when you are a bit of a crafty lady sometimes other ladies will get together and convince you that you should be in charge of the crafty part of a baby shower and you will want to because it's fun. you'd much rather be challenged to create a cake out of diapers than you would, for instance, do some public speaking in front of the county commissioners.
the receiving blankets all came in a pack so they matched (all from walmart too). when I opened them they were kind of folded in long strips so I left them like that. I safety-pinned them into big loops, all different sizes so they'd stack. then turned the loop inside-out to hide the pins. then started sort of spiraling diapers in real tight and stretching it out as I went to keep it firm.
this picture below is the bottom of a layer. the diapers line right up with the blanket. on the top where there was extra fabric I folded it and just stuck pins in to make that nice smooth curve.
the ribbon came with the packaging for the blankets. bonus. I used it to decorate some layers and make loops to attach toys and things. those spoons are stuck into a safety pin.
here's the back where the seams are. the board I put it all on (not needed but I'd bought a blanket for it anyway) is some thick cardboard. I tucked the blanket around the bottom and just taped it down.
little sockies just stuck on with a straight pin again. kind of hidden inside because I'm fancy like that.
