Pie Slice Box
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love pie. All kinds of pie from pumpkin pie to pecan pie to anything and everything in between. But what we don’t love is not being able to take our piece of the pie with us when it’s time to go home. Now, thanks to this simple craft, that’s no longer a worry or issue.
So, gather all your supples and let’s get started!

Tips to Make this Pie Slice Box with Cricut
- First, start by grabbing the pie slice box cut file set. With that in hand, you’ll be able to make as many gift boxes for pie that you might want to make in a lifetime! LOL!
- Make certain to follow the easy directions below to make the perfect to-go pie box. It might seem a bit complex and un-doable if you try to make the box without reading through the instructions as you go, especially the first time or two.
- You’ll want to verify that you have a good sharp blade on your Cricut, too. The first time I tried to cut this, because my blade was dirty and not sharp at all (thank you vinyl for the last few projects, but card stock has a little different need) the card stock pulled up from the mat and tore. So, clean and sharp.
How Do I Make a Pie Slice Box?
It’s actually not hard at all! Use this as a starting point and then branch off and make even more fun Cricut designs.
- 2 - 2x12” Card stock (2 per box)
- Wax paper
- Gift tags, optional
- Pie Slice Box Cut File Set
- Light Grip Mat
- Scoring Tool
- Double Sided Tape
- Cricut Machine
- Start by uploading your file to design space. Ungroup them from the layers panel. Then select the layer with the fold lines. Click on "line type" and then select "score" from the drop-down menu. Repeat for the lid and the bottom of the box. They'll be attached together later on.
- Select the score lines and the main box shape. Hit attach near the bottom of the panel. Repeat for the lid and bottom.
- Have the Cricut cut the boxes. Adjust the media type to medium card stock and load in the card stock using the light grip mat. Adjust the tool to the scoring wheel or stylus and load it into the machine once directed. Hit the go button.
- Once it has cut, unload the mat and fold the score lines.
- Put the tape on the front and back tabs the enclose the triangle and make the walls. Repeat for both box pieces.
- Attach the pieces together and add tape on the back outside flap, which is the piece with the bigger sides. Slide the flap of the lid into the bottom to attach together. The flaps will overlap and the flap of the lid with the tape will stick to the bottom one.
- Add a liner of wax paper and pop in your pie slice.
- You can add ribbon or twine for a cute touch with a gift tag, if you're so inclined. Then its time to gift that pie!
