DIY: Fun & Festive Cup Identifiers

When I was growing up, my relative Debra always drank out of a plastic cup with a rubber band around it. I totally thought it was weird, but as a young kid, I never asked WHY she did it. Several years ago on a visit to see her in Minnesota, I noticed that she still did it. I finally asked her why.

The answer was simple -- she wanted to be able to identify her drinking glass so she didn't keep using new ones. Genius!

Today over at DIY...Your Way, I'm sharing a simple way to create your own Fun & Festive Cup Identifiers. It's a super-inexpensive way to enforce your party theme or decor in a functional way. Even if you're not having a party, cup identifiers can help you cut down on the number of glasses that your family uses in a given day. Stop by and check it out!

This is amazing! We have a lot of extended family that we entertain frequently and this would be perfect! We've been using sharpie's to write our names on cups, but do you know how sharpies stink? And it rubs off after a while, especially with a cold cup. I am going to make these! Thanks!

Oh, I'm so glad that this idea will be helpful to your family! I bet the kids would enjoy helping to make them too.
