How to Assemble the Printable Leftover Pie Boxes
- Pie box templates
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Optional: electronic cutting machine
- I love my Silhouette Cameo for making quick work of cutting templates.
Each pie box is sized to hold an 1/8 of a 10″ pie (4 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 2 1/2).
Print the templates out onto cardstock. If using a Silhouette Cameo to cut your templates, make sure to set up your SVG for print & cut (here are some of my best tips & tricks for print & cut).
Cut along the pale gray lines. Fold along the dotted lines. If using the PDF version and cutting by hand, use a simple paper scorer to create crisp fold lines.
Start by glueing together the tip of the lid and pie box. I love using hot glue for paper crafts because it holds ridiculously well, dry super fast, and I always have it on hand!
Another one of my favorite paper glues is ZipDry. It doesn’t dry quite as quickly so it is great for when you need a little more time to line things up.
Next, glue the back of the box (which is attached to the lid) to the flap on the bottom of the pie box. Make sure the all flaps are on the inside of the box.
Finish up by glueing the side flaps to the back of the box.
And now you are ready to eat pie because you have the perfect place for storing those leftovers.
I can’t wait to sen everyone home from Thanksgiving dinner with one or two slices in these adorable leftover pie boxes!
Here’s to eating pie!
