Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away and I have an easy paper craft you can whip up in time for the holiday! Pie is definitely one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving, and since I almost always get carried away and make too many pies, I always have leftovers! These DIY pie treat boxes will be perfect for sending guests home with an extra slice!
I found gorgeous autumn-themed paper at my local scrapbook store, which was perfect for Thanksgiving. The paper is double-sided which is fun when you open up the box! Our Thanksgivings are relatively small so creating one of these for each guest was a breeze. I have parchment paper and twine ready to use when wrapping them up. I love treat boxes, especially for the holidays. You can check out some of the others I’ve created here. Download the free pattern below and create a few pie boxes of your own!
Supplies Needed for DIY Thanksgiving Pie Box:
- Free printable pattern: Thanksgiving Pie Box Pattern
- Two coordinating sheets of Patterned paper
- Glue stick or tape runner
- Paper cutter *optional
- Scoring board and stylus * optional
Step One: Use the free printable pattern to cut out both pieces of the pie box from the patterned paper. You can fit two box pieces on a 12″x 12″ sheet of paper. If your paper is double-sided, you could create the box from one sheet of paper!
Step Two: Score the fold lines by hand or with a scoring board and stylus.
Step Three: Tape the box together. I like to use a tape roller on treat boxes because they hold really well and do not warp the paper like glue can.
Step Four: Use the printable pattern to cut a piece of cardboard to fit into the bottom of the box. I added this to strengthen the pie box, but it isn’t completely necessary. I used parchment paper around the slices of pie to keep the box from becoming damp from the fruit in the pie.
The treat box is finished! You can leave them as is or wrap a piece of twine around them. They are the perfect treat to send your Thanksgiving guests home with!
I’ll be back later this week with another fun Thanksgiving craft!
