls, two of the bottom sections each having a flap extension connected to an end thereof by a diagonal crease extending toward an inner corner of such section, the walls of each box blank being opposite corresponding walls of the other box blank of the double blank: each wall and its associated sections and extensions constituting a wall assembly; said method comprising folding said extensions on the lower faces of sections to which they are respectively joined; folding the respective bottom sections flat upon the upper faces of their connected walls respectively, thereby to upwardly expose the flap extensions; folding each assembly at the ends of the series upon the assembly adjacent thereto, to cause said flap extensions to engage respective cooperating areas of the adja-.

cent assembly respectively; adhering said flap extensions to said areas; and adhesively hingedly connecting the free end edges of the series.

2. A method of making boxes from box blanks cut and creased to form four walls connected in end-to-end series; bottom sections foldably joining the respective walls, two of the bottom sections each having a flap extension connected to an end thereof by a diagonal crease near and extending toward an adjacent inner corner of such section, said corners being non adjacent to each other; each wall and its associated section and extension constituting a wall assembly; said method comprising folding said extensions and the respective bottom sections so that said sections are flat upon the upper faces of their connected walls respectively and the extensions are upwardly exposed and superposed fiat on the exposed faces of their connected sections; folding each assembly at the ends of the series upon the assembly aZdJacent thereto, to cause said flap extensions to engage cooperating areas of the adjacent assembly; adhering said flap extensions to said areas respectively; and connecting the free end edges of the series.

3. A double blank cut and creased to form two box blanks, each box blank being cut and creased to form hingedly; connected side and end walls connected in end-to-end series and the inner upper-edge-forming edge of each end wall being provided with a flap foldably joined thereto and extending to a corresponding similar flap of the other box blank; the inner side edge of one side wall section only of each box blank having a lid section having a tuck flap opposite, and extending to, a side wall of the other boxblank.

4.A method of making a double flat-folded box fronf a double blank cut and creased to form two box blanks connected by an axial weakened line and having marginal bottom forming parts; each box blank having hingedly series connected side and end walls; atriangular andarectangular bottom section joining said end walls; side bottom sections joining the side walls, the side section next the triangular section being wider than the other side section and having a free-comer cutout next to the rectangular section, the bottom sections at the ends of the series each having an extension connected to the inner end thereof by a diagonal crease extending toward an inner corner of such section; each wall and its associated sections and, extensions constituting an assembly; said method comprising disposing said extensions and the bottom sections so that said sections are flat upon the inner faces of their connected walls, and the extensions -flat upon their respective sections; disposing each assembly at the ends of the series upon the assembly adjacent thereto and adhering said extensions to adjacent sections; and connecting the free ends of the series; said box blanks being separable along said line and erectable to box form with said rectangular section over both of said side bottom sections, and said wider section between the triangular section and the other side section.

5. A double fiat-folded box made from a double blank cut and creased to form two box blanks connected by anaxial weakened line and having marginal bottom forming parts; each box blank having hingedly series connected side and end walls; a triangular and a rectangular bottom section Joining said end walls: side bottom sections joining the side walls, the side section next the triangular section being wider than the other side section and having a free-comer cut-out next to the rectangular section, the bottom sections at the ends of the series each having an extension connected to the inner end thereof by a diagonal crease extending toward an inner corner of such section; each wall and its associated section and extensions constituting an assembly; said extensions and the bottom sections being so disposed that said sections are flat upon the inner faces of their connected walls, and the extensions flat upon their respective sections; each assembly at the ends of the series being disposed flat upon the assembly adjacent thereto with said extensions adhered to adjacent sections; the free ends of the series being connected; said box blanks being separable along said line and erectable to box form with said rectangular section over both side sections, and said wider section between the triangular section and the other side section.

6. A method of making boxes from box blanks cut and creased to form walls connected in series; bottom sections foldably joining the respective walls, certain of the bottom sections each having a flap extension connected to an end thereof by a diagonal crease; each wall and its associated section and extension constituting a wall assembly; said method comprising folding the respective bottom sections and ,extensions so that said sections are flat upon the faces of their con nected walls respectively with the extension upwardly exposed and superposed fiat upon the upper face of its =connected section; folding assemblies upon adjacent assemblies, and adhering said flap extensions to areas of the assembly folded thereupon;

'I. A double blank cut and creased to form two box blanks, each box blank being cut and creased to form hingedly connected opposite side and end walls; this inner upper-edge-forming edge of each intermediate wall being provided with a flap foldably joined thereto and extending to a flap of the other box blank; the inner side edge of one side wall section only of each box blank having a lid section having a tuck flap extending substantially to the other box-blank.

8. A box blank cut and creased to form a pair of side walls and a pair of end walls, the side and end walls'being alternately foldably connected in end-to-end series, a side bottom section foldably connected to each side wall and an end bottom section foldably connected to each end wall, one of said end bottom sections having a foldable glue flap forming an extension at one side thereof, said extension projecting beyond the outermost free portion of said section, one of said side bottom sections having a foldable glue flap forming an extension at one end thereof and projecting beyond the free side thereof, said glue flaps being joined to their respective connected sections by crease lines extending in opposite directions, said sections having glue flaps thereon being nonaltemately arranged in said end-to-end series of said blank, and id other side bottom section having a reduced free end and being formed to extend beyond one half the width of the bottom of the box when the box is formed, said reduced free end overlapping the first named side bottom section and extending between said first named side bottom section and its foldably connected glue flap.

,9. A box formed from a single blank, said blank being cut and creased to form a pair of side walls and a pair of end walls, and bottom sections foldably connected to each wall, one of said bottom sections being an end bottom section and having a glue flap thereon forming an extension at one side thereof, another of saidbottom sections being a side bottom section and having a glue flap thereon forming an extension of one end thereof, the remaining side bottom section having a reduced free end and having a width greater than half the width of the box in open or extended position; said box when formed having one end bottom section glued to the adjacent side bottom section by the glue flap on the former, and having the other side bottom section glued to the remaining end bottom section by the glue flap on the last mentioned side bottom section, said first named glue flap being disposed between the two side bottom sections and assuming a folded and concealed position between them, said second named glue flap being disposed between the lowermost side bottom section and the other end bottom section and assuming a folded and concealed position between them, the lowermost side bottom section having one end extending between the first named glue flap and its connected section and the uppermost side bottom section having the opposite end thereof extending between the second named glue flap and its connected section, whereby the box bottom sections will, even if said flaps become released, remain in operative position by reason of the interlocking action resulting from the confining between the glue flaps and the respective bottom sections to which said flaps are foldably connected, of the respective free ends of said side bottom sections.
