4 Claims. (Cl. 229—15)
This invention relates to an article carrier and, more
particularly, to article carriers formed from the individ
ual partition members of a nested partition.

ceiving groove 19. A plurality of scored knock-out por
tions 2t) are provided in top section 16, which, when re
moved, de?ne article receiving apertures 21. Knock-out
portions 20‘ would be of a size suf‘?cient to accommodate
whatever article it is desired to support therein. It will
be apparent that the number of knock-out portions 20
may vary as circumstances dictate.
Inspection of FIG. 2 reveals that longitudinal slit 11
divides the supporting portion 14 in two. A pair of
crosswise slits 22 and 23 are provided extending from
slit 11 into each side of supporting portion 14. Each
side of supporting portion 14 is further provided with op
positely ‘directed transverse creases 24 and 25. Similar

when the two sides of supporting portion 14 are so in

effect, form one crease parallel to crease 12. Similarly,
creases 26 and 27 coincide with each other, when the two
sides of supporting portion 14 are interlocked by way
of slits 22 and 2.3, permitting tabs 30 and 31 to coincide.
The partition is folded along crease lines 15, 12 and

use as a partition has been accomplished.
