Application led November 9, 1903. Serial No. 180,385.

To all. 11:/m/n, il; viz/ny concer/1,:

Be it known that we, ELLswoic'rii E. FLORA and Juriifs il. His'i'ifii), citizens of the United .5L-aies, residing at Chicago, in the county of (look and State vof Illinois, have invented new and useful Iiiipi'oveinents in Folding Cartons, of which the following is a specification.

'l his invention relates to improvements in fold ing )apei' boxes or cartons for use as packages or for any other purpose where A.. eiose readily-sealed small paper shipping- :aekage is desired.

Our object is to provide a folding carton of iiipro ved construction which when collapsed ztcnds iiatwise for convenience in shipping .l handling and which when opened out or xpaiided forins a. receptacle presenting a g tight bottoni and sides with a cover or top 1 which may be readily fastened .down to forni a c lose package.

Our object is, further, to provide such a carton which in its make-up will require,

comparatively speaking, but a ininiinuini amount of material.

Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 shows a paper blank for a carton square iii crosssectioii, the scores at which folds occur being indicated by dotted lines; Figs. 2, 3, 4, 5,

and 6, broken views of the blank, illustrating the successive steps in making the folds; Fig.

7, a broken perspective view showing the lower part of the interior of the carton with the base thereof partly collapsed Fig. S, a broken perspective view of the lower end 5 portion of the carton; Fig. 9, a similar vie of the u `)per end portion of the carton partly closed; Fig. l0, a sectional view of the saine with the cover closed; Fig. 1 l, a blank for a rectangular carton oblong in cross-section; Figs. l2, 13, 14, and 15, top plan views illustrat-ing the manner of folding the blank into a carton; Fiv. 16, a view of the oblong carton collapsed panded shown with not-ches x separated from the body portion, forming the ioni' sides of the carton, by creases or scores y y.

scores y2 y y into the side spaces a., b, e, and

to ext-end ilatwise, and Fig. 17 i a perspective view of the oblong carton ex- The body portion is divided by i d. At the lower ends oil the spaces r1 f7. are l the pasting-naps a (Z, and on the edge of the s )ace or part d is a 1 )astiiig-i'lap c, separated tiierefroin by a score Extending i'roin the lower end of the spaces b c is a projection separated by the score-lines y y into square spaces or parts to forni the bottoni of the carton. One bottoni part is separated by the creases or scores z z' into triangular spaces ffj'f, the spacef having an extension or pasting-flapj'*. The other part of the bottoni is separated by the creases or scores z2 z" into triangular spaces g g' gl g.

To forni the carton fi'oiii the blank, the lower blank extension and the [laps a. d are turned upward on the score y', as indicated in Fig. 2. rlhen the parts g2 g are turned upon the parts g g', as shown in Fig. 3. Then the partsff3 are turned upon. the partsfj'g and the ila ij" guinined to the-part y, as indicated in 1` ig. 4. Then the part l is turned upon the part c and the ilap d guniined to the part g1, as indicated in Fig. Then the part a is turned upon the part I), the flap 1'. being guinined to the part a, and the flap a. i ouinmed to the partf to appear as indicated 5 in Fig. 6. W'lien the carton, collapsed as indicated in Fig. 6, is squeezed in the direction of the arrows in that ligure, the folded parts expand or open out, the bottoni appearing as shown in Fig. S. The part which forins the top of the carton and which is separated froin the body portion by the score y is divided by the scores -y`I j and inclined scores y y? into the spaces li. li 'i lc and tongue L, separated froi'ii the part by the cut L through the inate-iial. W lien the top is folded at the scores, as shown in Fi". S), the part-s il l/ and c 7s forni siniple be lows sides, presenting a pocket m, into which the tongue L may be passed, as indicated Fig. 10, to close the carton and at the saine tinie hold it against collapsing. At the junction of the scores z2 z is a perforation n, over i which is pasted a piece of thin paper or cloth n', closing the perforation and insurii'ig by its flexibility proper and ready movement of the parts in opening or collapsing the carton.

The blank shown in Fig. 11. has the saine foriii of top as the other blank described; but the bottoni necessarily diil'ei's therefrom on 1 account of the oblong sli-ape of the carton.

sions ya q and flaps (1, c are turned upon the score y', as shown7 for example, in Fig. 12.

The parts Z g are then. turned and the flap c gunnncd to the part g', as indicated in Fig. 13. The part a is then turned and the flap n. gunnned to the part 722. The parts are then turned upon the score y to cause the part g to overlie the part p, filling ou t the base conipletely, the flap e being gunnned to the part (L. In collapsing, the part g bends upward or inward on its score and the part p downward or outward to present the external appearance indicated in Fig. 16. The top of the carton, as shown in Fig. 17, is the saine as that shown in Fig. 9 and operates in the saine way.

The bottom, more especially of the carton shown in Figs. 1 to 10, inclusive, is particularly Well adapted for coin-packages or packages intended to hold granular or pulverulent material, and the top when closed is very tight and offers means for readily sealing the package against its being opened Without destruction of the package.
