Yes, you read the title correctly. A Nappy Cake, or Diaper Cake if you're in the States (I can speak American too, you know! ;-p). I understand these are quite popular over the pond, but I only came across the idea last week. While this creation was made without Stampin' Up! supplies, I feel justified in posting it as SU have yet to branch out into nappies!! I made this on Saturday afternoon at my Nan's house as a gift for my brother and his girlfriend who are expecting a little boy in about a month. I am so excited about being an auntie!
The masterpiece is constructed by rolling up nappies and securing them in circles around bath bubbles/baby lotion bottles etc. 74 nappies in this case. That's a lot of rolling! The outer rings of nappies were tied with blue florist's ribbon instead of being secured with elastic bands, and then wide ribbon was fastened around each tier.
Atop of the 'cake' is my little friend Quackers, sitting astride some baby lotion. He is sporting a designer bow tie and belt to tie him onto the cake, as well as some stylish baby socks.
Hope you like the idea!
