Create a Cup Sleeve template by tracing a cup sleeve from your favorite coffee shop. Use that template to cut a cup sleeve from the piece of felt.
Using the template or felt sleeve as a guide, trace a strip from the 12x12 cardstock or patterned paper to run the length of the cup sleeve.
Use scissors to cut out the paper strip.
Apply adhesive to the felt piece.
Adhere the decorated strip of paper, choose some ribbons and sew it to the felt.
Once sewn down, apply embellishments.
Choose post buttons.
Pierce holes for buttons on one side of cup sleeve and hand sew the post buttons in place.
On the other end of the sleeve ,pierce two holes for each button, and thread elastic thread through the holes to make two loops for the post buttons. Slide loops over buttons and tie off elastic thread.
Slide finished felt cup sleeve onto coffee cup.
