Paper Favor Cups

I found a fun gadget at the thrift store the other day and couldn’t wait to get it home to play with!

It’s a Pot Maker, originally made to form bio-degradable newspaper plant-starter pots for gardening. But being much more of a crafter than a gardener, I thought it would be the perfect tool for making party favor cups. Of course, you could make them for lots of purposes, but not for anything too weighty. And although I lucked out paying only a couple of bucks for mine, these are still very available online retail and on Ebay and Etsy.

There’s really not much to it, you just wrap paper around the wooden cylinder, fold the ends under and smoosh into the wooden base. Since my paper pots won’t be going into the ground, I used tape to reinforce the wrapped end of the paper on the back and another piece on the bottom. These pots form best using lightweight paper. And if you’re going to tie cute string around it, be sure to do that before you remove the paper from the form and secure it with a small bit of tape or glue on the back.

I tried out lots of different papers from gift wrap to vintage ephemera. Then I designed a cute peanut cup graphic for you to use on this project (or you can also print and fold the graphic into flat pouches for snacks as well, or wrap as a label around a can.) Just click on the graphic to access the file. You can size the art to print 2-up on letter stock. Once printed, I trimmed mine along the top edge with scalloped craft scissors.

Here are a few more ideas I came up with today, but there’s really no limit to where you can take a little favor cup!

1. Gift wrap, scallop cut and folded over at the top.

2. Ledger paper and rubber stamps

3. Book cover image that I thought would be a fun idea for snacks at your next book club meeting.

4. A vintage map and gummed office label

5. Scanned photo and salutation graphic printed to plain paper

6. School tablet paper, folded at top and given a vintage gummed star

7. Handle basket made from vintage sheet music and Washi tape.

To make the handle, simply press two pieces of tape, adhesive sides together, with the underside piece being just smaller than the top piece, leaving enough sticky at the ends for attaching to the basket sides.

8. Vintage telegraph paper

9. Kraft gift wrap cut with pinking shears and finished with Divine Twine

And the cup in the very first image is made with handwritten paper from a very old notebook and finished with a vintage postage stamp.

The great thing about this project is that you don’t have to have an actual Pot Maker to make these cute cups, any small, straight-sided jar will do. You can finish off the bottom with a large round sticker or seal.
