# 3d Cheerful CUP of COFFEE from elastic bands of Rainbow Loom Bands. Lesson 219 | Coffee CupSee details »

Video subtitles:
• 00:00: What can be better than waking up to aroma of a hot cup of coffee. Hi my name is Sergey. In case if you don’t like coffee or don’t want to make it, you can make a cup of coffee with rubber bands. Then in a sense a cup of coffee or any other drink you like will always be with you. If you use brown rubber bands to make the liquid, you will get cocoa or hot chocolate. In case if you use black rubber bands, you will get a strong hot cup of coffee.
• 00:32: Yet if you use white rubber bands, you will get steamed milk. So let us get started. Get your loom ready. The middle row has to be offset by one peg width. The open areas of the first two rows have to point to the right.
• 01:05: Whereas the open areas of the farthest row have to point to the left. We will be looping over the pegs of the middle part of the loom. We will start off by making the top of the cup. We will have the liquid of the cup on the top that looks as if it was poured into the cup. Let us fancy it is very strong coffee. That is why I am going to use black rubber bands to make the liquid. If you want to use a cup of milk, use white rubber bands. If you want to make a cup of hot chocolate, use brown rubber bands.
• 01:39: I am going to use orange rubber bands to make to the cup. We will start off with the liquid of the cup. Let us find a middle peg approximately in the middle of the loom. Let us loop two rubber bands this way diagonally from the middle peg to the peg on the left. Let us take two more rubber bands and loop them this way over the pegs of the middle row. Let us loop two more rubber bands to the outer row peg. Here is the shape we’ve got.
• 02:10: We need to make the same one to the right of this one but we need to flip it to get a “mirror reflection”. Let us loop two more rubber bands and loop two more rubbeer bands over the pegs of the middle row. Let us take two more rubber bands and loop them from the middle peg to the outer or right row peg. Now let us take twoblack rubber bands and wrap them three times over the middle peg of left shape. Let us place these two rubber bands. It is one wrap. Let us wrap it the second and the third time.
• 02:47: Now we need to loop these rubber bands. For this reason let us push the hook through the middle peg and push back the double rubber bands we wrapped three times. Then let us grab the upper double black rubber bands. In my case these double rubber bands belong to this peg. Let us grab our next double rubber bands from inside.
• 03:19: This pair of rubber bands belongs to the peg of the middle row. Finally the last pair of rubber bands we have to hook belongs to the peg of the left row. Let us push all the rubber bands down. Now we will be adding rubber bands to this part. Let me show you how to do it. First let us enlarge this part. Let us push the hook through the rubber bands to this side in order to be able to put the double rubber bands on the tip of the hook.
• 03:50: Let us slide them through the rubber bands and pull them carefully in order not to grab any needless rubber bands. Get the other part of the double rubber bands on the hook. Then stretch them to the forward peg. Let us take two more rubber bands and push the hook through here. Let us put the rubber bands on the hook. Let us also slide them through the rubber bands, get the other part of the rubber bands on the hook
• 04:21: and loop the rubber bands over this peg. Let us take two more black rubber bands, push the hook through the rubber bands, put the rubber bands on the hook slide it through the rubber bands, get the other part of the rubber bands back on the hook and loop them over this peg. This part is enlarged by three rubber bands looped to the pegs. It still not the end.
• 04:53: We need to add rubber bands to these pegs as well. For this purpose let us take two rubber bands, push the hook through the rubber bands of this peg. Grab the rubber bands, pull them through and loop them over the peg to the left of this peg. Let us push the hook through the rubber bands of this peg again. Let us take double rubber bands, put them on the hook and loop them over the peg to the right.
• 05:23: Let us take two more black rubber bands. Push the hook through the same place. Loop the rubber bands over the hook and loop them over this middle peg, having pulled off the rubber bands of this peg before. Let us loop these rubber bands instead of them. Here is how the enlarged pattern looks. Now let us add rubber bands to this peg. Let me rotate the loom in order for the other side to face us.
• 05:57: Let me take a pair of rubber bands and put them on the hook. I am sliding the through the rubber bands, getting the other part of the double rubber bands back on the hook and looping them over the peg to the right. Let me push the hook though the same place again, loop the rubber bands over the hook, slide them through and loop them over the peg to the left. Let us take a pair of rubber bands one more time. Let us push the hook through this place,
• 06:32: loop the rubber bands over the hook. We need to pull the rubber bands of this peg off the peg and loop the rubber bands we have on the hook instead. This part is also enlarged as we need. Then we moving on to making the cup with orange rubber band in my case. Let us loop them almost exactly the same way as we looped the black rubber bands.
• 07:02: Let us loop them over all the outer pegs of this part except this and this pegs. We don’t need to loop rubber bands over these pegs for now. Let us start from this peg. Let us push the hook through all the rubber bands of this peg and loop the double orange rubber bands over the hook. Let us slide them through, get the other part of the double rubber bands back on the hook having pulled the black rubber bands of this peg off this peg. Let us loop these orange double rubber bands
• 07:37: Now let us push the hook through all the rubber bands. Loop the orange double rubber bands over the hook, slide them through the bands, get the other part back on the hook. Pull the black rubber bands off the peg and loop these orange rubber bands instead of them. The let us do the same here. Let us push the hook through the rubber bands of this peg, loop a pair of orange rubber bands over the hook, pull them through,
• 08:07: pull the rubber bands looped over this peg off the peg and loop the orange rubber bands over the peg instead. As I mentioned earlier we don’t need to loop rubber bands over this peg for now. We need to loop rubber bands over these two remaining pegs. Let us take two orange rubber bands, put them on the hook , pull them though, pull the black rubber bands looped over this peg off the peg
• 08:37: and loop the orange rubber bands over the peg instead. It is finally time to deal with this peg. Let us push the hook through, put a pair of orange rubber bands on the hook, slide them through, get the other part on the hook, pull the black rubber bands looped over this peg off the peg and loop the orange rubber bands over the peg instead. Great job! We are done with this part. Now let us move on to this part. Let us rotate the loom for the sake of convenience in order to place this part to the left.
• 09:11: Now we need to grab these rubber bands. These are the rubber bands wrapped three times we looped a bit earlier. We need to stretch these double rubber bands to this peg. In order to make the process easier we need to pull the rubber bands off peg to the left. Like this. Then it will be much easier to loop these rubber bands over the peg to the right. Here is what you have to get.
• 09:41: Now we need to do the same thing that we did on the left side. First let us loop the rubber bands of these pegs. Let me rotate the loom again for the sake of my convenience. Let me push the hook through, grab the top rubber bands, pull them off the peg and loop them over the peg they belong to.
• 10:14: In my case to this peg belong to the left or closest to us row. Then let us grab the next double rubber bands from inside, pull them off the peg and loop them over the middle peg. Let us grab the last pair of rubber bands, pull it off the peg and loop over the peg it belongs to. Now let us add black rubber bands to these pegs. First let us push the hook through the rubber bands of the last peg.
• 10:45: Let me loop the double black rubber bands over the hook, slide them through and stretch them to peg that is a bit farther. Let us push the hook through the same place again, put the double rubber bands on the tip of the hook again, pull them through and loop them over this peg of the farthest row. Let us push the hook through the same place and place two black rubber bands on the hook,
• 11:16: pull them through and loop them over the peg of the closest row. Now let us hook rubber bands of this and this pegs. Let us push the hook through the rubber bands of this peg, loop rubber bands over the hook, slide them through and loop them over the peg to the right. Let us push the hook through the same place again.
• 11:54: Let us loop one more pair of black rubber bands over the hook, slide them through and this time loop them over the peg to the left. Let us push the hook through the same place, slide the rubber bands through and loop them over this peg, having pulled the rubber bands off the peg before. Now let us move on to this peg. Let me rotate the loom. First let me push the hook through all the rubber bands of this peg, slide them through
• 12:30: and loop them over the peg to the right. Let me push the hook through the same place and loop them over the peg to the left. Finally let me push the hook through the same place again, grab double rubber bands, slide them through and having pulled off the rubber bands looped over this peg
• 13:02: and instead loop the rubber bands we have on the hook over the peg. We’ve already made the liquid of the cup. Now we need to add orange rubber bands. Let us do that. This time we need to add rubber bands to all the pegs we haven’t looped orange rubber bands over. Let start from here. Let us push the hook through all the rubber bands, loop the rubber bands over the hook, slide them through, pull off the black rubber bands and loop the orange rubber bands from the hook instead.
• 13:34: Let us push the hook through the next peg, put the orange rubber bands on the hook, slide them through anв loop them over this peg, having pulled the black rubber bands off the peg before. Let us push the hook through all the rubber bands, loop the rubber bands over the hook, slide them through, pull off the black rubber bands and loop the orange rubber bands from the hook instead.
• 14:07: Let us go ahead. Push the hook through, grab the orange rubber bands and loop them over the peg instead of the black ones. Let me rotate the loom. We have three more pegs. Let me push the hook through, grab the orange rubber bands and loop them over the peg instead of the black ones. Let me push the hook through, grab the orange rubber bands
• 14:40: and loop them over the peg instead of the black ones. Finally let us place the last pair of orange rubber bands over this peg. Great! We’ve looped the rubber bands over all the pegs. Let me push down the black rubber bands. We need to push them down the rubber bands as much as possible right to the bottom
• 15:12: because now we will need to put two layers of rubber bands, not pulling the bottom rubber bands off the pegs. Let us see how to do it. Let us take two rubber bands and loop them over any pair of the pegs around the circle. Twist rubber bands while looping over the pegs. Then let us take one more pair of rubber bands and loop them over the next pair of pegs, twisting them as well.
• 15:45: Let us loop one more pair over the next pair of pegs. Let us loop one more pair over the next pair of pegs. Twist them every time you loop them. If we look at the loom sideways, we will see that we’ve got two layers.
• 16:22: At the top we‘ve got four rubber bands of the top layer and four rubber bands of the bottom layer. Now we need to push the top rubber bands down because we need to put one more layer of rubber bands. It will also consist of double orange rubber bands. Let us take two rubber bands and loop them over any pair of pegs. Two more rubber bands for the next pair of pegs. Then two more rubber bands. Loop rubber bands this way sequentially along the circle. Let us place two rubber bands at a time.
• 16:55: Now we got three layers of rubber bands on each pegs
• 17:28: and we have twelve rubber bands looped over each of the pegs. That is three layers of four rubber bands. Now you have to be very careful. Because we need to grab four rubber bands of the middle layer of each of the pegs and pull the rubber bands over the peg towards the middle. Let us grab four middle rubber bands of the next peg. Be careful not to grab rubber bands nor of the top neither of the bottom layers.
• 18:01: Middle layer rubber bands only. Although if you grab some needless rubber bands, it won’t be a problem. It is better to avoid it in order to loop evenly. Let us grab four middle rubber bands of this peg. You can help to separate the top and bottom rubber bands with your fingers because it is always easy to do. Let me rotate the loom and keep pulling the middle layer rubber bands over the pegs.
• 18:57: Let us push down the top layer of the rubber bands and place one more layer
• 19:33: but we need to make a handle of the cup before doing it. Let me show you how to make it. Let me put the loom aside, take two rubber bands and wrap them around the hook two times. Let me take one more pair and twist it over my fingers. Let me twist these two rubber bands over my fingers. Let me put them on the tip of the hook and slide this pair of twisted rubber bands onto the rubber bands.
• 20:07: Let us get the other part back on the hook. Let us take two more orange rubber bands. Twist them over your fingers as well. Let us put the rubber bands on the tip of the hook and slide this part onto the double rubber bands. Get the other part back on the hook. We are getting a chain of rubber bands. Now it consists of two links if you don’t count the first link.
• 20:39: In total we need six links that consist of two twisted rubber bands. It is the third link. Let me take one more pair of twisted rubber bands. It is the fourth link. One more link.
• 21:09: It is the fifth link. And finally let me twist the sixth pair of rubber bands, put it on the hook and we’ve got a chain that consists of six links. Let us count one more time. One, two, three, four, five and six. That’s right. Now we need to take three rubber bands. Let us just put them on the tip of the hook, not twisting them and slide this part we’ve made on the rubber bands.
• 21:44: Get the other part of the three rubber bands back on the hook. Let us take three more rubber bands, put them on the tip of the hook and slide it on the rubber bands. Now let us use double twisted rubber bands. Let me take two rubber bands, twist them over my fingers, put them on the tip of the hook and slide this part onto the rubber bands. Get the other part back on the hook. Let us take double rubber bands one more time, twist them, put on the hook
• 22:15: and slide this part onto the rubber bands. The handle is almost ready. Let us consider one more time what it consists of. Two twisted rubber bands, then six links, each made of two twisted rubber bands, then two links each made of three rubber bands and two more links made of two rubber bands. Now we need to make attachments that will secure the handle to the cup. Let us take two rubber bands,
• 22:51: put them on the tip of the hook and slide only these loops to the left on the rubber bands. These four loops. Let us pull these four loops over the hook. The other four loops have to be on the hook. Let us take one more pair of rubber bands. Let us put them on the tip of the hook
• 23:21: and slide them through the remaining four loops. Here are the attachments we’ve got. Let us see how to secure them. Let us move the loom a bit closer. Let us loop one part of the attachment over the middle peg and the other part over the neighbouring peg. We’ve secured one part. Now let us secure the other part as well. Let us loop one part over the middle peg
• 23:55: and the other part over the neighbouring peg. The handle is secured this way. Then we need to place double rubber bands over pairs of all the pegs in order to get a comlete layer of rubber bands. We need to pull four middle rubber bands of each of the pegs over the pegs.
• 24:43: Be very careful and grab only four middle rubber bands, not grabbing any other rubber bands accidentally. Let us pull four middle rubber bands of all of the pegs over the pegs. Great! Let us push down the rubber bands.
• 25:26: Now we need to make one more regular layer, placing two rubber bands on each pair of pegs. When we have put a whole layer of rubber bands,
• 26:02: having placed two rubber bands on each peg we need to pull the rubber bands of two bottom layers over the pegs. Of course we can’t grab all the rubber bands at a time that is why we will be grabbing a few rubber bands at a time. First I am grabbing the rubber bands of the middle layer. You can grab several rubber bands if it challenging to grab all the rubber bands of the middle layer. Then I am grabbing the remaining bottom rubber bands and looping them over the peg. Now I have only four top rubber bands on the peg. I am going to do just the same with the rubber bands of the next peg.
• 26:34: Let me grab the middle layer of the rubber bands. Then I am grabbing the bottom rubber bands and just pulling them over the peg. Let us do the same with rubber bands of each peg. Next we need to make a layer with eyes.
• 27:24: I am going to use black rubber bands to make eyes. We can also use beads to make eyes. I will show you both variants. In order to make eyes with rubber bands take a rubber band and wrap it around the hook four times. Then take a pair of orange rubber band of the same colour as your cup’s colour and slide the rubber band wrapped four times onto them. Let us loop the rubber bands from the second to the third pegs if you count from here. The first, the second.
• 27:55: From the second to the third. It is one eye. Let us make another eye the same way. Wrap the rubber band one, two, three, four times. Let us take two orange rubber bands, put them on the hook and loop them over here from the third to the fourth pegs. Personally I prefer to make eyes with beads that is why I am pulling off these rubber bands. In case if you chose eyes made from rubber bands, you don’t need to pull the rubber bands off.
• 28:32: Then let me take a bead I am going to use to make an eye and such a wire. Let me slide the wire through the bead, take two orange rubber bands, loop them over the wires. I have bend the wires into "L" shape beforehand. Now I am pulling the bead through the wire and sliding it on the rubber bands. I am placing it right where we placed rubber bands with black rubber bands.
• 29:09: Let us loop one part over the second peg and the other over the third peg. Let us loop one part over the second peg and the other over the third peg. We’ve placed one eye. I’ve made the same eye and now I am looping it from the third to the fourth pegs. In order to complete the layer let us loop two rubber bands over the rest of the pegs. Now we have four bottom rubber bands and four top rubber bands on each of the pegs.
• 30:08: We need to grab four bottom rubber bands of each peg and pull them over the pegs. The next layer will be a layer with cheeks. We will use red rubber bands to make cheeks.
• 30:40: That is why I am grabbing a red rubber band, wrapping it around the hook four times. One, two, three, four. Now I am taking a pair of orange rubber bands and sliding the red rubber band on the orange bands. I am looping them from the second to the third pegs right where we have the left eye. We need to make one more cheek like this and place it above the eye. I’ve wrapped it four times.
• 31:12: Then let us take two orange rubber bands, put them on the hook and slide these red rubber bands. Over this and this pegs. From the third to the fourth pegs. Right above the second eye. In order to complete the layer we will place two orange rubber bands on the rest of the pegs. Just as usual.
• 31:42: Let us pull four bottom rubber bands of each peg over the pegs. The middle part doesn’t let us do that. That is why let us pull it a little with our hook,
• 32:28: carefully grabbing the rubber bands of the middle pegs. Be careful and don’t let the rubber bands of the outer pegs fly off the pegs.
• 32:59: You can also pull the edges of this part with your hands. The cup is taking on its distinctive shape. We will make our mouth from a black rubber band. Let us take a black rubber band and wrap it around the hook two times. Let us hook the four rubber bands between the eyes, slide the black rubber band wrapped two times on them. Then let us pull these orange rubber bands off the peg.
• 33:37: Slide the black rubber band to the middle of the rubber bands. Once it’s been done loop the orange rubber bands back over the peg. The black rubber band is behind the peg inside there. Let us push down the rubber bands of all the outer pegs. Let us put a regular layer of rubber bands again, placing two rubber bands on each pair of pegs. As usual let us pull four bottom rubber bands over the pegs.
• 34:34: Four rubber bands on each peg. It is time to secure the other attachment of the handle. Let us do it. Let us take two orange rubber bands. Let us push the hook through the orange rubber bands.
• 35:08: We have two rubber bands to the left and two to the right. Now let us take two orange rubber bands, slide them through these two rubber bands. Let us loop one part over the middle peg and the other part over the peg next to it. Then let us push the hook through these two remaining rubber bands over here and slide two rubber bands through them.
• 35:38: Let us loop one part over the middle peg and the other part over the peg nearby. The lower part of the handle is firmly secured. In order to complete the layer let us place two rubber bands on the remaining pegs. Let us pull the bottom layer rubber bands over the pegs. As usual four rubber bands.
• 36:29: Let us push down the rubber bands of all the outer pegs and pull the rubber bands of the middle pegs. Now we will be placing rubber bands of the last layer. We will be alternating two rubber bands
• 37:00: and a rubber bands wrapped two times. Let us take two rubber bands and loop them over any pair of pegs. Now let us take a single rubber band, wrap it two times and loop over the next pair of pegs. Now let us take two rubber bands again and loop them farther. Then let us loop a rubber band wrapped two times. Then two rubber bands and a rubber band wrapped two times. Let us alternate rubber bands this way,
• 37:32: lopping them over the rest of the pegs to complete the layer. Let us pull the bottom rubber bands of all the pegs over the pegs. Four rubber bands.
• 38:06: Now we need to remove the rubber bands from the pegs but let us do it safely. We need to slide the rubber bands onto two orange rubber bands.
• 38:36: Let us take two orange rubber bands and loop them over any two pegs. Let us pull the bottom rubber bands over the peg on the rubber bands. Four rubber bands here. Let me grab four bottom rubber bands of the next peg and slide them on the double rubber bands. Now we need to move this pair of rubber bands a bit to the right. Let me move one part to the right and move the other part to the right as well. Now this time let us grab four bottom rubber bands of this peg
• 39:08: and slide them on the double orange rubber bands. Also here. Let me rotate the loom and slide the rubber bands. Then let us move the double rubber bands farther. Here. Let us move the rubber bands on the other side to the right again. Look this part of the cup interferes with what we have to do here. That is why let us push it aside and grab four bottom rubber bands of these pegs
• 39:39: and pull them over the pegs and remove the rubber bands from the loom. Let us move on. Let us pull the bottom four rubber bands of this peg over the peg. Let us move the rubber bands on the other side as well and pull these four rubber bands of this peg over the peg.
• 40:09: Make sure the rubber bands of the middle part are not stuck. Let us keep moving the double rubber bands. I am moving it to the right even more. I am pulling four rubber bands over the peg. I am moving it to the right on the other side. I am pulling four rubber bands over the peg. A bit farther. Finally I am moving the double rubber bands the last time to the last peg
• 40:51: and pull its four rubber bands over the peg. Now we have only two pegs. There two rubber bands looped over each of them. We need to push the hook through the rubber bands of one of the pegs and pull the rubber bands off the peg. Now we just need to make a loop with this pair of rubber bands, sliding one part of it through the other of the same pair of rubber bands.
• 41:24: Carefully tug the loop as much as your rubber bands let you to. Let us slide the loop through some other rubber bands in order to prevent its loosing. I am grabbing the loop and sliding it through. We can slide it through one more time. A bit farther. Let us grab the the sticking loop through any rubber bands. Like this. It is firmly fixed now.
• 41:54: Let us stretch it into round shape. Look the liquid is placed just in the right place. A bit below the rim of the cup. Great! The cup is smiling at us and asking us to enjoy drinking tea or coffee from it. So I hope you liked the tutorial that is why make such cups of different colours
