I've got "babies" on my mind lately.

You see, I have 5 friends who are pregnant, actually one gave birth already. So I've been thinking of unique ways to give my gifts. There are tons of ideas out there, but one that I really wanted to make for all if I can, is a DIAPER CAKE!

This video tutorial has ben the most helpful to me...

So, I gathered my materials...

I used only one pack of size 1 diaper from TARGET ($6.99) , ribbons, cellophane plastic, big rubber bands, glue gun (for your ribbons) , baking pan, chocolates (for mom) and other cutsie baby gifts you want to give or add
 Then started 'baking' my cake!

I then added all my soft gifts in the middle since I was only planning a single layer diaper cake...

Rolled up the onesies in a roll to make it roll like roses and tied it up with rubber bands.
The hat eventually ended up in the middle, mittens on the side.

I then added the rubber band to hold everything in place
Then the fun part, I added the ribbons tight, holding them in place by gluing both ends together.  That way you can use ALL THE DIAPERS still once it's disassembled.

In the end, I only ended up using 1 rubber band in the middle to hold the diapers in place.

And here it is...

I added some chocolates for mom in between the diapers
I also added extra ribbon scraps in between the onesies and mittens up top
I finished off the gift by wrapping it up in cellophane from the Dollar store. 

What better way to pin a card than to actually use a safety pin!
I added the sandals outside since they didn't go well with the cake.

I want to try 2 layers next time and I hope my friend and her new darling will love this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Have a Great Week!
