While we have illustrated anddescribed the best `V
form of the invention now known to us,y it is to
be understood that the particular embodiment il

lies the invention;
The fabrication of the container member of
the box, according to the method of the present
invention, is Vcarried out in the same manner
as the fabrication of the cover member, so that
Vthe operation will beV described in detail only
with reference to the steps involved ¿in making
the cover, as shown in Figs. 3, 4 and 5.
We claim:
l. A compositestock strip for use in forming
side wall components in the fabrication of boxes
o_f the of
a uniformly Vwide
strip rela
tively heavy fibrous >stock of indefinite length,
having smooth, unbroken edges throughout its
A suitable length of the composite side wall length; >a ply of somewhat stiff, fibrous stock ad-l
strip W, such for exampleas that shown in Fig. hered to a face of said foundation ply, leaving free

together at its freevends, as at I I, for convenience lighter material of superior finish adhered to, and
in manipulation, this side wall ,component is constituting a facing for, that edge and the .ad
f vbent into the approximate shape of the box to be jacent margins of the composite strip which form

stock, such as cardboard, which need vbe finished . beyond said’finish ply and being Adeformable under
only on its free face, the disc preferably vbeing of
a size Ysuitable to »fit snugly within they confines » heat and pressure to constitute a crimped flange
of the heavy foundation ply I2 »as shown most by which to effect attachment of said side wall
strip to a bottom or top element of the box, se-Y
clearly in Figs. 4 and 5. Y
ThisV snug fit is advantageous in therespect
that the disc is thereby caused to overlap the Y , 2. A composite stock strip for use in forming
edge I 3a: of the ply I3, which'serves asian abut#
ment for the disc andai-ds in creating a tight
joint around the innercorner edge of the cover.
At this stage of the operation, the side element
'l W stands with itsîmargin I4 in upright position,
as shownin Fig. 4, ready to be bent overinto the
A'io position
shown in Fig. 5, at I8, this step beingac
complished by suitable means, such asïa hand

margin I4 of theV side wall element is molded by

tion ply of heavy Kraft paper stock of indefinite
length, having smooth, unbroken edges through- '
out its length; a ply of somewhat stiff paper stock,
finished on one face andk adhered Vby vitsother

highly colored paper stock adhered to,.and con
stituting a finish for, that edge and the adjacent
marginof the outer face of _said Kraft paper ply

relatively heavy fibrous stock of indefinite length,
having smooth, unbroken edges throughout its
length; a '_oly of somewhat stiiî, fibrous stock ad

free a longitudinal margin of the latter; and a
ply of lighter material of superior finish ad

and the adjacent margins of the composite strip
which form the free edge of the side Wall of a
box member; Vtl'1e‘other longitudinal edge and ad
jacent margins of said heavy foundation ply be

formable to constitute a crimped flange by which
to effect attachment of said side Wall strip to a
