chocolate watermelon candies for teacher gift basket

The bag of dark chocolate watermelon sticks is bigger than one person needs so package up a few sticks in smaller plastic bags and add a label.

What you need to recreate these personal candy bags:

You want to place the largest objects in the basket first to make sure you have enough room. Add the mini watermelon and slide the plates in on the side.

The bowls make for a nice place to display the smaller treat items like gum and candy. You can add in tissue paper to fill in any gaps at the end but it's not necessary.

Present Your Teacher Gift

Print up a label, add some ribbons to the side and you're ready to gift your basket to a grateful teacher! What else would you put in a watermelon basket? If I've missed any great treats please let me know.
