I absolutely love how it turned out, just wish I would have been able to incorporate some of the aqua blue. I used straight pins to hold the ribbon in place in the back and used the flowers from a vine I have had stored from our wedding. Originally I planned and tried to make the cake like this:
However when I attempted this it did not turn out well and I had to change it. In the end I like how mine turned out better. I know my cousin will love it and no one in my family would has ever had one at a baby shower.
The diapers I used I actually had leftover from when Grant was in size 1. I've had them stored in his closet since then waiting for baby #2 or someone else to have a baby. I bought some clear hair elastics from the dollar tree. You get 500 in a package for $1. I rolled each of the diapers and used the elastics to hold each in place. To get each layer to hold its shape I wrapped the ribbon around really snug and used the straight pins to hold it.
I know Julia won't be expecting one of these and I can't wait to put this on the center of the table.
