Also an acceptable reason I think to have to have (and eat) lots of chocolates so the paper cup things will be liberated for art!
I saw some similar items in a shop and thought they were really lovely. I like to support fellow artists especially when they inspire me and so I thought maybe I'd get one as a special treat. But, when I found out they were $120 I thought, I can make one of those myself, for free.
So I came home and made a few. They're very different from the ones I saw but I did borrow the idea. I figure that since I can't afford to show my enthusiasm by purchasing the artwork I might as well go for the highest form of compliment; stealing the idea!!!
