  • paper cups with lids,, hot beverage type, you will need one extra cup to use for a pattern
  • cardstock,, Valentine themed patterned and solid scrapbooking papers
  • baker's twine
  • tape runner or double sided tape
  • treats
  • shredded tissue paper
  • die cut hearts or Valentine themed stickers
  • paper straw,, pink/white or red/white (these are easily found at craft stores.)


  • Using your extra cup and your sharpest scissors, carefully cut all around the top and base about 1/4” down from the lip and 1/4" up from the base of the cup. Try to keep your edges straight and the center piece kept in one long piece. Discard the lip and base, but keep what was once the “wall” of the cup. This will be your template.
  • Using your template, trace it onto your patterned and or solid papers. *IMPORTANT* When tracing, have the good side of the paper up and the good side of the template up OR the opposite (wrong side down of the papers and wrong side down of the template). The reason this is important is because with the “curve”…the decorative papers won’t lay right when wrapped around the cup.
  • Using the traced decorative papers, wrap them around each of your cups, adhering with your double-sided tape.
  • Embellish with die cuts, baker's twine, stickers or stamped images.
  • Fill with shredded tissue and treats.
  • Secure with the lid and add the cute paper straw for a fun finishing touch!
