Hey, Pizzazzerie readers! It’s Cara here from One Swell Studio . I’m so, so excited that Spring has finally sprung! The weather is warming up, the evenings are getting longer (hello, sunshine!), and it’s the first time this year that it’s been warm enough here in Pennsylvania to sit out on the porch.
One of my favorite porch activities is to sit down, sip some tea or lemonade, & watch my boys play in the yard. The only thing that makes it even better is having friends over to sit, sip, & watch with. Courtney’s Old-Fashioned Lemonade recipe (http://pizzazzerie.com/recipes-topic/old-fashioned-lemonade/) is seriously delicious, too! I highly recommend you try that one out.
With Spring in the air and newly budding flowers in the garden, I was inspired to create these adorable little cup wraps that are sure to brighten up your porch sitting times– whether you’re enjoying a quiet moment or hosting a small gathering of friends. The colors are fresh and cheery and pair perfectly with just about any cold, refreshing drink.
The free printable download can be found here.
All you need to get started are the following items:
- Printed cup wrapper file (I used standard printer paper as it wraps around the cup more easily than cardstock does.)
- Tape (Scotch tape is perfect!)
- Small cups (9 ounce cups from Target or Dollar Tree work really well!)
Start by cutting out the cup wrappers. There are two per page. I tried to stay inside the gray border when cutting just so all of the edges looked nice & clean. Next, holding the wrapper against the cup, secure one end to the cup with a small piece of tape. Then roll the wrapper around the cup and tape the other side in place. You’ll be left with a cute little cup that screams, “Springtime is here!”
So whatever beverage you like to sip while spending time out on your porch, I hope you enjoy making it a little prettier with these cute little wraps.
