Paper Coffee Cup

Here is the coffee cup that we made in my Advanced card class last month.

The original  idea came from Lorraine Rowland from Launceston . Hers had six side but I changed mine into eight sides to give it a more rounded effect.

Some of the lady,s in my class loved this cup and thought that it would make a great gift for someone at Christmas or birthday, filled with specialty Tea bags or coffee sachet or hot chocolate and  mini marshmallows.
