Day 17 - Reuse, Recycle & Rethink.

Day 17 - Reuse, Recycle & Rethink.

Day 17 - Hum, it is one of those days. It's grey outside. It's cold outside. It's a day that we need a hot beverage. @Starbucks anyone? Ah, Starbucks or any premium coffee equivalent is such a lovely treat but who else has guilt about the waste one cup of take-a-way hot beverage can produce? Well, what can we do but create treasure from our trash. Here is one idea, a coffee cup flower.  

Step 1: Rinse and dry out the paper coffee cup.

Step 2: At the top of the cup, cut a straight vertical line until there is 1 inch left between the bottom of the cup and the end of the cut. Continue to make straight vertical line cuts half-inch (1/2) apart all the way around the cup to make the strips.

Step 3: Take the first strip and tuck it under the base of the neighbor strip. Use the fold at the top of the cup to anchor the strip. Repeat.

Step 4: Enjoy your flower. You can use it as a candy dish, small shallow planter, paper clip holder or just a flower!

Hum. Now what can we make from the plastic coffee cup top and paper sleeve? Any thoughts?
