DIY Alphabet Cups

I have been obsessed with these paper cups ever since I saw them on The Dieline. And to be obsessed with paper cups, they really have to be good. Since they are made in Korea, read: impossible to get, I decided to make my own. First gawk with me at these…then scroll down for my DIY version!

Made by Iam Design. Can you even stand the adorable styling? Seriously, it slays me.

Now, for my humble invention…

Groupcups, sm

It’s so easy…I bought white paper party cups and made letter stickers using 8 1/2 x 11-inch label paper. I really wanted to get fancy with the cup colors and patterns, but using white cups saved me from having to painfully cut out each letter.

I actually like the myriad of options that my homemade cups provide…I can control the letters that I want and tweak the font and color for my occasion. This would be adorable for a kid’s party; either each guest gets their initial or you arrange the buffet table with a fun phrase.

You can download a PDF of my letters to make your own. If you make a set, email me pics of how you use them! I’d love to see!
