How to Make a Paper Cup

I show how to make a basic paper cup. It is easy to make but when folding try to make the edges as straight as possible for best results. The origami cup is a traditional and popular design. If you make it with a plastic coated or grease proof paper you can actually use it to retain water and not have the water taste like paper. If you don’t have any water resistant paper you can use thicker paper or double the paper up. It can be useful for holding small objects or snacks.

    I forgot about these paper cups. Thanks for sharing! I think I'll make some to keep in the bathroom as I hate having a scuzzy real cup hanging out in the bathroom for too long, but I get so thirsty!
