    • Using Needle/Spoke, Make two holes at the brim of paper cup that are diametrically opposite to each other.

    • The diameter of the hole should be "just" enough for the thread to pass through.

    • Take two cotton threads, roughly about 15 cm in length and tie one of the ends on the holes.

    • Let's call this " Brim" thread

    • Using Needle/Spoke, Make two holes in the extra ridge at the base of the cup diametrically opposite to each other.

    • The "base" holes must be parallel to the "brim" holes.

    • Take two threads, roughly about 20 cm in length and tie one of the ends at the bottom holes

    • Coloured threads are preferable

    • Let's call this " Base" thread

    • Fill the cup with coloured thermocol balls

    • Have a plate beneath to avoid the spillage of cup's contents.

    • Pull the "base" threads apart towards the spoke edges, the cup will displace its contents

    • Holes are not at a straight line

    • The Thread pairs are not of same length

    • "Brim" threads are too long resulting in need for much longer spoke

    • "Base" threads are shorter than "Brim" threads.
