I've lined up a couple of coffee projects this week. You like coffee, don't you? I think it's TADA! It smells wonderful and is energizing. But there are things left over after consumption, like paper cups or these cardboard sleeves:
These sleeves protect your fingers from the hot liquid
that warm up the paper cup.
I like that they're made of recycled fiber
and are compostable.
But realistically, we won't carry this around to use
for our next cup, right? So here's what I
would do to turn 'em from blah to TADA!:
TADA! I decorated it with paper cut-outs!
This one has a cherry blossom theme.
Do you like the 3-D effect?
Polka-dots are cute, too.
Ink and rubber stamps spell out a quirky request.
And here's how I would re-use them:
When giving a reusable mug as a present, I would use this sleeve in lieu of packaging it in gift wrap. I would write my message at the back, the same way baristas write your name when you order a drink.
