Artist Transforms Coffee Cups into Whimsical Objects and Scenarios

Cuppaday

Before you throw that used coffee cup away, take some inspiration from Australian designer and architect, Paul Garbett. He turns seemingly useless paper cups into beautiful and adorable works of art.

Called “Cuppaday,” Garbett’s project is clearly only limited by his imagination. Often with the help of small figurines, he’s created everything from a cup-turned-venus-fly-trap to slices of salami. Garbett has also managed to construct a scene of protesters in front of a smoke factory and a shrine of ramen noodles, all starting with just a single paper coffee cup.
