St. Patrick's Day AND Happy Easter Treat Boxes... 2 Holidays In One...

St.  Patrick's Day is big in my home...
I am not Irish but my 3 little leprechauns are half...
And for my littlest leprechaun...
Well, he just has to celebrate by giving treats to his entire class, his aides, his teachers, bus driver and all the people who work with him

Then I realized that Easter was basically right after...UGH...
How do I make 60 treat boxes in a week???

Well, I decided to combine them both... LOL
One side St. Patrick's Day
One side Easter...
Problem solved.

Since he is in special education,
 I had to come up with a box that would not have any staples, metal or be hard to open...
Then I found this...actually, it found me...

To make my treat boxes I used:

Cardstock by Recollections
Cardstock by Sonburst
Goldenrod by Stickles
Easter by TPC Studio
St. Patrick's Day VC0052 by Studio G
Pot O' Gold, Candy Bunny, and Carrot by Lifestyle Crafts
Crystal by Stampendous
Eucalyptus, Baby Blue, Icicle, Cotton Candy, Yellow by Stickles
Curved Rectangles by Spellbinders
Big & Bossy by Ranger

Here are my treat boxes:
