Mini Loaf Paper Liners
These mini loaf paper liners work really well to wrap and store loaves. I used them to wrap up my banana bread with lime glaze and coconut recipe, the recipe is special enough for simple gift giving. I also find the paper liners prevent the mini loaves from getting crushed.
My favorite kitchen supply store had mini loaf pan liners at $6.00 for 4 pans, so I didn’t grab any. I have not come across any inexpensive ones so I came up with this template. It took 30 minutes to make paper boxes for the banana bread after I had made the template.
You can make these on your silhouette machine, but not everyone has one, so this time I decided to go traditional.
You will need:[wc_row][wc_column size=”one-half” position=”first”]
paper for the template
card stock paper
ruler[/wc_column][wc_column size=”one-half” position=”last”]
Measure the dimensions inside the pan. My mini loaf pans are 8″ long by 5 1/2″ wide, and 1 5/8″ deep.
Mark the dimensions on plain paper. Cut out the outside dimensions.
Fold and form creases along all the markings.
Cut slots that I have marked with X.
Fold the end pieces outside the long piece, and test fit the template to your pan, make adjustments if needed.
Transfer the template to the wrong side of the card stock. Fold back corners and mark out the corner squares.
Cut to size, remove corners, make folds with creases.
Make fancy cuts along outside edges. (optional)
Punching Holes in the Mini Loaf Paper Liners
Fold paper in half lengthwise being careful not to crease, cut the first 2 punch holes.
Unfold and use placement to make the four remaining punch holes.
Your box will look something like this.
Starting from the front left hole, weave the string front to back. You will end with the string going back to front in the right front hole.
Place your loaf into a box, tie the string tightly with a little bow.
I hope you think they are as pretty as I do.
