Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need


You just need a toilet paper tube. For decoration you need some colored paper or photos from a magazine. I used comic strips from a newspaper.

You also should have scissors and paper glue at home.

Thats all! Klick "Next Step" to see how to make!

Step 3: Decorate Your Eggcup

  1. Cut out a strip of colored paper, a comic strip, a photo or whatever you like. It should be a bit bigger then the cutted cardboard tube.
  2. Cover the backside all over with paper glue. I used a glue stick for this.
  3. Glue your decoration around the cardboard tube.
  4. Bend the overlapping decoration inside the tube.
  5. Thats it!
