4 claims. I

The present invention relates to the packaging of paper sheets, and more particularly to the packaging of disposable paper bibs.

The principal object of the invention is to provide a bib dispensing package from which the contents may be removed one sheet at a time.

Another object is to provide a bib dispensing box or carton which automatically remains closed, except during the time a sheet is being withdrawn therefrom.

A further object is to provide a bib dispensing carton which is so cheap to manufacture, that it may be economically discarded when once emptied.

An additional object is to provide a sheet dispensing carton, in which the edges of the sheets therein are maintained in feathered or slightly olf-set position with relation to each other, thereby facilitating manual removal of the sheets, one at a time.

Other objects will be apparent from the following description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying single sheet of drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of one of the bibs;

Figure 2 is an exaggerated sectional view taken substantially along the line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the bib containing carton, with dispensing door in open position;

Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view taken substantially along the line 4-4 of Fig. 3; and,

Figure 5 is a fragmentary perspective view of one corner of the carton, showing the door in closed position, the dotted lines indicating the open position thereof.

Like characters of reference designate like parts in those iigures of the drawings in which they occur.

In the drawings:

'I'he reference numeral I indicates, as a whole, a sheet of flexible material, for instance paper, which is cut to form a bib. The sheet is preferably substantially rectangular in vform and has a round aperture 2 adjacent one end, and is split along the line 3 so that it may be placed around a childs neck. 'I'he split 3 and the aperture 2 combine to form two meeting ends or tabs 4 and 5 which may be attached together by a suitable spring clip 6 to hold the bib in place on the childs neck.

The carton of the present invention, is designed to contain or hold a stack of the sheets or bibs I in a manner facilitating their removal therefrom.

The carton, per se, consists substantially of a rectangular box I0, preferably made of pasteboard, and preferably formed of two mating sections A and B. 'j

The lower or inner section A has a flat rectangular bottom II, vertical side walls I2 and I3, and vertical Vend walls I4 and I5. The top of the section is completely open so that a stack of the bibs I may be placed therein. The end wall I4 has a centrally located downwardly cut notch 30 whereby the free ends of the bibs may be manually grasped for withdrawal from the carton.

As a means for maintaining the free ends of the sheets I in feathered or bevelled relation to each other, a tubate sleeve I6 has itslower end rigidly mounted upon the upper surface of the bottom II of the box section A. The sleeve or neck I6 projects upwardly from the bottom I I at an angle which brings its free end nearer the end wall I4 than is its base. When the stack of bibs I are placed in the section A, the neck I6 enters the apertures 2 thereof, and the bibs are thereby held against longitudinal movement with relation to each other. The free ends of the bibs are therefore maintained at the same bevel or angle as that of the neck.

The box section B, which may well be termed the cover or the lid of the carton, consists substantially of a flat substantially rectangular top I1 having two depending parallel side walls I8 and a connecting end wall I9. The bottom of the cover B is entirely open, and the cover is of a dimension to closely t over the inner section A, and close the major portion of its open top.

The top I'I of the cover B has a round opening 20 therethrough which is so located that it surrounds the upper end of the sleeve or cup I6. The material of the top I'I is cut out to form opening 2U, but the material is not completely severed from the rest of the top. Enough of the top material is left intact to form a hinge portion 2|, and the material severed from the top by cutting the opening acts as a door 22 for closing the opening 2D.

As clearly shown in Figs. 3 and 4, the top Il of the section B is of a length substantially equal to the length of the inner section A. As a point slightly short of the end I4 of the section A, the top I'I of the section B is transversely scored or weakened so that a portion 23 of the top may be bent upwardly away from the section A. This end portion 23 of the top I1, has two depending parallel side walls 24 and 25, and has a depending end wall 26, which connects the two side walls. The top portion 23, the side walls 24 and When it is desired to remove one of the bibs I l from the container I0, the dispensing door Cl is merely raised against the tension of the strip 21, and the uppermost bib is'drawn outwardly over the upper edge of the end wall I4 (see dotted lines of Fig. 3).

Obviously the invention is susceptible to some change or alteration Without defeating its practicability and I therefore do not wish to be coniined to the preferred embodiment shown in the drawings and described herein, further .than I am limited by the scope of the appended claims.

I claim: Y

1. A carton for containing a pile of sheet bibs in a manner permitting their individual dispensation, including: a box having a flat bottom; a slanting hollow projection rigidly mounted on the upper surface of said bottom adjacent one end. thereof, said projection for containing clips used for attaching bibs around a Wearers neck, and leaning toward the other end 0f said bottom to iit Within neck openings of the bibs in said pile to cause their free ends to be disposed in slanting relation to each other; a cover for said box;

4 and a closure hingedly attached to one end of said cover for exposing the free ends of said bibs.

2. Structure as specified in claim 1, and a hinged lid on said cover for closing the upper end of said projection.

3. A carton for containing a pile of sheet bibs in a manner permitting their individual dispensation, including: a box having a flat bottom; aslanting tubate projection rigidly mounted on thev upper surface of said bottom adjacent one end thereof and leaning toward the other end of said bottom, said projection adapted to t Within neck openings of the bibs in said pile and to contain clips for attaching the bibs around a wearers neck; a cover for said box; and a closure hingedly attached to one end of said cover for exposing the free ends of said bibs.

4. Structure as specied in claim 3, and a hinged lid on said cover for closing the upper end of said tubate projection.
