But you don't want your friends to feel neglected.

These paper cup gift boxes will make any gift you can afford look expensive AF (or at least slightly classier than a paper bag).

Here's what you'll need:

* Paper cups ($12.99)

* Scissors

* Ribbon ($8.99)

1. Carefully cut the rim of your paper cup ($12.99).

2. Cut eight evenly spaced slits on the top of your cup.

The slits should be about an inch long.
