Tutorial for Making a Diaper Baby

What you need: 50 size 2 Diapers, a Diaper box, regular size rubber bands,  large rubber bands, baby clothes(preferably off the registry) and optionally other little gifts off the registry to fill the basket!

1. Roll one diaper and rubber band it

2. Unwrap the following diapers and roll around the rubber banded diaper one by one, until the head is as big as you want it to be. 3.Then do the following for the body(stomach).

4. Place big rubber bands individually around the head and stomach. 5. Then place a big rubber band around the head and body to connect them together.

6. Roll one diaper then roll the end of that diaper into another one to make the limbs

7. Secure the limbs with rubber-bands

8. Roll the completed limbs individually into one diaper, the long way

9. Tuck and secure the limbs into the already placed rubber-bands that were placed on the body
10.  Now you can dress your Diaper Baby.- I used a hat, long sleeve onesie, and pants that were on the registry.

11. To make it look even more fun and realistic add a binkie(pacifier)!

12.  Diaper Baby needs a carrier/home! I use a Costco Size diaper box. Cut off the flaps that were used to close the box and cut down the front of the box in a half oval shape.

13. Wrap the box with wrapping paper.

14. Then place 2 of the 3 packs of diapers that came in the Costco box back in the box. This way Diaper Baby can sit high and be seen!

15. Place the tissue paper and the rest of the gifts that you got off the registry to fill the box up!

16. Receiving blankets looked better than the tissue paper, so I switched them out!

17. Give it to a Beautiful Expecting Mommy!
