Babies are everywhere lately it seems! Yesterday Marquette's sister had her baby, and one of my best friends had hers as well! With all these new babies coming there have been lots of baby showers! I like to make something for baby showers when I have time, and this last one I went to was one of my best friend Mal's baby shower. She was having a little girl and we have been close friends for a long time so I knew I wanted to do something special. Here is what I came up with!
So I was a horrible Pinstrositeer because I didn't take pictures of the process, BUT this was a total experiment so I didn't know what was going to happen and if this would even turn out ok haha
The whole thing is rigged with cardboard that I cut and then taped together to form a basinet shape Then I covered the whole thing in diapers using double sided mildly sticky tape (so it wouldn't ruin the diapers when you take the tape off).
It's hard to tell in the pictures but the first thing I did was create a boarder around the bottom with a line of diapers, then I placed the second row of diapers over the edge of the cardboard so it was sort of straddling it, these second row diapers overlapped the first row so that no cardboard was showing. These (second row) diapers weren't taped down at all, they were secured in place by the pink ribbon which was fairly snug. Then I made a top to the basinet with one single piece of cardboard and used the straddling technique on that piece as well, only this time I used tape. Then the back was all tape, diapers, magic and luck!! The bottom on the inside of the basinet is lined with old quilt batting we had, and then diapers were laid on top, then we placed the items inside! Chip was very helpful during this project and helped me do everything.
That was probably super confusing and not very helpful, I will have to do a video tutorial, or at least take detailed pictures next time I do this so I can explain the process better.
Also, this thing is BIG, way bigger than I intended, it was almost 2 ft. wide, 2 ft. tall (at the tallest section) and maybe 3 ft. long. We used an entire box of size 2 diapers (128 diapers), and then we filled it with all sorts of goodies. My mom and I went in on this together so when I met up with her after these pictures were taken she filled it with some more goodies too!
Doe anyone have any super unique "diaper" creations?! I am constantly going to showers and am always in need of new ideas!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
The momma to be loved it!!
