Wonderful reuse of trash! Please take pics when you have a chance, I would love to see your bird feeder.
I've seen the 4oz., 8oz. and 12 oz. flower trays.....I'm wondering, how much "shaved ice" actually goes into each. Should I estimate double, this includes the outside portion that is not in the cup. So I would advertise them as actually double the cup size........... 8oz.,16oz. and 24oz. ??? Am I about right?
Hello! this is how I actually do it for myself. I had two choices in mind. The first choice was to go with a "4oz" and "8oz" cups to serve to my customers directly in the shave ice. Or the second choice I had was to sell only one size which is the large "12oz" , but I will not directly fill the cup with ice. My alternative was to use a "6" or "8" oz paper cup and once I make my shave ice. I would put it directly in the cup. This way it conserves ice, syrup, and a great reduction in my cost. Not only that, if I feel that I want to sell the cup to my customers for an additional price it will also cover my cost for the cup. This is just my two cents. Other people may have other options though. Best of luck to you!

I am considering getting styrafoam cups and plastic cups. On regular days I will serve in the styrafoam, but on weekends (or special events) I will offer both. I will invest in paper cups but I will compare the costs with a paper cup inside the plastic cup to the cost of it without, taking consideration in the extra ice involved. Thanks again, Iceman.
I would normally stick to the medium and the small for your Large and Small size. The large flower cup ~14 ounces, is usually way too big and requires a paper cone cup to be placed inside. To be cost effective, offering just the styrafoam cup and the plastic cup should do in terms of offering alternatives. Paper cups tend to melt and sag very fast and most of the time you would end up needing to double cup or even triple cup it.
