Diaper Butterflies

Diaper Butterflies

Diaper Butterflies

To make my diaper butterflies, I first take one diaper (I usually use size one but have had requests for larger ones and did those as well), a baby washcloth, some tulle, and a chenille stem.


I roll the baby washcloth up with the stem folded in half sticking out the top of the washcloth, and then I take four small pieces of ribbon and tie them around the washcloth to keep it secure, and take a long piece of ribbon to tie around the diaper to keep the washcloth (the butterfly's 'body') in place.

The tulle is simply tucked underneath the washcloth 'body', and no glue or tape is used, this way the new Mom can use both the diaper and the washcloth! When done attaching everything, I just bend the chenille stem to look like antenna and it's all done. The creator of these cute baby shower favors is me, Wendy, owner of Diaper Cakes By Wendy. :)

Hi!

I do not use card stock, but you could cut out a piece the same size as the diaper and use it under the body instead of tulle. :-)

Just love the idea
by: Gerrie

When i saw these I said to myself, I have to take the time to make these for my sisters shower. She lost her first baby and was really sad but god is great because after that he blessed her with twin baby girls. I can't wait for her to see them. I was very careful so she could reuse everthing but if I know her she won't ever take them apart there just too cute. Thanks you for being so creative.

So perfect!

My oldest daughter has made it to 12 weeks after losing a baby this past summer. (She and her sister were due one week apart.) We really wanted something special for her shower and this is so absolutely perfect! She is such a butterfly lover that she has several different tattoos of them. I can't wait to make these for her. Thank you so much!!

I modified a little
by: Laura

I didn't really like the tulle so I used card stock paper and replaced it with butter fly wings. I slid it under just the same and then added detail on the wings with market very cute! My sis in law will love it!
