Have you been to Saucy's blog? She is wonderfully creative, friendly, sweet and Charming...and the inspiration behind this nappy cake (or should I say diaper cake, for the Americans and Canadians?) She has the tutorial on her blog, look on her "Oldies but Goodies" list.
I have been itching to make one since I first saw it, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to be invited to a friend's baby shower next weekend! I am really happy with how it turned out - I used up some old scrapbook papers for the tags, some pretty ribbon, because if there's one thing I cannot resist (other than chocolate, of course) it's pretty ribbon, and then, look at those sweet baby pins - they were part of my prize (okay, I'll try not to talk about my prizes so much, but there were so many!) The little snuggler bunny is so soft and cuddly, and he's holding the card - inside it has one of my all time favourite boy quotes -
Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood,
We find the delightful creature of a Boy.
I've included a shot of the layers from above - the top layer has 21 size 2 Pampers, the bottom layer has a small pack of size 3 Pampers, and I wrapped them around a tub of ear buds to make the layer wider than the top one.
Now I just hope my friend doesn't change her mind on the baby's name, and that she doesn't stumble across my blog before next Sunday - J, if you're here, SHUT YOUR EYES!!
