In preparation for the summer months I am making some cute drinking cups for family get-togethers and a braai or two with friends – and these just happen to be perfect for a hot and balmy summer’s evening. Plastic cups can be so boring but with a little craftiness and a few gorgeous summery patterned papers you can create fun and fabulous pieces.
What I did…
Purchased some plastic cups with lids from our local plastic shop and decorated them using Lady Pattern Paper. I also found some fun matching paper straws to support my summer theme.
Punch various sized circles from your selected Lady Pattern Paper.
Punch a small hole in the circle for the top of your lids that the straws will go through.
Print some circles with a fun summer theme and punch layering circles out of Lady Pattern Paper and plain cardstock.
Adhere the circles together in a layered fashion and then adhere them to the front of the plastic cups for a fun and festive look.
These festively decorated cups are perfect for kid’s parties, informal get-togethers and the family braai. Decorate them with different colours and themes.
The Lady Pattern Paper, Basic Essentials, Script, Pink Mary is perfect for these lemonade water cups – it truly makes me want to drink more water – the perfect healthy summer alternative.
