DIY: Reusable Coffee Cup Sleeve

Glitter 'N Glue DIY Glitter Coffee SleeveHi my name is Kristen and I’m a coffee addict. I started as a social drinker who only drank occasionally but now I can’t seem to function in the morning without a fresh cup of brew.  I frequent my local Starbucks so much that the staff considers me a regular and they’re all familiar with my order. Overtime I’ve seem to have collected an obscene amount of Starbucks cups and sleeves.  I thought it was time that I not only give my cup a new look but create a reusable coffee cup sleeve. Just because I have an addiction does not mean I’m not a socially conscious individual. Save a tree, use a glitter reusable coffee sleeve!

    This is really creative. I’ll have to find some glitter fabric of my own. I don’t drink coffee but it’ll work for tea too.
