Non-Stamp, Diaper Cake

Hi Stampers and Scrappers,

My husbands Aunt Margo and I have a lot of fun when she comes to visit from MA, she likes to cook and craft like I do. Her last visit we made baby shower invitations with matching favors which were decorated jumbo binder clips. Another one of her daughters is pregnant so this visit we made this diaper cake for her baby shower that will be held in late December.

This was really fun to make... all you do is roll up some diapers (we used disposable but you can use cloth as well) and hold them together with rubber bands, make a couple layers of your cake and then decorate. We did not stamp on this but I did use my Cricut die cut machine to make the topper and some snowflakes and gift packages that were attached to toothpicks and stuck in amongst the diapers. The curling ribbons really made the project come to life. We were very proud of our accomplishment and had a lot of fun shopping for all of the supplies and figuring out how to put it all together. I hope you get a chance to craft with a friend this holiday season too!
