How to make Paper Pie Boxes for Thanksgiving!Ever heard the phrase, “easy as making pie”? I’ve never quite understood it. Because I don’t think there’s anything basic or easy about baking pies. I’ve burnt my fair share of them or messed them up in some way. Which shows how bad I am at making them. Or it means, my talents lie in something very different – papercrafts. So, I’m going to use the skills I do have, and use them to make my version of pies. Though that in no way implies, I wouldn’t jump at the chance of having pie, any time of the day.
