  1. The ornamental design for a carton blank, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is an outside plan view of a carton blank showing our new design; and,

FIG. 2 is an inside plan view thereof.

The even-length broken lines represent claimed crease lines on the flat surface designed to accommodate folding during carton assembly. The rectangle formed by uneven-length broken lines represents an unclaimed boundary of the claimed design. The uneven-length broken lines within the unclaimed boundary represent an unclaimed tab formed in the unclaimed region.
