Our friends from church, Ryan and Katie, had a baby girl Friday named Lucy. I got a great deal on diapers from Food Lion. The newborn size was on closeout for 4.99 (half price). I received in the mail 2 coupons - 5.00 and 1.00. So instead of giving them two packs of diapers I decided to make a Diaper Cake. Thanks to YouTube I was able to watch a demo on how to make it. It was sooo much fun to do.
2 packs of diapers (spent 4.00)
2 8 oz bottles (spent 3.00)
small rubberbands (spent 1.00 for a pack of 500)
large rubberbands (already had on hand)
2 rolls of ribbon (spent 2.00)
silver tray (spent 1.00)
bag of candy (spent 1.00)
2 packs of floral pins (spent 2.00)
2 bouquets of flowers (spent 2.00)
double-sided tape (already had on hand)
So I spent about 16.00, less than I would have spent on the diapers if they were regular price!! If I would have remembered about my Gerber coupons for FL I could have gotten the bottles for free. Grrr! Oh well. It took me 45 mins. to assemble including the 5 minute tutorial.
