R2-D2 Cups

R2-D2 CupHere’s a fun little printable if you have a need for R2-D2 cups (like I do for an upcoming Star Wars party).

I found these small, white coffee cups and lids at a local restaurant supplier. I didn’t need all 50, but the price wasn’t too bad and I figured I’d send them to work with my husband and maybe save some for the colder days when cocoa and hot cider is being consumed daily.

I’ve seen a version of this cute little cup online somewhere, and first tried drawing one by hand. It was okay. But I didn’t want to sit and draw 20 little cups when I have many other things to get done. Plus it was a bit shaky drawing on curved surfaces.

So I decided to create these stickers out of the white shipping labels I had on hand. Now I can direct my husband to cut them out and stick them on, while I get something else done!!

R2-D2-beforeThey are sized for 8 oz. solo coffee cups. Print on Avery label #5264, that has six labels per sheet, each label is 3 1/3 x 4 inches. I used the white labels. Clear would probably work, but I’m not sure if the margins are the same. Be sure to print a sample on a normal sheet of paper to see if your margins will match up. And set your printer’s margins to “0” all around.

Each sheet makes FOUR cups.

Oh! And don’t forget the striped paper straw. I got mine for a dollar a pack at our craft store (part of a circus party set) Happy Star Wars planning!!
