If you have not seen the new Cup Characters from LD, click HERE to see them now. They are too cute!!
As soon as I saw them, I couldn't wait to cut them out. Alas! What cup size should I use? A quick check with LD revealed that they got their cups from Cash & Carry. Luckily there is one down the road from my home so off I went.
|Yikes! So many cups at Cash & Carry!|
The smallest size cups and lids that I found at the store were the 8oz cups. They also had the 4oz and 6oz cups and I got those too even though they did not have the lids.
The 8oz cups came in a pack of 50 and were on sale for only $1.95! The regular price is $2.29 so that's not too bad. The lids came in a pack of 100 and was $3.49 (regular price).
I wished that they had the lids for the 4oz and 6oz cups too because the smaller size cups are so cute! I love giving out bags full of goodies and found that the 8oz cups are a perfect alternative to the standard treat bags.
I used Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to cut these cup characters out and noticed that I did not need to make any adjustments to the cutting files. If you are using a cup size that is smaller or larger than 8oz, you will need to reduce or enlarge the files accordingly.
I bought my 8oz cups and lids from Cash & Carry but I have also seen them at the Costco Business Center. You may also find them at your local restaurant supply stores but give the stores a call before heading out because I have found that some places (like Dick's Restaurant Supply in Bellevue, WA) do not carry disposable items.
