DIY 'La Dolce Vita' Party Candy Cup with Carry Handle | October 28, 2009

Whether used for favours or simply as a cup that guests can use to collect their own selection of treats from your party's candy buffet, the festive colours in this cup design allow for use at any occasion- parties, weddings or even the upcoming Christmas and holiday season. "La Dolce Vita" - Italian for "The Sweet Life" is a somewhat fitting title for a cup with a solitary life purpose to contain lots of delicious candy- No? Continue for more pics, ideas and to download your free paper cup cover design!


Print out the design onto plain white 80 gsm paper, cut out with scissors and wrap around a standard 9 oz paper cup. (I've acquired mine from Spotlight. It is preferable to opt for a light coloured cup so that it doesn't show through the cover.)  Use double sided tape to attach. Puncture two small round holes in each side for your string or ribbon handle.

If you're using the cup to complement your candy buffet perhaps place a tiny wooden scoop inside for guests to collect their own selection of sweet treats.

To personalise the cups, I've made tiny manila swing tags which I recycled from manila folders. They're so simple to make! Cut out your shape with a scalpel, attach a mini white dot sticker (available at most newsagents) and punch in the center with small round craft punch. Use your tag to write a little message to your guests.

For presentation at your party consider hanging your cups along rope or twine.

Italian String purchased from Est Australia in Hawthorn. Tiny wooden scoops from Market Import in Armadale. Mini pegs from Kikki K. Red and White Peppermint Bullseyes from The Original Lolly Shop in Canterbury.

An alternative presentation idea is to hang your cups off some decorative branches.
