I made this bag of goodies for my UPS delivery person! If it wasn't for them we would not have our goodies! I got a knock on the door and big smile and a Happy Thank you from my young man!
It makes my heart smile to share!!

Christmas Cup

 As promised, here are the directions for this cup. Please bear with me as this is my first Tutorial
Supplies Needed
Neutral colored Card Stock..( I used Sahara Sand) 81/2 x 51/2
Score board or the score tab on your paper cutter
Tear-n-Tape or Fast Fuse adhesive
Washi tape of your choice


with the 51/2 side at the top of your score tool, score at 2inches

Turn the card stock 90* and score at 2,4 and 6 inches but only go to that 2 inch score mark.  At the 8 inch mark score all the way down.
 
Add strong adhesive JUST UNDER  the 2 inch score mark put adhesive over the last 3 tabs and just above the bottom add adhesive (tear-n-tape used here)
 Add adhesive to tab on left from top to 2 inch score mark 

cut away far left small tab 
cut tabs on bottom cutting thru tear-n-tape 
starting at right side end take tape off and roll onto next tab
continue "rolling " cup bottoms
take tape off inside tape and tuck inside cup 

For handle cut a piece of card stock 1/2 x 11 
Put adhesive tape from one end to the 31/2 mark, on the other end put adhesive tape from 3inch to the end 
sorry its hard to see 
Take the tape off the 3 inch end. Put this end into the cup... I put mine on the inside seam.
Take the tape off the 31/2 end, put it on the very bottom of your cup all the way to the end.
You will still have some glue showing on the inside of your handle.... just press it against the cup and Poof* Instant handle

If you would like to add washi tape or dsp do so before adding your handle. Decorate as desired.... and fill with goodies.. 
They do make up fast and make great little gifts! 
I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial... If you have any question just leave them in the comment box below... and I will try to answer them as best I can. Or email me or call me! 
Merry Christmas Crafting!

Thank you Brenda Q for posting the original tutorial!
