Diaper Cake

I wanted a creative way to give the bibs at that baby shower, so I decided to make a diaper cake (with diapers I had on hand that no longer fit my little one). I had never made one before but I think it turned out pretty cute. I was pleased with it. I saw on some blog (which I didn't bookmark and now for the life of me I can't find) where she made a diaper cake that didn't require rolling each diaper up and wrapping in a rubber band. I was totally on board since the one thing I hated about the diaper cake my sis-in-law gave me when I was pregnant was unwrapping and unrolling all those diapers! Sorry that I can't tell you whose idea I stole! I know it looks a little crooked in the picture, but it wasn't in real life (at least I don't think it was!).

And the best part? The instructions called for an empty toilet paper roll to put in the middle of the bottom tier, but since my family has a thing for gifting cans of Tab (more Tab creations here)...

Yep, I stuck a Tab in the middle of the bottom. It was awesome because the mommy-to-be totally didn't expect it!
Totally easy and super cute. I think I'll be making these in the future!
