l-t is frequently desirable to package in a single carton
one or more cans or bottles of the type which have rela-A
tively large bases v`andrrnall tops. Typical of such arti
cles are pressure spray cans which are generally cylin
drical throughout the major portion of their height and
which taper inwardly to reduced diameter caps, various
types of bottles which taper from a large lower portion
top panel. ,In this position, the caps 68 of the containers
will extend into the openings 74a so that the portions
of the flap at the sides of the openings will engage the
sides of the caps and hold them against movement either
toward or away from each other. Thus, in this construc
tion, the articles are securely held in the carton in side
by side relationship. It will be noted that the cartonr
has a dat top panel overlying the tops of the articles
therein so that the cartons can be stacked without diíti
culty.
