Y’all who doesn’t love pie? What about pie to-go? what about pie to-go in cute little card stock boxes that you can make to match your event colours? Okay good, glad we’re on the same page. Also, before I go any further, I’m hosting a giveaway for a Cricut Explore Air 2 bundle, so if you’re squirming in your seat thinking about that, skip to the bottom for details, but don’t forget to come back and check out the post! Back to pie. I originally saw this little DIY in a Friendsgiving post on Brit.co // here // and they included a free printable for the box, so I uploaded it to my Cricut Design Space and got to work.

Don’t forget I’ve got a complete guide to the Cricut Explore Air 2 on the blog. You can read it // here //
Step 1: Upload this printable to your Design Space account and save it as a cut file. If you need any help figuring that you, you can check-out my tutorial // here //
Step 2: Using your Cricut Explore Air 2 (or just a pair of scissors – but trust me, it’s a million times faster with your Cricut) cut the outline of the take away pie box.
Step 3: You’ll need a ruler for this, or at least if you want clean lines. Using a ruler, fold the card stock along all the dotted lines in the graphic from Step 1.
Step 4: Using a glue stick, apply glue to the folded flaps and assemble. Make sure you hold eacb piece for a few seconds as you go to ensure that everything sticks.
Step 5: Cut a vinyl decal to apply to the take away pie box. I used the Gregory Font front dafont.com and wrote-up “pie” so feel free to use the image below for your own project.
The weeding may take a while with all the small cuts, but it’s worth it. You can also use the negative space from the word as a variation. Notice how there are two versions of “pie” below? It’s all from one cut yo.
Step 6: Reinforce the joints on the take away pie boxes as needed, and stack them for your party.
