Diaper Cake version 2.0

Some my cousin and his wife are expecting a baby, due in September, and I, along with my mom and sister, are hosting a baby shower in August. Well, for those of you who do not know, I teach in the public school system. and this just happens to be our first week of summer vacation. I tend to be like a work dog, though, and frequently do not know what to do with myself when I excess free time. I have spent copious amounts of time this week planning (and re-planning) this baby shower. And I decided to put my creative energy to use making another diaper cake.

Now, I will not bore with a tutorial as I did before. And I did not take copious amounts of before pictures of all fun objects I included. So I'll just show you the final product, with some details as to what it's inside.

1. 96 Newborn Diapers -$29.99
2. I supplemented with 9 Size 1 Diapers left over from the diaper wreath
3. 2 Soothie Pacifers $3.99
4. Bright Starts Teething Toys (3 pack)$3.99
5. Johnson and Johnson First Touch Gift Set (Head to Toe Wash, Shampoo, Lotion, Desitin) $9.99
6. Johnson and Johnson Travel Set (Baby Powder,Head to Toe Wash, Shampoo, Lotion, Desitin)    $2.99
7. 2 Bottle Brushes $2.99
8. Newborn Brush and Comb Set $1.99
9. Newborn Nail Clipping Set (Scissors, Clippers, Emmery Boards) $1.99
10. 3 Playtex Ventaire Bottles $12.99
11. Aspirator $0.99
12. Bib (in one of the bottles)  $10.99

Other Supplies
1. Cheap Platter $2.99
2. Ribbon $1.50
3. Rubber Bands (already had them) Free

Total: $91.75 (adjusted for appropriate sales tax)
Still Need to Get
1. Topper-looking for a fun stuffed animal to match the nursery
2. Fillers for 2 of the bottles. 1 already has an M&M bib I purchased up in NYC. Another is going to have a baby tutu, and the other a ballerina sleeper. Neither have been secured yet.

Overall, I was pretty happy with how it turned out. It certainly wasn't as cheap as I had hoped, but I think it'll be well worth it.
