Step 1: Draw a snowman on one paper cup. The head and hat should be small so that we have space for a big body with 5 buttons.

Step 2: Draw 5 buttons on the snowman body and a circle on the hat.

Step 3: Carefully cut the buttons out.

Step 4: Put the second paper cup into the first one.

Step 5: First write 0 in the snowman hat. I also make a small mark on the edge of the inner paper cup to indicate where the starting point is.

Step 6: Now turn the inner paper cup about 0.75” to the right. Write 1 on the snowman hat and use a marker to put a small dot on the first button.

Step 7: Repeat step 6 until you reach 5 and have dots on 5 buttons. I used different colors for different buttons.

Step 8: Now remove the inner cup. Using the markers, color the dots to make them bigger (as big as the button holes) with the markers.
