Not bad for a first instructable, the pictures are clear and structured, so well done on that. You do, however, need more detailed instructions to make it easier to follow your steps. Don't try to let the pictures do too much talking, even if they are worth a thousand words! Adding tags to the pictures can help too - just click and drag on your picture to make a yellow box, then type in your comment. Also, you might want to do a quick search in future, as this exact type of paper cup has been done before on here. That isn't a problem if you are providing improved / clearer instructions or a variation, but yours is far less detailed than the other one, so adds nothing to it. Don't take this as 'nasty' criticism, I am just providing constructive feedback to help you improve on your next instructable!

I believe you could make this more secure by putting the pale-blue flap inside the top-most purple fold. I hope I'm not too hard to understand, I'm tired and since I'm not english, I'm not sure I use the good vocabulary to describe what I mean.

Nevermind, apparently this guy ( already made an instructable with just what I meant in it. Sorry for the bother.
