Boy Baby Shower

10 08 2008

We attended my cousin in law’s baby shower today. I’ve gotten her a present a while back but I haven’t had the time (due to our massive cleaning project at home) to wrap it up and make her a card. I waited till the last minute. How predictable of me.

Anyway, check out this inexpensive stamp I found at the Dollar Tree in NoHo last weekend.

For a second, I was disappointed, thinking I wasted my $1. =P It looked pretty plain after seeing it on print. Then I had an idea. I decided to print it a few times on papers with different patterns and Voila!

And about that present…
The easiest thing to do was to put them in a gift bag. Then, I thought I could use a cute basket instead and arrange the items nicely. I figured, it would be cool to add some diapers to the gift as well.

The party was an hour away so I thought I’d just buy a bag of diapers and give it as is, as an addition to the gift basket. But my husband said it would be better if I tried to be crafty. Well, being a submissive wife and all, I listened to him. I decided to make her a diaper cake with the other presents to give her for the shower.

Here’s the final product…

Boy Diaper Cake

It was a small two tier diaper cake with two outfits, three bibs and a cute pair of shoes. Not too bad for having only one hour to come up with the idea and putting it together..whew!

Very impressive! I love shopping for baby shower stuff at the dollar store. They carry so much stuff.
I like the ribbon you used for the diaper cake. It came out nicely.

The card and the diaper cake came out great!
