Learn how to make a pice slice box for Thanksgiving using one sheet of scrapbook paper. Download the free template.
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. You can make the entire treat box from one sheet of 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper or use two to mix and match prints and patterns if your paper is not double-sided.
Our Thanksgivings are relatively small so creating one of these for each guest was doable. 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 my other treat box tutorials.
Pie Slice Boxes for Thanksgiving
- Pie Slice Box Pattern: Link to free pattern located at the end of this post
- 1 or 2 sheets of thick 12″ x 12″ scrapbook paper
- Double-sided tape – Tape runner or 1/4″ Scor-Tape
- Paper Trimmer and/or scissors
- Scoring Board and stylus
- Cardboard or chipboard – *optional
Step by Step Tutorial
Step One: Use the free printable pattern to cut out both pieces of the pie box from patterned scrapbook 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 double-sided tape 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 pie slice box is finished! You can leave them as is or wrap a piece of twine around them once filled. They are the perfect treat to send your Thanksgiving guests home with!
