"Diaper Cake"


First of all I wanted to thank those who e-mailed me directions, links, and pictures of diaper cakes so that I was able to make one of my own. I started this one last night and finished it today. I bought a pack of 56 size 1 diapers and rolled and rubber banded them last night. That took about a hour. I kinda needed 6 more diapers for the top tier but I didn't want to buy another bag of diapers. So I bought some onsies instead for the top tier. I think it turned out super cute. And best of all, it was easy. I love easy. If you want the directions that I used, e-mail me and I will send them to you.

I added some baby socks, teething ring, and pacifiers to the side of it. On the top is a cute little stuffed animal. The middle core is a bottle of baby lotion and a baby bottle. The bottle and the lotion are for support. The base is a cardboard cake plate.

I got out my Cricut and cut out the letters BABY and some stars to fill in the spaces. The ribbon is stapled together and I covered the staples with the big orange bows. They didn't find out the sex of the baby so I went with neutral colors. This was a fun project and I know she will love it. She is a stamper. Friday they are having a party for her at Tony's work so he is gonna bring it to her for me since I couldn't go to the shower. I also got a big plastic bag to put it in from the dollar tree. It is a shrink wrap bag so everything is all nice and tight and nothing will fall off until she opens it.
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Barely Banana, Certainly Celery
