It’s the start of a new school year and time to make a good impression. Wouldn’t it be fun to impress your teacher with an apple treat box? These boxes would also be perfect for a Back to School Party or a fun way to celebrate International Eat an Apple Day (September 20th). Pack these apples with any type of candy but if you want to be a bit sneaky you can fill them with gummy worms!
Materials: Printable Apple Box Template, 8.5 x 11 card stock (I used Epson Ultra Premium Matte Presentation Paper), scissors, craft knife, bone folder, ruler or other straight edge (not pictured), glue, hole punch, toothpicks, candy.
Step 1: Print out the Printable Apple Box Template on 8.5 x 11 card stock.
Step 2: Cut out the the apple box template & leaf.
Step 3: Using the bone folder, score along all of the white lines indicated on the template & fold all scored edges.
Step 4: Put glue on all of the small flaps and assemble the box as pictured.
Step 5: With the craft knife, poke a small hole in the top of the box so that a toothpick will fit snug.
Step 6: Using the hole punch, make a cute worm hole by punching a few times on one side of the apple. This is optional.
Step 7. Using the craft knife, poke 2 holes in the leaf in the indicated spots and feed the toothpick through.
Step 8: Add your favorite candy to the apple box and top with the leafy toothpick.
Step 9: Impress your teacher!
