Cherry Pie with The Cutting Cafe

Today our challenge is to come up with creative ways to use the new Pie Slice Box.  The file comes with two box size with options for the top and sentiments.  Here’s what I decided to make using the larger box:

I happened to have a cherry themed digital patterned paper, so I filled the panel with it and then created a mat using the offset in my Silhouette.  The cardstock for the pie box was color matched to the green in the paper…I used Coastal Cabana by Stampin’ Up.  Won’t this make the cutest way of saying thank you?  Of course, no one would want to eat anything I baked; consequently, I will have to find a bonafide baker and pass it on.

The scalloped side panels are included with the file.  I embossed them with a Heart embossing folder and ran a 1/8″ ribbon around the top.

I attached the same ribbon to the tag I made and matted on a scalloped oval.

The lid has two flaps which slip into the box, holding it in place.  Here’s a picture of the box, opened.   All set for a piece of cherry pie!

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the design team comes up with for this challenge.  Since we have an incredibly talented team, I’m always eager to see the fruits of their labor and especially some great videos.  Leave a comment when you visit for a chance to win three free The Cutting Cafe files of your choice.  No cutting machine?  No problem!  All the files come complete with a .pdf so you can also cut them by hand.  Sweet!

Next month, we’ll be sharing two more challenges; so stay tuned.  While I’m sharing food holders, did you see the treat cup I made for the October challenge?  Here it is.

      Gail, you wouldn’t want to eat it if I made the pie, lol. I am definitely NOT a baker. I gave this little box to a friend who will do it justice with her baking so it all worked out! We’re happy you’re on our team!
