DIY 'Je t'aime' coffee cup wrappers | February 11, 2011

Wouldn't it be cute to surprise a loved one on Valentine's morning (or any morning for that matter) with a cup of coffee for the road that literally says 'I love you'?  With this concept in mind I designed these love-themed wrappers that can be used to dress up a disposable coffee cup. The perfect romantic gesture for the caffeine obsessed!

Ok, so there's a bit of a catch. The template is based on the Chinet 285 ml thermal cups. They are orange in colour and I can't seem to find them on the Chinet website. Unfortunately, these were the only ones I could find at the local Coles! So apologies in advance if the template doesn't work, or needs some tweaking, to fit onto your own cups.

Print the designs onto thick glossy photo paper, cut out with scissors, wrap around cup and attach with double-sided tape.

Oh, and if your significant other ain't that crazy about coffee, you could always fill it with hot cocoa instead!

    I was wonderng if I could ask a favor. I absolutely love these. I'll be having a breakfast wedding (different I know) and would love ot have these on the styrofoam cups during the "cocktail hour". However, I was hoping to have our wedding colors incorporated, which are eggplant, silver, grey and white. What are the chances of having the shoes, dress and flags a different color. Even 3 shades of purple for the flags, black shoes for the guy, purple dress for girl and grey/silver heels. If the girl could wear a wedding dress instead that would be perfect, it would be like my fiance and I and maybe our wedding date in the heart - March 23, 2013. Ok now I'm REALLY expecting much, if I knew how to change it myself I would. I absolutely love these. And if the heart was in one of our colors that would also be an added bonus. And if I'm totally insane for even asking, just ignore me :-)
  66. These are totally gorgeous Amy!
    We re-published them with a link to you on our Israeli Facebook blog "Chicbox" :
