Thanksgiving Leftovers Pie Box & Labels – Silhouette America Blog

Thanksgiving Leftovers Pie Box & Labels

Let me show you why I love this pie box, and then we will talk labels… the box itself opens flat so you can put down a piece of parchment or wax paper and add a slice of pie with ease.

Then,  just lift up the sides and place the lid on top.

I added the printable label and a bit of simple twine to finish it off and to hold the top and bottom together.

Now for the labels… If you’ve downloaded and opened your free shape already, you may have noticed that my label is a different color. Changing the color is super easy to do, which means you  can customize them to fit your holiday décor.

 

To change the colors, first ungroup the shape and open the fill color window. With one part of the label selected, click on the color you want to change it to. Easy peasy!

Then, use the type tool to add the text to your labels and fill the text using the fill color window.

Next, open the page window and select letter size. Then, open registration marks window and turn them on.

Once you’ve turned on the registration marks, duplicate and arrange the labels to fill the page making sure to stay inside the red outline and the grey hashmarks. Then you are all set to print! {an easy way to duplicate a shape : select all of it by dragging your mouse across it, then click ctrl+c to copy and ctrl+v to paste {command if you are using a mac}}

 

I used the Silhouette clear sticker paper for my labels, but if you don’t have sticker paper… Draw a small circle at the top of each label shape, print/cut them out of cardstock and create tags instead!
