6 Claims. (Cl. 224-45)
.My invention relates to bottle carriers and
other packaging carriers and cartons in which
the completed flat structure may be erected and
completed by the folding of integral portions
thereof in such a way as to form end straps or
end walls. at the time of insertion of the material
or articles to be packaged.
I have illustrated my invention in a form suit
able for a bottle carrier.

be described below.
The end wall forming elements are formed in
the blank by two elongated slitted portions ‘I and
8, connected at their ends to the body of the ,
blank. This connecting portion is scoredin tri
angular form by means of score lines ‘la, defin

The portions 4 and 5 are scored so as to fold

as will be described, the material is slit from por
tions of the material within the con?nes of the
side margins of the side walls. This effects a
great saving of board, and enables me to provide
perfectly adequate packages for many articles
with substantial savings, which in the present
emergency is highly necessary.
In the claims that follow I will set forth the
novelty inherent in the invention so illustrated
and I here refer to the’ claims for that purpose.

carrying of the device. .
The structure may'be understood from the
mode of erecting it. .As a ?rst operation, shown
in Fig. 3, the blank is folded on the line 2a. Then
the folded over portion is folded back on the line
6 as shown in Fig. 4. Thereafter the ?nal fold
is along the line 3a and the result is a folded
carrier as shown in Fig. 5, a perspective of which
is shown in Fig. 6.
To set up the device, the folded carrier is
opened and the two end strap portions pushed
down onthe median score line ‘B.
This brings
the two straps to a depending position. ,They
are then twisted or folded outwardly and up
