First measure the height of your cup.

Add 4cm, measure on your box and cut.

Cut off the bottom part of the bottle.

If it has rough edges, you can sand it a little (not nessesary)

Step 4: Preparing Filter

Fit the filter into the bottle, fold it in so it fits.

Then put the bottle into the hole (the cross) you made before. You first have to push in the the cross. If the cross is too small cut it bigger.
