After many hours searching pinterest for inspiration, a plan came together in my head, and this is the diaper cake that I came up with:
I made paper flowers with scrapbook paper, book paper, tissue paper, my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, my Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut cartridge, and a My Favorite Things Rolled Rose die:
I used the handmade flowers for the centerpieces, along the center of the table runner, on the mini chalkboards to decorate them...
I used it over top of the tissue paper tassel garland that I made for my mantle:
I did not make the cake, I had my mom pick one up from a nearby bakery (trust me, I am much better with paper decor!):
We played a game of late night diapers-and, yes, I made a coral tutu for the basket, and cut the sign shape from black cardstock, my Cricut, and my Storybook cartridge
I had a station set up for the guests to create headbands (the kids had a blast with this!!):
Instead of a guestbook, I had everyone sign in on cardstock onesies that I diecut with the Cricut Sampler cartridge, and clip them up on bakers' twine with mini clothespins:
We had lots of yummy food:
The guests brought books in lieu of cards, perfect for my school teacher sister:
I made a corsage for the mama to be:
A wreath out of diapers for the front door:
And some tissue paper poms for the corner of the dining room:
and, believe it or not, I actually got in one of the pictures, too:
So, this is why I haven't been posting much. My summer has been consumed with work and shower craftiness, but I should be back to "regularly scheduled" scrapbook craftiness soon. I am still recuperating!
I am linking up at the Idea Room link party:
