Baby Shower Diaper gift...

I went to a baby shower this past weekend. The mother-to-be requested baby diapers as a gift.... I thought I could pop onto Pinterest and find a quick cute idea to follow to do a diaper cake or something like that. Wrong. I couldn't find anything that I thought was cute.... so I came up with something on my own. A diaper bath! Now this is caute! 
I used a plastic laundry hamper as the base of the baby tub. I pulled curling ribbon between the hampers slats using a crochet hook and then wrapped the curling ribbon around each little diaper to hold it in place. Just for the base alone it took eighty diapers....
 I used Sesame Street diapers around the rim....
 For the top of the baby tub, I cut a cardboard circle to fit inside the hamper so I could stand some diapers inside the bathtub as well. I lost count after 40ish... I also cut a hole in the cardboard for the little baby dolls feet to fit through so it sat a little lower in the tub.
 Lastly, I added some iridescent gift shred to the top and a little rubber ducky to finish off the bathtub look. Ahhhhhh.....
 
I had bought a little light up/musical Seahorse to give the new baby too. These are my favorite little toys for babies. Instead of decorating the gift bag-- I used double sided tape and taped the baby themed stickers to the bag itself. This way the new Momma can use them however she wants.
I also made gift tags to put on the gifts. I pulled out my paint and made what I hope looked like bubbles... Once the paint had dried, I went to Avery.com and used the free templates they provide and printed onto the painted cardstock the sentiment...
 I cut and glued the painted/printed card stock onto some blue card stock and added some curling ribbon to finish them up. Easy peasy.
I am happy to report the new mom-to-be liked the gifts I gifted her with....
It has been a fun-filled day~
big hugs,
Cheryl

I'm sure new mom will find a good use for all the diapers, if she can bear to take apart the adorable "ensemble" :) I love what Carol said - that future Pinterest searchers will be able to find YOUR project when they search for something cute to make!
