Paper Cup Valentine Card Holder Directions
This paper cup craft is lots of fun for home or school. Follow the easy steps below to learn how to make it.
STEP 1: Put stickers on the cup. Invite your child to press cute Valentine’s Day stickers onto a plain paper cup. We used pink paper cups, but of course, choose whatever color your kids (or students) enjoy!
STEP 2: Make the handle. Use a paper cutter or a ruler and scissors to cut a 1/2 inch by 8 1/2 inch strip of cardstock. Choose a color that coordinates with the paper cup and scissors. Attach the paper strip to the inside of the paper cup with a glue stick or adhesive Glue Dots. Now the cup has a handle!
STEP 3: Label the cup. Write your child’s name on the bottom of the cup with a Sharpie marker.
STEP 4: Your craft is finished! Your Paper Cup Valentine Holder is complete! Enjoy filling it with treats on Valentine’s Day!
