How to… make a Paper Cup

I LOVE paper craft, as you can do it whenever wherever with whatever piece of paper you have! Get the hang of it and you can entertain your kids on a bus, a plane or in the car.

Here we have a vlog of how to make a Paper Cup, that ACTUALLY holds water. It is really easy – no “complicated” Oragami (though I think it IS originally Oragami!!). Depending on the quality of paper, it holds it for quite some time. A “normal” piece of paper found in offices holds it for EIGHT MINUTES! I timed it! How cool is that. Let it dry out and it works all over again… you can also make it to hold Pop Corn or sweets at parties..

In the video I forgot to say, that you just “squash” the bottom down, in order for them to stand!

You can teach this to any child. When I was little I used to make them ALL the time! Have a go!
