My 1st Diaper Cake!

This evening I'm going to a friend's baby shower, and my assignment was to bring the diaper cake. I've never made one, but they are super easy to make! Of course there are several ways and styles to make them, but I decided to go with more of a classy look. I didn't want a stuffed animal at the top with a bunch of items dangling from it because it just reminds me too much of something you'd win at a carnival. My friend LOVES polka dots and the colors of the shower are aqua blue and light lime green. I was hoping to find green paper shred, but no luck :( Since she's having a boy I still think the brown gives it a cute touch!  I used newborn size diapers and bought the big Costco size box. I've seen tutorials where they use a large container of baby powder to use in the center of the diapers, but I just used a water bottle from home and it worked great :) I wrapped each diaper with a rubber band and then used a large rubber band around all them them to secure them to the water bottle. Easy peasy!
