- Cricut machine
- Cricut Design Space software
- Cardstock or patterned paper
- Double-sided tape or glue
- Bone folder
- Ribbon or twine (optional)
- Pie slices or any other treats to fill the boxes
Step 1: Download and Prepare the Template
Visit The Poker Club at West Houston's blog at tpcwesthouston.com/blog/diy-pie-slice-box-cricut-template and download the free Cricut pie slice box template. Import the template into your Cricut Design Space and adjust the dimensions as desired.
Step 2: Cut the Box Shape
Secure your chosen cardstock or patterned paper on a cutting mat and load it into your Cricut machine. Follow the instructions on the Cricut Design Space to cut out the pie slice box shape. Make sure to cut enough slices to accommodate your desired number of treats.
Step 3: Score and Fold
Using a bone folder or any other scoring tool, carefully score along the dotted lines of the cut-out box shape. This will make it easier to fold the box neatly and create crisp lines. Once scored, gently fold along the lines to form the box shape.
Step 4: Assemble the Box
Apply double-sided tape or glue to the designated areas of the box template. Join the sides together, ensuring a secure bond. Repeat this step for all the remaining pie slice box templates.
Step 5: Decorate and Fill
Let your creativity shine by decorating the pie slice boxes. You can add personalized labels, ribbons, or any other embellishments that suit your event's theme. Once decorated, fill each box with a delicious pie slice or any other mouthwatering treats you desire.

Take your pie slice boxes to the next level with these creative theme ideas:
- Holiday Flavors: Fill the boxes with seasonal pies like pumpkin pie for Halloween or pecan pie for Thanksgiving.
- Mini Pies: Create mini pie slice boxes to showcase an assortment of flavors like apple, cherry, and key lime.
- Game Night Delights: Coordinate the box decorations with your favorite card games, such as poker chips or playing card motifs.
- Custom Labeling: Personalize each box with the names of your guests or betting terms for an extra touch of customization.
