Ooooh, Baaabbby.....

Hi everyone,   The next creation I am sharing with you today is a nappy(diaper) cake.  When I found out a girlfriend of mine had had a little boy my mind went into overdrive.  I had been wanting to make up one of these for the longest time, after seeing one done up in a magazine.

Now for those of you who don't know what I'm rambling on about, a nappy cake is made up of that's right nappies! I rolled up 18 nappies to use as the 'cake' base.  I wrapped a soft, cuddly baby blanket around the base. And decorated the top with three pairs of socks, five bibs and a cute teddy comforter toy.
I rolled the socks and bibs to look like pretty flowers (roses maybe?) and cut squares of dark green tissue paper to form the leaves.  I left the toy on the card he was purchased on and just pushed it into the edge of the nappies and baby blanket.  I wrapped a piece of light blue cardstock around the outside and finished it off with some twisted raffia. 
A cute 'cake' without the calories.  You can't get much better than that.  Insert chuckling. 
I wrapped the whole cake in clear cellophane wrap.  Then, I made up an ingredients list, that had all bubs birth details and the list of cake ingredients. I stamped up a piece of the blue cardstock and layered the list onto it and then laminated the whole tag.  I thought that once the cake had been used it would make a great keepsake.
Thanks for popping by, hope you found some inspiration to get creative.
See you again soon,
Cheers, Deb
