Easy romanic moment in 10 minutes!
Few days ago, I read an article talking about the waste problem cause by the disposal of non-recyclable takeaway coffee cups in New Zealand and that urged us at Maru Store to try come up with craft ideas to recycle them ...until all cafes are using eco-friendly cups (even better if we all start using our own tumblers). The question is how can we turn these coffee cups into something appreciable with the use of washi tapes?

We were not happy with the ordinary DIY ideas, like flower pots and storage cases. After a few days of testing and crafting, we came up with a simple, yet cute and romantic craft tutorial to share with you. In 4 simple steps, you can turn your coffee cups into a cute washi tape candle light lamp!

    Wrap the paper cup with washi tape of your choice.

    Tip: The tapering of the cup makes it hard to keep the washi tape flat. Tape around the cup with 2 separate pieces will help.
