My free diaper cake

I made this diaper cake out of 2 jumbo packs of Huggies diapers - I got these for free last week at Rite Aid where I stacked the $3/1 manufacturer coupon, Rite Aid $2 rebate and $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon with the $8.99 a pack sale. 

This was so easy to make, I rolled each diaper up and secured each with a rubber band.  For the bottom layer, I wrapped each individual rolled diaper around a bottle of baby shampoo/wash and secured the whole thing with a large rubber band.  I added two more layers to yield 3 layers total.  For the middle layer I repeated the layering to make 2 layers total.  For the top layer I sat 2 layers of diapers wrapped together.  Then I tied contrasting ribbon around each layer to cover up the rubber bands.  For the top I tied some fancy ribbon.  I prefer the minimalistic look - However, I have seen some diaper cakes covered in cute things such as binkies, wash cloths, diaper pins, bottles etc..

I'm taking this to my cousin's baby shower this weekend.

What size diapers did you use?

After having 2 kids I realised that new Mom's need bigger sizes, my kids grew so quick that I was in size 1-2 in no time. So this diaper cake is made from size 2. plus using larger size diapers means you will use less diapers to make it. hope this helps

So impressed that you pulled off getting diapers FOR FREE! Awesome! Diaper cakes can be so expensive to make, so that's just awesome!
