How to Turn Your Used CBTL Cups into a Tea Goodie Box

How to Turn your CBTL Cups into a Tea Goodie Box

Hello Beautiful!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend because I do! There’s a lot of excitements going on and I was so happy that I have accomplished some of my tasks last weekend, which made me quite productive.

Remember when last month I have shared you my Starbucks goodie bag tutorial and I am so happy that it gave awesome responses from our readers worldwide, and even from Starbucks itself!

It was so good to share new DIY ideas that I believe are feasible and everyone can do it. I mean, I think we should incorporate recycling in our lifestyle because indeed it is good – it gives positive ZEN and also gives more CHI.

Last week, somebody put a CBTL brewed coffee on my desk (which means, someone is signaling he/she needs a favour) and yeah that someone knows me well. I would be a bit cringed if that person gave me a Frappuccino, LOL.

So after I’ve finished my free CBTL brewed coffee last Monday, I couldn’t help but think that it would be a shame to just throw this cups (let’s say a good gesture). And then I thought. Why not make another DIY tutorial, since I’ve also made one using Starbucks cups.

DISCLAIMER:This is not a sponsored post. Just my way of sharing my awesome knowledge in DIY crafting and you can’t stop moi. LOL

And hopefully coffee drinkers would think twice of throwing your cups or just leaving it elsewhere like crumpled papers. Ah such a headache it gives me whenever I saw coffee cups laying around abandoned on street sidewalks, parks, parking lots, etc.

It’s disgusting…

So today am going to teach you how to recycle your CBTL coffee cups into cute tea goodie box.
Kind of similar procedure with my Starbucks good bag tutorial, but more kawaii.

So after thoroughly cleaning your used CBTL coffee cups (use liquid soap), wipe it until it dries. Get ready with your pair of scissors, glue gun with glue sticks, pencil for marking, some accessories for décor, and of course your tea bags which will be the content of our tea goodie box.

Start unrolling the top part of the cups because we don’t need it.

Because we will get rid of it. Cut it out, like you get rid the bad bitches from your life, LOL

Now mark lines to your cup and cut it. These will be our cover for the goodie box.

After cutting the lines, unfold it outward just like the photo above.

Looks like a flower now, LOL. You can make the cut in any shape, but I prefer to make an octagonal shape, because number 8 will give you more LUCK :D

It’s time to put all the goodies inside the CBTL coffee box! I prefer to put some tea bags inside because I think it is quite related to the cups, LOL. But you can put anything – candies, mini make up/cosmetics, cookies perhaps, or anything that are small enough to fit inside but make sure they are dry. No liquid stuffs. It will be messy.

After making sure everything are placed carefully inside, it’s time to seal the box! Use a glue gun for to seal the box because this coffee cups are quite thick and a simple glue might be not enough to hold the lid.

It should be like this after you sealed it. Looks cute right? But we are not yet finished.

We don’t want to finished it just like this, so we will add some cuteness to this coffee goodie box.

I got some little trinkets at home, like this fabric flower that I’ve made last summer, and some extra faux leaves from my previous tutorials. I’ve glued it together with this flower accessories on top of the box.

You may also add a little card with your notes to make it more personal
