Step 1: Use scissors to cut out two rectangles from each sheet of the blue marbled paper printable. (Each rectangle makes two mugs.) Cut the rectangle into two 2” strips and two ½” strips as shown.

Step 2: Cut and discard 1” off the length of the 2” wide strip. On the ½” wide strip, cut a length 3” long and discard the rest. I tried to use the most blue part of the strip.

Step 3: Roll the wide strip and glue into a tube. This is the main cup of the mug!

Step 4: For the thin strip, fold a ¼” flap on each end and use the glue stick to attach this onto the bigger tube as a handle. Repeat!
