If you drink a lot of takeout coffee and feel bad about tossing out the paper coffee cup, here's a way to reuse these and make a neat Advent calendar. Great idea for the office, no? I found this 'calendar' on the website of the German magazine, Living at Home that I blogged about last year. In case you missed that one, you can find it here.
The instructions are fairly straightforward as you can work these out from the photo. Here is my version:
Clean and dry your empty takeout coffee cups and create a unique Advent calendar. Cover the outside of the cups with any colourful leftover wrapping paper, then fill the cups with chocolates, vouchers (lotto tickets??) or other small giftss. Replace lid and tie a ribbon on with a number label (or simply write a number right on the cup). There are lots more Advent calendar ideas at this website. Go here to take a gander.
