Slice O' Pumpkin Pie Box - FREE Template!


I wanted to make one of the cake/pie shaped boxes that you see all the time, so I decided to look for a template. I wasted so much time searching for a template that I liked, I gave up and decided to make my own! I saw a pumpkin pie in a food magazine and wanted to make one like it. I thought these would be so great as place settings or to put out for treats for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
My little box looked so yummy I made a real pumpkin pie for dessert tonight too!

Here is how you make your box:
For the pumpkin pie I used More Mustard card stock and ink. I cut the pie box shape out using the template and scored on the dashed lines. Before you put it together, you might want to sponge the edges, it makes it easier then doing it once its together. Put Tombow adhesive or sticky strip tape on the two tabs attached to the long rectangle section (on left). Glue these to the end triangle piece to form the main box. Do not glue the back, that will be how you get your treats in and out.


For the "crust" I used Soft Suede card stock and sponged the edges with River Rock ink (the suede ink makes it very dark). My piece was 2-3/4" x 3-1/4" and I scored it at 2". I then used the Scallop Edge punch on the top to make the crust more fun. The side edges (crust) of the pie I cut freehand using the template as a guide for size.



And you can't have pie without that nice dollop of whipped cream on the top, right?!

Here is how to make the whipped cream:
Cut out the flower looking shape using the template. Fold over four of the tabs, making sure you are leaving the larger tab(of the two ends of one tab/petal) on the top like shown on right.


Fold over the next tab, but tuck under the small petal on that tab. Then do the same to the last so they all tuck under each other.

If you make a different kind of pie, send me a photo! I would love to see them!

This is so kewl! Thanks for sharing the template, and how you did it. The whipped cream is fantastic! My son wants a pecan pie for his birthday in a couple weeks, might have to see if I can come up with a pecan pie box. Lemon Meringue would be neat too. I'll let you know if I succeed. lol

My 10 year old daughter needed a box to giver her teacher a gift for Pi Day today. She made it bigger so a Tee shirt could fit inside, and she decided on Cherry Pie! Thanks so much for the pattern, it saved us a lot of time last night. Here is a photo:
