"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Cute Cupcake Diaper

By: Kelsey Apley

Looking for baby shower crafts?  This cute cupcake craft makes a wonderful gift for any baby shower or mother-to-be.  The best part?  The cupcake is made out of a real diaper!



Materials:

  • 1 Pamper’s Size 1 or 2 diaper
  • 1 pair of baby socks ( works best with solid colors)
  • 1 baby wash cloth
  • 3 Rubber Bands
  • 11 inches of ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • 1 cupcake liner

 Instructions:

  1. Roll up the both socks so they look spirally for the center. Make sure it sticks up some, because it will act as the icing for the diaper cupcake. Once you have them wrapped up good, secure socks with a rubber band.
     
  2. Take your diaper, and fold it in half, it will be a bit tricky to keep it in place due to the stretchy part on diaper. Take the socks you rolled up and lay them on diaper, and roll diaper and socks up together. Make sure they are even with each other and secure the diaper with rubberband. Also at this time plug in your glue gun to get it warming up for the final step.
     
  3. Take your wash cloth and fold it up to be the same height as what the diaper is, then do the same as what you did with diaper and socks. Roll the wash cloth around the diaper creating another layer. Once you get it wrapped around, secure it with a rubber band.
     
  4. Take the ribbon that you have, and test wrap it around your cupcake to make sure it goes all the way around the cupcake and overlaps a little bit. You need it to overlap because you will be putting glue on the ribbon to secure it in place.
    So once you have your ribbon cut to what size you want, just wrap it around the cupcake, try to center it. Then just put a few dots of the glue onto the ribbon, and then fold the overlap onto the glue to secure it in place.
     
  5. Now take your diaper cupcake and set it in your cupcake liner! You might need to play with cupcake and liner to make it look right! You are done, you have completed your diaper cupcake!

I made a couple of diaper cakes 8 years ago when my daughter was pregnant with my grand daughter and 7 years ago with my grandson and have told people how to make them. I did the cakes themselves and never seen just the cupcake which is so much simpler. These are so easy and fun to make and decorate to your colors and theme and so much cheaper to make them yourself so why not make more for the other tables. Do not know how to make the cupcake diaper then just read the tutorial and see how fast you can learn. Why not make some with the guest for a baby shower game and see what people come up with then let the mom take them home and use the baby things. This cupcake is a great idea I just wish that we could get a better picture.

The picture of the diaper cupcake is difficult to see. I would like to beable to see the top of the cupcake, but it is too small & blurry. I even tried to enlarge it, but I did not have that option. It sure does sound cute for a baby shower!
