Dessert Party Favors

Martha Stewart Living, November 2007

Leftover dessert doubles as guest favors when packaged in boxes that are as pretty as, well, pie. Photocopy template at 400 percent; trace onto card stock. Cut out the image with scallop scissors along scalloped edges and regular scissors on solid lines. With a straightedge and a bone folder, score paper along dotted lines. Fold along scored lines, and secure tabs with double-sided tape. Line box with parchment paper, place a slice inside, and tie on a tag.

    This is a great idea. The problem is that you have to scale the drawing manually and many people don't have the ability to edit .pdfs. I hope someone will replace this template with one that is already scaled.

    I love this idea. Leftovers often go to wast in my house and this is a perfect way to make sure they are used.

    To me, this is the opposite of "cheesy", I would think any guest would think it would be awesome to take something homemade home in something homemade! I think it is a wonderful idea. Now if I could just get my pecan pies to set up!

    What a lovely idea. A personal touch goes a long way and it's better than sending someone home with tupperware.

    Well, noubar, I'm glad my Thanksgiving dinner is never so formal that sending a slice of pie home in a nice box would be considered "cheesy".

    Not so thrilled about the idea...this is perfect for informal setting, but for a formal one just a bit cheesy!

    I made these last year, and they worked great. I did enlarge the pattern another 10% for a lid, but then cut the sides down to only 1 inch. I used a scalloped rotary cutter to speed things up. I also cut and scored a bunch of them, and put on the double stick tape with a piece of sticker-back paper over it, so they could stay flat until needed, and still be easy to put together. I keep the "kit" in a ziploc with squares of parchment paper, ready to assemble and fill.

    I love this idea! It let's guest know that you have thought of sharing with them and made extra effort to send it home in a very tasteful manner. Really creative!

    I would definitely try this. Other Martha Stewart food packaging I've tried have been really efficient. A slice protected this way is the perfect take home gift.

    Great idea! I have several friends that this wouild be a perfect idea for. A whole pie would be too much, but one slice is just right!

    This is a great idea for weddings as well, instead of using bags that I have seen before. I think the idea from craftfut is great to use the template in different sizes and have one for a top to the boxes.

  • 14 Nov, 2007

    I think I would like to try making two boxes of slightly different size so that the larger will fit over the top as a lid. But I'm glad to have the template - genious!

    That is just about the cutest idea I have seen in a long time. Alter the template slightly and use it for cake too. Print and scallop cut little tags with contrasting or matching colors and use embroidery ribbon instead of string and make it festive.
