  • Patent number: 4777066
    Abstract: A bag or gift package particularly adapted for use with a self-forming ribbon bow is formed with front and rear panels joined together along three marginal edges, including the two sides and the bottom, and open at the top. A sleeve is formed in surrounding relation to the top of the bag and spaced inwardly of the top, to define a passageway for the insertion of the operating ribbons of a self-forming ribbon bow. The encircling sleeve includes transversely extending strips of material which are welded along their marginal edges to leave a center portion free, thereby defining a sleeve-like opening. Access openings are provided through the sleeve in the front and the rear of the panel for the insertion and removal of the bow operator ribbons, and cutouts are formed in the sealed marginal edges to permit the ribbons to exit and re-enter the sleeve in making the turn about the edges of the bag.
