  1. We claim the ornamental design for a container with flexible opening, as shown and described.
Description

The ornamental design of this invention is a container having a pop-up dispensing opening comprising a flexible material having one or more slits which define the dispensing opening. The dispensing opening is set into the large lid of the container and is covered by a flip-top type of dispensing lid when the flip-top lid is closed. The container is adapted to hold a stack of wet wipes which are dispensed through the flexible star-shaped opening in a pop-up fashion. The flip-top lid, when closed, inhibits drying out of the exposed portion of the web in between dispensing events.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a container in accordance with the invention, in which the dispensing opening has a star-shaped slit configuration.

FIG. 2 is a top view of the container of FIG. 1 with the flip-top lid closed.

FIG. 3 is a bottom view of the container of FIG. 1.

FIG. 4 is a front view of the container of FIG. 1.

FIG. 5 is a rear view of the container of FIG. 1.

FIG. 6 is a right side view of the container of FIG. 1; and,

FIG. 7 is a left side view of the container of FIG. 1.
