Step 1

Building pie slice boxes takes a bit of time and patience, but it is made much easier when you use Martha Stewart's template. When you print out the template, make sure to use cardstock as it is a strong paper that will be able to hold up to a slice of pie as well as easily go through a printer. 

Once you have everything printed, cut along the dotted line borders of each template and then glue the boxes into their three-dimensional form. If you want to add a little extra pizzaz to an otherwise plain facade, try gluing on some scrapbooking paper or ribbons to add your own personal touch.

Step 2

Print out this page of treat labels onto a full page of label paper.

These labels turn the treat boxes into a personalized wedding gift to your guests.

Step 3

Carefully cut around the label lines until you have all the individual pieces separated. Then, stick each label onto a pie box.
