    You have zero dollars to spend on gifts this season.


    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.

    3. Carefully fold your eight flaps into the cup.
