Step 1: 

Be sure to thoroughly clean out your cup and lid with soap and water and dry thoroughly.

Step 2: 

Carefully remove any labels or wraps.

Step 3: 

Start decorating your yogurt cup by cutting several strips of duct tape and wrapping around the cup height-wise. Smaller pieces will help keep the look nice and neat.

Step 4: 

Trim any excess tape around the rim. Be careful not to get any tape inside the rim. You want the lid to be able to secure properly.

Step 5: 

Continue adding duct tape all the way around the cup, overlapping each piece by about 1/8 inch. You will notice that because of the curvature of the cup this strips will criss-cross. This is what you want to achieve. Cover the cup completely.

Step 6: 

Alternate tape colors if you'd like. The number of strips you will need is determined by the size of your cup.

Step 7: 

Once the cup is covered completely, seal the edge around the rim. Tear a thin strip of duct tape in your color of choice and wrap all the way around around the top edge of the container.

Step 8: 

Decorate the container as you choose, with markers, stickers, jewels or other embellishments.

Step 9: 

Now you want to add the magnet to your cup. Cut a square that fits the bottom of the cup.

Step 10: 

Remove the paper and place sticky part on your cup. Easy Peasy!

Step 11: 

Lastly, you want to label the front of your cup. To do so, rip off a small piece of duct tape (the size of your cup lid) and place on top of a piece of parchment paper about the same size.

Step 12: 

The parchment paper will help you cut your duct tape to the desired shape without compromising the sticky back. Carefully cut a circle about the size of your yogurt cup lid and stick the duct tape on top.

Step 13: 

Label your lid with whatever knick knacks you're going to place in the cup.

Step 14: 

Fill 'em up and vióla, you're all done :)
