Introduction: Cardboard Pie Box
Around the holidays it's handy to have ways to transport foodstuffs. Pies are fairly difficult to keep in one piece, I find. So I designed a sturdy folded box you can use to store two 10" pie plates in.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cardboard Template
Acquire some cardboard. I used a large box that I received some gifts in. You'll need two sheets, one about 20"x30" and another about 15"x20".
Use the template below to determine how to cut, fold and tape your box.
Step 2: Fold!
Once you have the cardboard cut you can start folding the box. Critical parts of the box are folded in such a way so that the cardboard is doubled, giving more support.
I made a miniature replica to demonstrate the folding technique.
Step 3: Finish
And there you have it. You should end up with something more or less like the box in the photo below! Enjoy!
