Teachers' Apple Treat Boxes

Where we live, the school year will be over in one month.  Yikes!  I am planning for teacher appreciation gifts right now, so I am not scrambling at the last minute trying to figure something out to give them. (FYI- Teacher Appreciation week is May 4-8 this year.)
 When I came across these sweet apple treat boxes, I knew they would be perfect!  They are from SVG Attic's Gearing Up 4 School set.  I stuffed them with candy, because after teaching small children all day, I am sure teachers appreciate a little chocolate break now and then :)
 I made the boxes in different colors and used DCWV's Grade School stack for the patterned paper.
I added fun buttons and twine on the top and they were finished!  I can add a tag with the teacher's name on them if I decide to.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
