A blast from the past! I first made this 5 years ago, and I’ve popped the original video further down the post. This a great way of gifting money, small treats or a gift card in a fun way.

I have chosen to stamp my mugs but you could of course use patterned paper to decorate as well, I’ve popped the measurements below. For those if you who find the base bit a little bit tricky ( it can be fiddly, just add an extra 1/2″ to the width measurement and the base.) I’ll pop that revised measurement down below as well, it will give you a small overlap which will help.

My original video!


Card 10 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ (if you want a less fiddly base use 10 3/4″ x 6″)
score at 1 1/2″ with the short side at the top (or 2″ if you want a less fiddly base)
Stamp your Mug
with the 10 3/4″ at the top score at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 3 3/4″, 5″, 6 1/4″, 7 1/2″, 8 3/4″ and 10″

If you would like to decorate with patterned paper instead of stamping, you will need eight pieces 1″ x 3 3/4″
