Diaper Cake

A baby shower is a great excuse to make a diaper cake! It was my second attempt (and first for a girl) and I was really happy with how it came out :)

To make one you need about 100 plain white diapers, ribbon, a cake board, cake dowels to stabilize the whole thing and lots of elastic bands. Oh and about 4-5 hours and lot of patience :)

I didn't follow any kind of pattern - I just found building groups of 9 or so easiest...

Once you are done with construction, you can cover the elastic bands with ribbons and hair accessories and some fun turrets and flags...

It looked lovely on the cupcake table :)

Getting back into the zone :)

It's been a long time since I did anything remotely creative and I miss it so much! I did embellish a couple of T-shirts for Maddy though last week. I thought they came out really well :)

Memory Mason Jar

Maddy made this adorable little project at the weekend. It's a mason jar with a decorated tag and colored post-it notes inside with her favorite memories so far for the year. At New Year she plans to open it up and read them:)
