Fans of unique presents for baby showers know that diaper “cakes” — rolled up diapers made to look like tiers on a cake — were extremely popular last year. Why limit yourself to one cake when you can make a few “mini-cupcakes” with our adorable baby bodysuits? They’re easier to pass out and hold more variety for the mom-to-be.
2. Jumbo cupcake wrappers
3. 1 yard of 1.5 inch ribbon (1 foot per “cupcake”)
4. Red pom-poms
5. Double-sided tape
Step 1: Fold the baby bodysuit in half, length-wise. Then, fold in the sleeves, followed by folding the suit in half again (lengthwise).
Step 2: Once the bodysuit is in a long strip, start at one end and roll the baby bodysuit until it’s a tight spiral. Attach double-sided tape to secure the spiral (or “onesie cupcake”).
Step 3: Take a piece of ribbon and attach it to the double-sided tape. Wrap around the “cupcake” completely. Take one more piece of double-sided tape to secure the cupcake and ribbon together.
Step 4: Take a red pom-pom and stick it on top of the cupcake (like a cherry!). This will also add a nice pop of color.
