Who would have thought diapers could form a boat??
I received an email from Calgary for a delivery in Victoria (awesome!) as this wonderful lady found me on the glorious interwebs and loved my work! She asked if I could create a diaper cake for her coworker and deliver it on their behalf (yay me!). She wanted a diaper cake for a little boy in a nautical theme, and gave me creative freedom to do as I chose within the budget I was provided. This is when the wheels start churning.. well, when my mind started doing it’s normal crazy things.
Initially I thought I would be able to find some nautical themed baby items for boys… I’d do a two-tiered cake, and add my special touches with anchors and boats. Then… as I sat drawing my design, a new thought appeared. Why not create a diaper cake in the shape of a boat? I’ve done owls, bikes, sundaes, bassinets… lets create a boat!!
So there went my pencil…and I made a prototype in my design book. Some diapers, some blankets, and a flag to make it legit of course.
So, there you have it. As final as it could be on paper, I was pretty set with this vision.
And.. out shopping I went! I was so excited to have found some adorable nautical themed items (blankets, onesie, receiving blanket) from Garanimals – little boats, anchors, teddy… can it get any cuter? For toiletries, I chose Aveeno Baby, and I included a Carters brand 3-piece set (sleeper, bib, and hat), and English/French 7 Days of the Week Bibs!
On to the transformation I went.. What do you think of the end result?
I have to say this was my favourite new design of 2014! Over 60 diapers later.. this little boat was on it’s way to a deserving mama & baby!
Let me know what you think of this transformation! Did I do my design justice?!? Leave a comment below!
