Instead of messing up your kitchen, why not make an apple pie with the Cutie Pie Thinlits™ Dies? I’ve been thinking about using the favor/treat box to represent a pie rather than the adorable Cake Slice Boxes I’ve been making before. Of course the pie would have to be deep-dish (very deep dish) and the crust would have to be thick enough to hold the filling.
I used Kraft 12” x 12” Card Stock for the pie slice box and Cajun Craze scraps for the “pie crust bow” and scalloped trim that represents the fluted edges. The bow and the fluting are, of course, well-coated with cinnamon, sugar and butter to get that nice deep color!
To make it easy on yourself, die-cut the two halves of the box with your Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Magnetic Platform, then adhere one half to the other so that the box lays flat. Use 3” x 3” or larger Post-It™ Notes or other removable notes and cover the sides and end of the rectangular areas so that you have about 1/4” or less unstamped. Make sure you turn the box around when you stamp inside the notes so your “filling” will be going the same direction on both sides.
I stamped the filling with the Work of Art Stamp Set and the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad. A border stamp from the Sweet Stack Stamp Set created rows of “slices” with the Cajun Craze Classic Stampin’ Pad. I used the Work of Art Set again to add Cajun Craze zig-zags to the top pie crust.
Wouldn’t this make a fun gift box for your favorite pie-lover?
