Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] The present invention is related to an expandable packing device and more particularly, to an expandable packing device applied to a paper holder, a portfolio, a diary, a PP file or the like.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0002] Please refer to FIG. 1. FIG. 1 illustrates a paper holder of the prior art. Typically, a paper holder 10 includes a cover sheet 11, a first inner sheet 13, a bottom sheet 15, and a second inner sheet 17. The first inner sheet 13 with an area smaller than that of the cover sheet 11 is secured on the inner surface 12 of the cover sheet 11 along two edges A and B so as to provide a space between the cover sheet 11 and the first inner sheet 13 for holding papers. The bottom sheet 15 extends from the cover sheet 11 and has the same area as that of the cover sheet 11. And the second inner sheet 17 has the same area as that of the first inner sheet 13 which is secured on the inner surface 14 of the bottom sheet 15 along two edges C and D so as to provide a space between the bottom sheet 15 and the second inner sheet 17 for holding papers 19.

[0003] According to the prior art, the space between the cover sheet 11 and the first inner sheet 13 and that between the bottom sheet 14 and the second inner sheet 17 is limited and merely can hold a few papers. If a large number of papers are forced to be put into the space, all papers would be jammed in the space and hard to be taken out. Furthermore, the first inner sheet 13 and the cover sheet 11 are secured together along two edges, and so do the second inner sheet 17 and the bottom sheet 14. That would take a lot of time and cost a lot to manufacture the paper holder according to the prior art.

[0004] Therefore, it is tried to rectify this drawback by the present applicant.
