coffee sleeve

have you ever seen those fancy sleeves you can purchase to dress up your paper coffee cups? here is a simple tutorial featured in parents magazine that will allow you to make these delightful sleeves at home! get your kiddies involved and let them feel like they helped you make something super special for that favorite drink you sip every morning! 

here is what you'll need:

1. scissors
2. two buttons 
3. hot glue gun
4. colorful sock
5. felt 

step #1

cut your sock so it is approximately 4 inches in length.

your sock should look similar to this. 

step #2

cut a 1/4in x 3in strip of felt slicing the ends to give the appearance of a mini scarf. 

step #3

arrange your buttons and mini scarf how you like and hot glue them down.


simply slide the sleeve on to your paper cup and your done! 

so easy and positively darling. 
you can also make this a festive holiday delight by using a christmas themed sock!
