Video Tutorial: Paper Pie Boxes

The holidays are upon us! Would you like to create a fun centerpiece or have a yummy favor to pass out to your guests? Why not try these SIMPLY SIMPLE Pie Boxes!  I was so tickled by your comments on my post about my pie boxes.  I’m so glad you want to learn to make them!  They really are easy and super cute.

Cherry, Pumpkin, & Apple Pie - created by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comI searched high and low for an easy pie box but came up short. I hope you find my version of the pie box simple and easy. Best part is that it uses only 1 piece of cardstock. Gotta love that!  We’re all about keeping it easy around here.

  2. Cut the remaining piece down to 6″ x 2 3/4″
  3. Cut again to 6″ x 2 3/4″
  4. This will leave you with 6″ x 3″
  5. Cut (1) of the 6″ x 2 3/4″ pieces down to 4 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ – score at 1/2″ and 2 1/4″

  7. Cut the 6″ x 3″ pieces down to 5 1/2″ x 3″ –  score at  1/2″ and 2 1/4″, score both short ends at 1″

  6. rosemarie says:

    thanks for your videos!!! your ideas keep me coming back. the best part you share the measurements!!! so frustrating seeing something then having to guess the sizes. keep the surprises coming to my in box!

    • Connie says:

      Thanks Rosemarie! I agree – nothing worse than finding a project you REALLY love and want to make only to find no instructions or measurements. I appreciate your comment. 🙂

  7. denise says:

    Love this idea! I don’t have the pennant die yet so I might try it by cutting out my own triangles. I could see putting wrapped chocolate covered cherries in the cherry pie box!

  8. Linda hyden says:

    Absolutely Fabulous! You’re amazing going to great lengths to figure the simplest way to create the pie box. Just love it. Thank you!

  9. Maria A. Rodriguez says:

    Oh Connie, you are something else!!! This is simply AWESOME!! and not hard to do at all, your instructions are great, thanks for the measurements, I’m going to start making some of this for Christmas. I love the whip cream video, this little “dollop” is just the perfect touch to make this pie slices look so yummy!!!!!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!!!!!

  10. fita says:

    LOVED IT!!! Don’t have pennant die; can you tell us how to cut a triangle to appropriate size. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Molly says:

    connie–you may just win an award for the most sales of the pennant die now cause this project is just too. stinkin. cute! and the brilliance is how you showed the cake version. i can just envision a tray of those made up in pastels and arranged to create a ‘wedding cake’ to hold favours at a shower. or a wedding. or a birthday party…

    thank you!!!

    I did it, I did it! A cute pumpkin pie box topped with whipped cream. I received my supply order about three hours ago and I’ve already completed this sweet little project. No up-cycled napkins in my house, but the fancier paper napkins worked just as well. Thanks so much for your tutorials, Connie
