Hello Kitty Cup Holder Tutorial

I figured out how to make one of these cute cup holders and thought I would share the tutorial to all of my fellow bloggers out there. Let me know if this is confusing.

What you will need:

2 pieces of 11"x4" cardstock
2 pieces of 11"x3½" cardstock (same color as above)
corner rounder
sticky tape or two-sided tape

Take the two 11"x4" pieces of cs and score at 3" (both pieces)

Corner round the longer side, the shorter side will be the bottom. Put these pieces to the side.

Take the two 11x3½ pieces and score at ½" and 3½ then flip and do the same to the other side.

Score the entire length of both pieces at ½".

Fold at all the creases.

Now cut at each fold in a using a triangle-like cut as pictured below (this will make the bottom look better, you will see later on).

Your two pieces should look like this. Put these two to the side.

Take your first two pieces (11"x4") and punch out the handles using your oval punch. My oval punch wont punch through the two pieces of cs, so I had to do one at a time. This should be done to the end with the rounded corners. Attach the two pieces together back to back with the 3" flaps sticking out.

Your two pieces should look like this.

Take your two 11"x3½ pieces and put two-way tape on the end creases.

Attach to the 11"x4" piece. Repeat on the other side to form the box.

Should look like this. Repeat on the other side.

Using two-way tape, attach all the bottom scored edges to form the box. Repeat on the other side.

The bottom should resemble this on both sides.

There you go! Here is the cup holder.

I bought these coffee cups with tops at Longs and I filled them with snowman soup ingredients (Hot Cocoa, Kisses, Peppermint Balls, and marshmallows).

I put a Hello Kitty head on the front and wrapped it in cellophane and will be giving this to my BFF, Joy, as a little rak. Let me know if any of this is confusing and I would love to see what you come up with. Have a wonderful week!
