    Forget last comment. Clicking the above took me directly to the wooden paper cups. I had originally seen these in the magazine and manually typed in their website, but no "wooden paper cups" showed up when I searched their shop.

    I would love to make these, but does not seem to sell the wooden paper cups. I have tried to google and find another source without success. Does anyone know where I can purchase them?
