Perfect Easter/Springtime sparkleball from Lisa, who glued dixie cups inside the larger plastic cups. We love the way the paper cups change the nature of the light that's given off.

In this one, Lisa used "K Cups" (from Keurig coffeemaking) to cover the colored lights, and they really do give off an Easter Egg-y effect.
