I received an invitation to my niece Nicole's baby shower a few weeks back. This got me very excited, not only am I excited for her and her family because a new baby is definitely worth getting excited about. But also for me, because now I get to create another special gift. :) The invitation said bring a bag of diapers and you will be entered in to a special drawing. Well that is all Jeanne and I had to read and we decided we were doing diaper gifts.
The first thing Jeanne & I did was went to Target.com and looked at Nicole's registry. From there we decided what we were each going to make her. Of course we love to shop together, so off we went to target! We shared a large box of diapers and a few other things like bath towels and hair ties.
My gift set consisted of
35 diapers + 21 extras
1-baby bath tub
1-baby bath gel
2-baby wash cloths
1-Sm rubber ducky that takes the waters temperature
1-lg rubber ducky that covers the tub's water spout
a little poly foam &
2" wired ribbon
This gift was very simple to put together, I just placed diapers over the edge of the tub and snugged them up nice and tight.
Pulled my ribbon around and tied a tight knot with a pretty bow to hold all the diapers in place.
Now on to the water spout for this tub. I first had to roll some diapers and stuff in the tub to hold the spout in place.
Then I wraped 4 diapers around a flower stem to create the spout.
I put pony tail ties around the rolled up diapers to hold them on.
Then stuck the tub's spout in between the other rolled up diapers.
Bent it over to look like a water spout, added the teething rings to represent faucets and then laid a couple of wash cloths over the edge of the tub. I placed 21 extra diapers in the bottom of the tub to fill it up.
Oh Wait!!! we can't forget the bubbles :) made these with the poly foam.
All that was left to do was float a few necessities in the tub, and present it to the new mom to be. Hope you enjoyed watching me have fun with a few diapers. LOL Rosemary
