DIY Pie Box | EAT DRINK CREATE

Remember that little summer party we had for EAT DRINK CREATE? And remember how we had a gazillion little slices of pie? And remember how I sneaked several of the slices and hid them in a special place to take home and devour after? Me too.

There are a million and one ways to make a pie box. You can buy cute cute ones online. Or you can save money and make them yourself. And then revel in glory as people admire your talent. ;)

DIY Pie Box

Supplies:

  • Pie Box Template (download at the bottom of this post)
  • Kraft Paper Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Bone Folder
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Tissue Paper
  • Baker’s Twine & Wooden Utensil

DIY Pie Box

Print out the template on an 8.5 x 11 piece of kraft paper cardstock. Cut it out and use it to trace more if needed. You can fit two pie boxes on a 12 x 12 piece of kraft paper cardstock. Save a template to use when you have to make a large number of these pie slices.

Using your bone folder, fold in all of the slanted flaps and then the three flat sides. Make sure you press hard and create sharp creases.

Place a small dollop of hot glue on all the tiny flaps and press against the large sides with your finger. This should create a three-dimensional box.

Confession: At IKEA in the checkout area, they provide their customers with lots of tissue paper to wrap your fragile items. Whenever I’m there, I take a huge stack of the tissue paper. Like a thief! I hate myself. But I can’t help myself because the tissue comes in all sorts of beautiful natural colors.

Fill with a few small squares of tissue paper. Then, add the pie. This is tricky if you’re name is Lexy because you will most likely want to eat the pie. Resist! Resist, I tell you! Wrap the utensil to the box with a little baker’s twine and admire your pretty little dessert.
