The holidays mean tons of delicious pie options. And here at the studio, we will be the first to say that we can’t wait! Personally, my all-time favorite pie is pumpkin pie. It’s also definitely a crowd favorite in the studio! To encourage you to spread some yummy pie love, we created these DIY pie slice boxes. You can use them as gifts and favors—or as the perfect to-go container after a fall dinner party.
Easy as Pie
Sometimes we get a little carried away adding adorable accents to projects, and this project was no exception. These pie boxes are designed to look like slices of pumpkin pie, plus we added dollops of paper whipped cream that you can attach to the top.
And of course the pie slice boxes would not be complete without a cute set of gift tags. We used our PIXMA MG7720 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer to print the designs onto 8.5″x11″ white cardstock. You certainly do not want to use anything lighter than cardstock because it will not be sturdy enough! Next, cut out the designs and assemble with glue, a glue dot roller, or double-sided tape.
The beauty of these pie slice boxes is how easily you can style them. The crust piece is optional, but we find it to be pretty irresistible. To add whipped cream, trim the template and fold it with all the tabs facing the same way.
Finally, finish off your gift pie with one of the fall themed gift tags in the download. Tape it right to the box, or punch a hole in the tag and use baker’s twine to wrap the tag to the box.
