When it comes to crafting with our kids, some of the best ideas that they enjoy the most are actually made from the simplest things. Of course, they’re kids with wild imaginations, so the more unconventional those simple crafting “tools” are, the better. Lately, they’ve been inexplicably obsessed with making things out of paper cups and we’re more than happy to oblige them since those are affordable and totally fun to work with.
Paper cup gift boxes
Are you a big fan of making your friends little gifts and trinkets on special occasions, but you always find things with lots of small parts or very small things more difficult to wrap effectively while still looking cute? In that case, you’re going to love the way wrapped their gifts in a paper cup so that everything stays all together at once! Of course, you still want things to look cute and be fun to open, so check out how they used twisted patterned paper and ribbons or strings to give the whole thing some decorative element.
Paper cup tissue holder
Do you often find yourself in need of tissues while you’re driving in the car, but you always have your family in the seats and don’t really have anywhere to put a box of tissues that’s convenient? In that case, try making yourself a tissue holder that can sit in one of your spare cup holders instead! We love this paper coffee cup design that lets you simply pull tissues out the top so that they pull the next one up for easy access, just like in a store bought box.
