The icing on the cake at The Hybrid Chick

Hi sweet blog friends! I have a diaper cake confection to share today! I have been dreaming of making my first diaper cake for a couple of weeks now. My cousin's baby shower is almost here and it was time to put some more handmade ideas to work! Perhaps you'll remember the invite and the gift box I shared before using the monkey from the My Cute Stamps Circus Animals set?
All the details on the cute square box gift topper are in my tutorial over at the hybrid chick. I'd love it if you checked it out! The box template is from Kelleigh Ratzlaff over at the digichick and BONUS Kelleigh has her whole store on sale for 30% off right now. Go go go! :)
This was an incredibly easy project and I would totally do it again. SO fun!
Thanks for stopping by, I'm so glad you shared your day with me!
Supplies:
Template: Perfectly Square by Kelleigh Ratzlaff at the digichick boutique
Designer Paper: Paper Daydream original ;) using Microsoft Word
Stamps: My Cute Stamps
Cardstock: Papertrey and Georgia Pacific
Cricut Cartridge: Base Camp
Punches: EK Success, CM and SU
Ink: Papertrey
Pens: Zig scroll and brush
Other: pinking sheers, felt, ribbon, hemp twine, diapers (i used a box of 96 size 1 pampers and had about 30 leftover), receiving blankets, rubber bands
