Another object of this invention is to provide an article of the character described comprising a folder having a pair of hinged sections receiv ing the writing paper therebetween, and a cover member associated with one of said pair of sec (01. 20.6-—63) 2 . Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional'view taken on line 5-5 of Fig. 1. Referring now in detail to the drawing, I0 designates a stationery package embodying the invention. The same comprises a folder I | adapt ed to carry a plurality of envelopes l2, a blotter I3, and sheets of writing paper l4. The folder || comprises a pair of rectangular sections I6 and I1 preferably of the same size. Section I‘! 10 may be made of relatively stiff cardboard, where as section |6 may be made of heavy paper or relatively thin cardboard. Sections I6 and H may be hinged together by a ?exible hinge l8 tions and provided with tabs extending through which may comprise an elongated strip of tape or slits in said latter section, and forming therewith a compartment for envelopes, said tabs serving to 15 cloth or the like ?exible material having side edges IBa and Ila pasted or otherwise secured retain a blotter on an inside surface of said sec to adjacent end edges of sections l6 and I1. Strip tion. l8 preferably has an intermediate portion |9 be Yet another object of this invention is to pro tween portions |6a and Ila to permit sections vide in a stationery package of the character de scribed, a folder having a section formed with a 20 l6 and I‘! to be spaced from one another. The sheets l4 of writing paper are placed on plurality of slits, and a section hinged to said ?rst section I‘! and between sections I6 and I1. section and formed with side walls engaging said Extending from section I6 is an integral mem ?rst section and with tabs on the side walls pass ber 20, formed from the same blank, The cover ing through said slits, whereby to space the ?rst section from the second section to form a com . member 20 comprises a flat top wall or section 2| which may be of any decorative shape and which may be printed or embossed on its outer envelopes, one end of said second section being surface with any suitable picture or printed mat adapted to be lifted to release one of the tabs ter. Section 2| is connected to section It by a from its slit, whereby to open said compartment side wall 22. Section 2| is preferably of less width 30 and permit removal of envelopes therefrom. and length than section l6 so as to only partially Yet another object of this invention is to pro cover the latter. The length of wall 22 is less vide a neat, compact stationery package of the than the length of section I6. As shown in the character described which shall be relatively in drawing, side wall 22 terminates short of the expensive to manufacture, and yet practical, at ends of section IS. The length of side wall 22 tractive and e?‘lcient to a high degree in use. may be equal to the length of section 2|. Other objects of this‘inventlon will in part be Extending from the'upper and lower ends of obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out. section 2| are end walls 24 and 25 of the same The invention accordingly consists in the fea width as side wall 22, having edges 24a and 25a partment therebetween to receive a plurality of tures of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts which will be exem pli?ed in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indi cated in the following claims. In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown various possible illustrative embodiments of this invention: Fig. 1 is a top plan view of a stationery pack age embodying the invention. Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the package shown in Fig. 1 with the cover section unfolded and laid ?at. Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the folder with the hinged-together sections of the folder opened up. Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 1. 40 of walls 24, 25 contacting section l6. Extending from walls 24 and 25 are tabs 28 and 29 of less length than walls 24 and 25 and‘formed at the inner ends thereof with tongues 28a and 29a. It will be noted that side wall 22 is connected 45 to sections l6 and 2| by fold or crease lines 22a and 22b respectively. Walls 24 and 25 are con nected to section 2| and tabs 28 and 29 by crease lines 2 la and 2 lb, respectively. At the end of section 2| is an end wall 32 par 50 allel to wall 22 and connected to section 2| by crease line 32a. The width of wall 32 is the same as the width of walls 22, 24 and 25. Extending from wall 32 is a tab 33 connected to wall 32 by crease line 32b. Wall 2| is formed with a tab ex 65 tension 2 lo cut from walls 32 and 33. Thus walls , 2,413,474 3 4 32 and 33 are formed with a slit 34 to produce ' extend through said slits, and lie parallel to the the tab 2l'c when wall 32 and tab 33 are bent downwardly from section 2 I. By reason of the slit face of said slitted section and a blotter retained against the inner surface of said slitted section 34 a cutout or opening is formed in wall 32 and tab 33 when said wall and tab are bent down wardly from section 2|. by said tabs. 2. A folder comprising a pair of superposed hinged-together sections, a cover member extend Section 16 is formed with a pair of parallel ing from one side of one of said sections, said slits 49 and 4H aligned with walls 24 and 25 and with a slit 42 aligned with wall 32. covermemberhavingside and end‘walls, and a top wall, said latter section being formed with slits, The cover section 2| may be folded over sec 10 said end walls, and one of said side walls being I tion l6 and tabs 28, 29 and 33 pass downwardly formed with tabs extending through said slits, through slits ell, iii and 42, respectively. It will be noted that wall 32 is longer than tab 33 thus forming edges M on said 'wall'adapted to contact section I6. It will be noted that walls24, 25 and 32 form side walls of a compartment 50 when the tabs 2%, 25 and 33 are passed through the slits at, M and 42. Within the compartment 50 are the envelopes i2. To remove an envelope, said top wall being formed with a tab extension cut from said one of said side walls, said tabs be ing folded inwardly, and a sheet held against the inner surface of said latter section by said inwardly folded ‘tabs. 3. A folder comprising a pair of superposed hinged~together sections, a cover member extend ing from one side of one of said sections, said cover member having side and end walls, and atop :wall, said latter section being formed with slits,:said end walls, 'and‘one of said side walls it is merely necessary to grasp the tab He and pull out the tab 33, thus exposing one side of compartment 59 through which envelopes may be removed. It will be noted that tabs 28, 29 and being formed with tabs extending through said 33 are folded inwardly after passing through slits, ‘said top wall'being formed with a tab ex theslits. The blotter i2 is slipped in beneath 25 tension cut from said one of said side walls, said section it and engages tabs '28, 29 and 33 as illus tabs being folded inwardly, and a sheet held trated in Fig. 3 of the drawing. against the inner surface of said latter section It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this inven tion are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use. As ‘various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiments above set by said inwardlyfolded tabs, said cover forming acompartment with said latter section, and en velopes within said compartment. ‘LA stationery package comprising a folder, said folder comprising a pair of sections hinged together ‘at adjacent ends, one of said sections being formed with a plurality of slits, a cover forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein member extending from said slitted section and set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense. folded 'thereover to form a compartment there member extending from one of said sections and said slitted section, and a tongue on at least one folded thereover, and forming a compartment of sai‘ditabs to engagean end ofone of said slits. with, envelopes within said compartment, said cover'member being provided with tabs which ex Having thus described my invention, I claim tend‘throug’h said slits and lie parallel to the 40 face of said slitted section, a blotter retained as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent: 1.
