The amount of time we spend visiting coffee joints has led to many, many coffee sleeves. Like any good crafter, I save just about anything cardboard with an interesting shape because we could always put it to use one day, right?! So, with that said here comes a fun an easy craft using items you probably already have on hand. You could even use these as fun place cards for your kid guests!
What you will need:
Egg carton cut
White card stock
First you will need to detach the coffee sleeve so that you can turn it inside out. Hot glue it together so that the cardboard part shows.
Cut an egg carton so that you have two “prongs” sticking up. You will need to trim around the edges. The two prongs are going to hold your straws.
Squeeze your egg carton into the coffee sleeve (pinch it together and then let it go once inserted).
Cut 3 different rectangles making one very large, one medium and the other small. Punch holes in the bottom and top of each of these.
Slide the sails you just created over the straws. Place the straws into the holes in the egg carton (you may need to make the holes bigger with scissors).
Write names on the front sail and place on the table!
