Diaper Cake

    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. 



My supplies:

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.

That's beautiful, Jen! I love it because it's simple... I'm not a fan of the gaudy ones! And the flowers on top are just perfect! :-)
