I really wanted to try this project so I researched online tutorials on how to make a Diaper Cake for an upcoming baby shower I was invited to. Some tutorials were good some not so much but I found this one which I thought was simple and straight forward.

I bought two packages of newborn diapers- actually one size up, because the newborn ones only fit for a small window of time... and the ribbon, flowers and rattle.. I was able to shape the cake and work through the tutorial for this end result... well, almost -I added a base with a white doily slightly larger than the bottom layer and it gave it a finished look.  The possibilities are endless you can add all sorts of trinkets and toiletries, teddy bears and receiving blankets.

I really enjoyed making it especially because it's in tune with my tag line and everything I try to do... It's not so much the gift per say.... but it's all in the details...
