My kids love this! On the odd occasion, I make paper chip cups for a special fish & chip dinner at home. They are easy and quick to make and bring a bit of novelty to a regular meal. All you need is a square piece of paper (just cut an A4 piece into a square). I’ve made this with both regular paper and butches paper and both work well.
Another use for these paper cups are for when you are enjoying fish and chips at the beach: make a batch before you go and then you have an easy way to portion food per person.
Paper. That’s it!
1. If using an A4 piece of paper, start here.
2. Fold the bottom right hand corner to the upper edge. Trim off the excess to make a square.
3. If the paper is already square, fold in half so it’s a triangle like this (this is already done if you started with an A4 piece of paper). Position your paper as shown below: with the triangle top point furtherest away from you.
4. Take the right hand bottom corner of the triangle and fold up to the left hand side of the triangle, so the folded piece makes a horizontal line.
5. Repeat with the left hand point of the triangle: bring it over to the right hand side, making a horizontal line.
6. Take the top small triangle section (above horizontal line just created) and fold down.
7. Fold them back up again, and then take the piece closest to you. With the other hand, open the flap from the left hand point fold and insert the top fold inside.
8. With the reminding piece, push it into the middle opening of the paper cup (where the chips will go).
9. That’s it! Just open and fill with chips.
Here’s a quick video tutorial.
Fill with chips!
Depending on how you position the meal, sit the chips up or lay them down. OR pop on some sauce and old them in your hand. Yum! Chips served with Sealord frozen fish (classic crumb / lemon herb) & salad.
