Heretofore, tissues have often been packaged in cartons of semi-rigid paperboard for home use and in lightweight wrapping materials for pocket use. The latter variety of carton usually has a slit or opening on one side to permit extraction of the tissues. This slit or opening generally runs along the center of one of the faces of the carton along substantially the entire length of that face. The two lips which, when separated, comprise the slit are often attached to one another before the carton is initially opened. The attaching line is usually perforated so that the lips may be separated to form the slit when the package is opened.

When the carton is provided with a dispensing opening a layer of material is usually disposed over that opening. This layer of material is removed to expose the tissues underneath. Such dispensing containers however, have not been satisfactory because they have permitted the uppermost tissue in the stack to remain uncovered, and hence unprotected from dust and other foreign contamination, after the layer of material has been removed.

Furthermore, the number of tissues which can effectively be placed in a container is limited by the fact that tissues are often folded to be interleafed with one another to provide a pop-up feature. This may cause one point on the stack of tissues to be higher than another point on the stack of tissues. In order to accommodate the stack of tissues, the container should be the height of the highest point, thus leaving a portion of the container unused.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION In one aspect, the invention includes a unitary blank of wrapping material comprising a bottom, four sides and a protective top. The protective top is comprised of an under-flap of material which is adjacent to the uppermost tissue over the entire length and width of the under-flap. An over-flap extends from one side and overlays the under-flap over a substantial portion of its width. The under-flap and the over-flap are sealed together to close the container during shipment. However, when a tissue is required the over-flap and the under-flap may be pursed relative to one another to break the seal and provide an opening through which tissues may be extracted.

In another aspect, the invention includes forming a tissue having an embossed grasping end from a blank. The tissue is formed by folding a blank along one dimension repeatedly in alternate directions until it has a dimension substantially equal to the width of the container and then folding the tissue in half along its length to give it a length dimension substantially equal to the length dimension of the container. The container is formed from a single sheet of plastics material which is folded to form a bottom, two sides, two ends and a two layer protective top. The ends may be folded to abut one another or may be folded to overlap one another.

The two layers which form the protective top may be bonded to one another by adhesives and provided wit a strip to separate them.

In a further aspect, the invention comprises folding a blank into a wrapping in which the ends of the wrapping abut one another and may be sealed to one another by the use of an impulse seal.

In yet a further aspect of the invention. thetissue fold provides a stack having a uniform finished height.

One advantage of the dispensing; wrapper according to the invention is that the tissues within the dispensing wrapper are protected from contamination by the two layer top while being easily accessible. The tissues may be extracted from the dispensing wrapper by inserting two fingers between the two layers of the'protective 'top.

Another advantage of the invention is that the tissueswhich are folded to provide a uniform height stack may be grasped along their embossed edges and withdrawn easily from the stack..

One object of the invention therefore, is to provide an improved package for wrapping and dispensing tissues.

It is another object of this invention to provide a package which has a protective top to prevent contamination of tissues after the package has been opened.

It is a further object of the invention to provide a tissue fold configuration for use in the package which results in a stack of tissues having a uniform height.

It is yet another object of this invention to provide an improved tissue container which is folded to produce a substantially square end. These, other, and additional objects and advantages of the invention will become more fully apparent from the following detailed description, together with the accompanying drawings and the appended claims.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF CERTAIN PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS OF THE INVENTION Referring now to the drawings, a preferred embodiment of the invention comprises a plastic film which envelops a stack of tissues. Each tissue is generally designated as 12. The plastic film 10 is formed into a protective dispensing wrapper which includes a bottom 14, a pair of side walls 16 and 18 perpendicular to the bottom and which extend from the bottom 14, and a pair of end walls 20 and 22 which also extend from the bottom 14 in substantially the same direction as the side walls 16 and 18. Each one of the end walls 20 and 22 is disposed intermediate the two side walls 16 and 18. Each one of the end walls 20 and 22 is approximately the same height as each one of the side walls 16 and 18. The end walls 20 and 22 are formed by folding the plastic film 10 on itself, as will be discussed hereinbelow.

The protective dispensing wrapper also includes a top 24 which is substantially parallel to the bottom and perpendicular to both of the side walls 16 and 18 and the end walls 20 and 22. The top comprises of underflap 28 and a protective over-flap 30. The under-flap 28 extends from one of the side walls 16 in the direction of the other side wall 18 for a distance approximately equal to two-thirds of the distance between the side wall 16 and the side wall 18. The under-flap 28 extends the entire distance from one of the end walls 20 to the other end wall 22. The protective over-flap 30 extends from the other side wall 18 in the direction of the first side wall 16. The protective over-flap 30 extends from the other side wall 18 approximately 80 percent of the distance towards the first side wall 16. One edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30 is free. The protective over-flap 30 extends from one end wall 20 the other end wall 22. The protective overflap 30 is bonded to the under-flap 28 in the vicinity of the free edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30. A bond line 34, which may be formed by heat bonding or adhesives, secures the protective over-flap 30 to the under flap 28.

A variety of end wall 20 and 22 configurations may be achieved with the plastic film 10. For example, in FIG. 1A, the top 24 has a set of extensions 24a, 24b, and the bottom 14 has a set of extensions 14a, 14b. The side walls 16 and 18 are also extended outwardly to form sets of extensions 16a, 16b and 18a, 18b, respectively. The extensions are of a length approximately equal to one-half the height of the end walls 20 22. In FIG. 1A the length of each one of the extensions is slightly greater than one-half of the height of the end walls 20 and 22. When one of the extensions 14a of the bottom 14 meets one of the extensions 24a of the top 24, a seam 38 may be formed by melting and fusing the extensions.

If the extensions are one-half of the height of the walls 20 and 22, the extension 24a of the top 24 and the extension 14a of the bottom 14 will abut one another. A strip of adhesive may be overlayed on the two abutting extensions 24a, 14a to secure the two extensions to one another. The protective over-flap 30 has a perforated score line 40 which runs parallel to the unattached edge 32 of the protective top flap 30. The score line 40 is disposed intermediate the bond line 34 and an unattached edge 29 of the under-flap 28. The perforated score line 40 may be broken by exerting pressure on the protective top flap 30. When the perforated score line 40 is broken across its length, it provides an opening through which the tissues 12 may be removed from the stack.

Referring to FIG. 2 there is shown a blank of the plastic film 10 which, when assembled, forms the protective dispensing wrapper 8 shown in FIG. 1 and IA. The blank of the plastic film 10 has a length L" and a width W. The length dimension L" comprises five panels 42, 44, 46, 48 and 50. The first panel 42 corresponds to the under-flap 28 and the under-flap extensions 28a and 28b in the assembled package. The center portion of the first panel 42, corresponding to the under-flap 28, has a length X and a width Y, where X is less than W. Each one of the under-flap extensions 28a, 28b has a length Z= W X)/(2) and a width Y.

The second panel 44 corresponds to the side wall 16 and the side wall extensions 16a and 16b. The center portion of the second panel 44 corresponding to the side wall 16 has a length X and a width E, where E is substantially equal to the height of the stack of tissues 12 which will be placed within the protective dispensing wrapper 8 when it is assembled. The first panel 42 and the second panel 44 are associated along a fold line 51. The fold line 51 runs the entire width W of the plastics film 10 and is parallel to the unattached edge 29 of the under-flap 28. The plastic film 10 has a pair of extension fold lines 52 and 54.which are parallel to one another and perpendicular to the unattached edge 29 of the under-flap 28 and the free edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30. Each one of the extension fold lines 52 and 54 extends from the unattached edge 29 to the free edge 32.

Each one of the side wall extensions 16a and 16b has a pair of fold lines 56 and 58. The first fold line 56 commences at the intersection of line 51 with line 52 and intersects the edge of the side panel extension 16a and 16b at a point E/2 from the fold line 51. The fold line 56 is at an interior angle of a where a Tan(2Z/E).

Each one of the under-flap extensions 28a and 28b is provided with fold lines 60 which commence at the intersection of the fold line 51 with the fold line 52 and extend at an interior angle of a to the line fold 51. Fold line 62 is disposed at a distance (Y+ E) from the unattached edge 29 of the under-flap 28. The fold line 62 is parallel to the fold line 51. The fold lines 58 on the under-flap extensions 16a and 16b intersect the intersection of the extension fold lines 52 and 54 with the fold line 62. Each one extends at an interior angle of a to the fold line 62. p

The third panel 46 corresponds to the bottom 14 and the bottom extensions 14a and 14b. The central portion of the third panel 46 corresponding to the bottom 14 has a length X and a width A. The length X is substantially equal to the length of the folded tissues 12 and the width A is substantially equal to the width of each one of the folded tissues 12. A fold line 64 is disposed along each one of the bottom extensions 14a and 14b and intersects the point of intersection of the extension fold lines 52 and 54 with the fold line 62. Each one of the fold lines 64 extends at an interior angle of a.

A third fold line 66 is disposed at a distance A from the second fold line 62. The third fold line 66 is parallel to the first fold line 51 and the second fold line 62. Another set of fold lines 68 extends along the bottom extensions 14a and 14b from the intersection of the extension fold lines 52 and 54 with the third fold line 66. Each one of the fold lines 68 extends at an interior angle of a from the point of intersection.

The fourth panel 48 is substantially the same as the second panel 44. The fourth panel 48 corresponds to the side wall 18 and the side wall extensions 18a and 18b. Each of the side wall extensions is provided with a set of fold lines 70 and 72 substantially the same as the set of fold lines 56 and 58 on the side wall extensions 16a and 16b.

The fifth panel50 corresponds to the protective top flap 30 and the protective over-flap extensions 30a and 30b. The central portion of the fifth panel 50 corresponding to the protective over-flap 30 has a length X and a width B. Each one of the protective over-flap extensions 30a and 30b has a length Z and a width B. The fifth panel 50 extends from a fold line 74 to the unattached edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30. The fold line 74 is parallel to the fold line 66 and is disposed intermediate the fold line 66 and the unattached edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30, and is located a distance E from the fold line 66. The fold line 74 extends the entire width W of the plastic film 10. Each one of a set of fold lines 76 intersects the intersection of the extension fold lines 52 and 54 with the fold line 74 and extends at an angle or along the protective over-flap extensions 30a and 30b.

The score line 40 is disposed intermediate the fold line 74 and the bond line 34. The score line 40 is parallel to both the fold line 40 and the bond line 34. The score line 40 is generally a weakened portion of the plastic film which extends across the entire width W of plastic film 10. When a tissue is desired, the score line 40 may be broken to provide access into the protective dispensing package 8, to the tissues 12.

While the end walls 20 and 22 have been described as comprising substantially abutting ends of the various extensions of the top, bottom and side walls, FIG. 3 and FIG. 4 show several modifications in which the distance Z is substantially greater than E/2. This results in the protective over-flap extensions 30a and 30b overlapping the bottom extensions 14a and 14b. Alternatively, the bottom extensions 14a and 14b may overlap the protective over-flap extensions 30a,'30b. This can best be seen in FIG. 3, FIG. 4, respectively.

In FIG. 3 there is shown the protective dispensing wrapper 8 according to another aspect of the instant invention. The score line 40 has been replaced with a tear strip 80. The tear strip 80 comprises a set of parallel tear lines 82 which are parallel to the unattached edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30. The tear strip 80 is situated intermediate the free edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30 and the free edge 29 of the underflap 28. The bond line 34 is situated intermediate the tear strip 80 and the free edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30. The tear strip 80 extends across the entire width W of the fifth panel 50. When a person desired to open the protective dispensing wrapper 8, the tear strip 80 is lifted along a portion of its length and then torn off of the protective dispensing wrapper 8. This provides an opening through which the tissues may be removed.

For ease in manufacturing, both the tear strip and the score line 40 may be eliminated. In such circumstances, the bond line 34 may comprise a tack seal, as is shown in FIG. 4. The tack seal will maintain the protective over-flap 30 and the under-flap 28 in intimate contact until such time as the protecting dispensing wrapper 8 is opened. By lifting the unattached edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30 away from the under-flap 28, the tack seal is broken and an opening is formed to allow the removal of the tissues 12 from the stack.

The certain preferred embodiment which have been described, may be fabricated from a film of plastic material, such as polyethylene or similar thin flexible films. Generally the preferred embodiment may be employed with tissues of varying sizes and with stacks of varying height. While the protective dispensing wrapper 8 has been described as one which may be used with a variety of tissue sizes, the preferred use of the protective dispensing wrapper is in pocket size tissue dispensers. In such dispensers, it is desirable to utilize all of the available space within the dispensing wrapper. Therefore, it is desirable to have a stack of tissues each of which is of a uniform height to provide a stack of a uniform height.

FIG. 5 best illustrates a fold. configuration for a three-ply tissue which may be employed with the certain preferred embodiments of the invention to yield a tissue stack of a uniform height. The tissue 12, which is also shown in FIG. 1', comprising a multi-ply sheet in which all of the plies have been affixed to one another. A particular embodiment is shown in FIG. 5, and has three plies 90, 92 and 94.

FIG. 6 is a blank of FIG. 5 indicating the fold lines of the tissue of FIG. 5. The blank of the tissue 12 has an overall width of 2X, or twice the length of the central portion of each one of the panels 42 through 50. The blank has a length which is substantially equal to 3A where A is the width of the third panel 46 of the blank of the protective dispensing wrapper 8. The blank of the tissue 12 comprises a first layer which extends from I a first edge 96 of the blank of the tissue 12 a distance 100 which is perpendicular to the first edge 96 to a third edge 102 which is similarly perpendicular to the first edge 96. The fold line 98 is parallel to the first edge 96. A second fold line 104 is disposed parallel to the first fold line 98 a distance 2L from the first edge 96. A third fold line 106 is situated a distance L from the second fold line 104 and a distance 2L L from the first edge 96. A fourth fold line 108 is parallel to the third fold line 106 and located at a distance L from the third fold line 106. The fourth fold line 108 is situated a distance 2L L L from the first edge 96. A fourth edge 110 is disposed parallel to the first edge 96 in a distance L from the fourth fold line 108.

In the preferred embodiment shown in FIG. 6, L L L and L A, the width of the panel 46. A fold line 1 12 is situated equidistant from and parallel to the second edge 100 and the third edge 102. The fold line 112 extends from the first edge 96 to the fourth edge 110. The tissue 12 is comprised of three plies. Because it is desirable to secure the three plies together without increasing the thickness of the tissues, a multiplicity of embossings are located in the vicinity of the first edge 96 and the fourth edge 110. The embossings 120 secure the three plies 90, 92 and 94 to one another by indenting the two outer plies 90 and 94 into the center ply 92, as is best illustrated in FIG. 7.

In order to fold the blank for the tissue 12 to achieve the configuration shown in FIG. 5, the panel between the first edge 96 and the first fold line 98 is folded toward the panel between the first fold line 98 and the second fold line 104. The combined two-layer structure is then folded in the opposite direction along the second fold line 104 so that the second panel is intermediate the first panel and the third panel. The resultant structure is then folded again along the third fold line 106 in the opposite direction (in the direction of the fold along line 98). The four ply structure is then again folded along the fourth fold line 108 in the direction opposite to the folding which occurred along the third fold line 106. This results in a five layer structure which is best seen in FIG. 5. The resultant five layer structure is folded in half along fold line 112. The

resultant width is X. The tissue 12 itself may be made of three plies of non-woven fiber material or other material.

In a preferred embodiment the dimensions of the plastics film are: L=9 /16 inches W= 6 3/16 inches X=4 ll/l6 inches Z inches E 1 l4; inches B=2 9/16 inches I The distance between the bond line 34 and the score line 40 or'the tear strip 80 is approximately 1 ll/32 inches and the distance between the unattached edge 32 of the protective over-flap 30 and the bond line 34 is approximately three-eighths inches. The tissue size is of a length of approximately 9 inches and of a width of approximately 8 A inches. Because of the number of folds in the length direction (98 through 108) approximately one thirty-second inch of extra material has been provided in the length dimension to accommodate for the folds.

In all cases it is to be understood that the above described arrangements, in particular the type of material used in manufacturing the tissues and the protective dispensing wrapper, as well as the dimensions of the tissue and the protective dispensing wrapper are merely illustrative of a particular embodiment of many possible applications of the principle of the invention. Numerous and varied other arrangements in accordance with the principles may readily be devised by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
