  1. We claim an ornamental design for a tissue carbon having prismatic sidewalls, as shown and described.

The sole FIGURE is a perspective view, in actual size, of a tissue carton in which at least one sidewall contains a design in accordance with this invention. Specifically, shown in broken lines is an upright tissue carton for dispensing facial tissues through the top of the carton. The broken lines are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design. The top of the carton contains a removable, substantially oval perforated cardboard portion that covers a slit plastic film dispensing opening. When the user wishes to dispense the tissues, the user removes the cardboard portion to dispense the tissues within the carton. As shown, at least one of the four sides of the carton comprises a prismatic material that captures and reflects light in different directions giving the appearance of depth. The prismatic material provides at least four individual prismatic square cells which provide three-dimensional sources of reflected light that result in the tissue carton having a distinctive, aesthetic appearance. More specifically, the particular prismatic material illustrated is a repeating Fresnel pattern film laminate sold under the trademark Multi-Len™ by Coburn Corporation, Lakewood, New Jersey. Exemplary colors for the prismatic material included blue, gold, magenta, green, silver, purple and red.
