Tips to Make this Pie Slice Box with Cricut

  • First, download the free pie slice box cut file set. With that in hand, you’ll be able to make as many gift boxes. I make a few extras because I’m certainly not going to judge someone for taking home multiple pieces.
  • 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 assemble the box without reading all the way through the instructions first.
  • Brayer down the material to that mat. I never skip this step. If you have a dirty mat (hey, no judgement coming from me), consider taping down the outside edges, as well.
  • Verify that you have a sharp blade on your Cricut. The first time I tried to cut this, because my blade was dirty and a little dull after cutting quite a bit of craft board, the card stock pulled up from the mat and tore.
