A third bottom folding assembly 100 is attached along an eighteenth fold line 102 to the first side panel 14. The third bottom folding assembly 100 also includes a glue panel 104. A first connecting panel 106 is connected along a nineteenth fold line 108 to the first bottom flap 78 at one end and to the glue panel 104 along a twentieth fold line 110 at an other end.

A fourth bottom folding assembly 112 is attached along a twenty-first fold line 114 to the fifth side panel 30. The fourth bottom folding assembly 112 also includes a glue panel 116. A second connecting panel 118 is connected along a twenty-second fold line 120 to the second bottom flap 82 at one end and to the glue panel 116 along a twenty-third fold line 122 at an other end.

Near the bottom edge of the sixth side panel 34 is a cutout 124 to accept a spigot from a bag (not shown) within the carton 12. Near the top edge of the third side panel 22 is a cutout 126 for use as a finger-hole to carry the carton.

To assemble the carton 12 from the blank 10, as shown in FIGS. 2-6, the first and second bottom flaps 78,82 are folded upwards along the tenth and eleventh fold lines 76,80, respectively. (FIG. 2). Third and fourth bottom folding assemblies 100 and 112 are likewise folded upward along the eighteenth and twenty-first fold lines 102,114 as they are attached to the first and second bottom flaps 78,82. The glue panels 104,116 are hot glued along glue lines 128 and 130 to the interior surfaces of the first and fifth side panels 14,30, respectively.

Securement panels 93,103 are folded upward along thirteenth and sixteenth fold lines 89,94, respectively. Glue panels 91,99 are back-folded on fourteenth and seventeenth fold lines 90, 98, respectively. Cold glue is applied to glue panel 91. The blank 10 is then folded inwards along the third fold line 24 connecting the third and fourth side panels 22,26 such that the first, second, and third side panels 14,18,22 overlap the fourth, fifth, and sixth side panels 26,30,34. (FIG. 3). As the blank 10 is folded along the third fold line 24, glue panel 91 adheres to first bottom tab 85. Cold glue is also applied to glue panel 99 and glue flap 46 as indicated by reference numeral 132. The blank 10 is folded along seventh fold line 40 to adhere glue panel 99 to second bottom tab 95 and eighth panel 42 to glue flap 46. In an embodiment of the present invention, the blank 10 is shipped to a customer in the state shown in FIG. 4.

When the customer prepares the blank 10 to form a carton 12, the customer expands the folded blank 10 along the fold lines connecting the side panels until the carton 12 takes shape without the need for additional gluing or construction. The first and second bottom folding assemblies 84,92 are folded downward along the twelfth, thirteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth fold lines 86,89,97,94. (FIG. 5). The first bottom flap 78 folds downwards along tenth fold line 76. The first connecting panel 106 is back-folded along the nineteenth and twentieth fold lines 108,110. The second bottom flap 82 folds downward along eleventh fold line 80 over the top of the first bottom flap 78. The second connecting panel 118 is back-folded along the twenty-second and twenty-third fold lines 120,122, thus forming the auto-erecting bottom of the carton 12.

To close the top of the carton 12, first through fourth top cover flaps 58,60,62,64 are folded downward along top fold lines 59, top flaps 50,52 are folded inward, and the top cover panel 54 is folded downward along eighth fold line 57. Top cover locking flap 70 is folded downward along ninth fold line 72. Locking tab 48 is inserted into cutout 74.

While the specific embodiments have been illustrated and described, numerous modifications come to mind without significantly departing from the spirit of the invention, and the scope of protection is only limited by the scope of the accompanying Claims.
