Wishing each of you a very happy Thanksgiving. We are grateful for each and every one of you!
Who’s ready for pie? Thanksgiving dinner wouldn’t be complete without having a slice of handmade Pumpkin Pie made with fresh ingredients from Pebbles. Today, Design Team Member Renee Zwirek is sharing a fun pie paper favor box craft.
You can make these pie slices as party favors for your holiday guests or as a hostess gift. It looks adorable, fun, and has a sweet surprise inside! You can fill it with just about anything: popcorn for the kids, a gift card for a holiday birthday, or a wonderful thank you note.
No fancy tools needed for this project. I started by making my own template for the paper pie slice. You can make your template any size that you prefer.
This template is used for both the top and bottom slices of the pie. So, once you have made your template, you’ll need to cut out two pieces from either cardstock or pattern paper. I’m using white cardstock as the base for my pie slice and then I’ll wrap it with the pattern paper I chose. I did it this way because I wanted to use a pattern paper from the Thirty-One line and did not want the skulls on the reverse side to show inside the pie.
I added the adhesive on the flaps that I folded in and put it all together.
Now I have a top and a bottom that fit perfectly together.
I wrapped the bottom piece of the pie using the orange chevron pattern as my pumpkin filling. I wrapped the top piece of the pie using the book pattern as my whipped topping.
I cut out some leaves from a variety of pattern papers. Then, I striped, dotted, and painted the leaves using Zazz! Glitter Glue for some pretty sparkle.
I attached a Mini Clothes Pin and an “I’m thankful” sentiment banner along with the leaves to the top of the pie. I tied it all up with some Glitter Ribbon.
