Little Apple Box with MTC File

Hello all and hope you had a great weekend! Today is Bean's first day of "school." She actually does have workbooks, assignments, and will be bringing homework. I don't remember being 4, but I don't think I had that much responsibility!

For the first day of school, I wanted to "get in good" with the teachers, and this is what Bean will present them with:
I made little apple boxes. Actually, they aren't as small as you might think. They take the full 12" on the Cricut mat for a total cut of 12" by approximately 5" in width. I didn't do too much decorating on this one so you can see the actual box.
Here's a side view. It's all one piece with little tabs that are scored and glued inside. I did a little sewing around the apple as well as some shading.
Inside view to show the tabs and some of the assembly. I've already put these together with a little white paper and a bag of Hershey's Kisses tied with a bow. Once again, I had trouble with tag placement. Some people are so good at this, but I have such a block! So, I did without tags. I figure if it's handed to them personally by Bean, then they will remember it's from her.

I don't know if this box already exists out there, but I made mine from shapes here and there. So feel free to take the MTC file if you'd like:

Thanks for stopping by! If you do use this, I hope you will share your creation with me!

Well this will definitely put her "in good " with the teachers... I wish I had MTC... super suer cute, and I love how you sewed around the apple, love the whole thing. I can't believe she will be having homework... at 4. I am sure she feels like such a BIG girl... I hope you are taking lots of pictures for her scrap book... hugs from Ukiah
