I purchased the platinum and their blurred lines washi tape, they honestly turn everyday projects into simply inspired creations. You can find these items in the paper craft isle in Walmart.

- Baby diapers
- 1 Paper towel roll
- Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Platinum
- Scotch® Create Double Sided Tape
- Baby items of your choice
Step 1: Roll each diaper and secure it by placing Scotch® Create Double Sided Tape around the middle of the rolled diaper.
Step 2: Place a paper towel roll in the middle of a base or just simply place it on the table (like I did) and start placing the rolled diapers around the paper towel roll. Make sure to fit it nice and tight.
Step 3: Place a ribbon around the diapers and tie it, to make sure the diapers do not fall out of place.
Step 4: Add 2 more layers (total of 3 layers) of rolled diapers and again secure it and tie it with a ribbon. You will see that you will need more diapers as the layers increases.
Step 5. Using Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Platinum, you want to place it on top of the ribbon you tied your diapers with. Place a piece of Scotch® Create One Sided Tape to the ends of the glitter tape, to make sure it doesn’t come off. Doesn’t it look amazing already?
Step 6: Now, to your second tier, this time you will make two layers of rolled diapers. Follow the same steps from above. Easy Peasy!
Step 7: With the second tier, I used the Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape Blurred Lines, to add a fun and different element to the diaper cake. I love the different varieties of Scotch® Tapes you can use. And, you know what? If you’re armed with Scotch™ Brand, you definitely got this.
Step 8: The third tier, you will only need to make one layer of rolled diapers. Again, tie it with a ribbon and then place the Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape Platinum on top of it. Secure it with a piece of Scotch® Create One Sided Tape.
Step 9: Now it’s time to decorate your diaper cake! I simply added a few baby items like a comb, rattle, and baby bibs. I also, added a few feathers and colorful ribbons that I purchased at a discount store. This is the time to release your creative side and decorate it how ever you want.
Step 10: Be proud of your own diaper cake, You did it!
I was super proud when I finished making this diaper cake because I honestly thought I couldn’t do it. What I love is that this diaper cake was affordable to make and the Scotch® Brand made that possible. The Scotch® Brand products are price conscious which is great because aren’t we always looking for ways to save money? I also, made sure to buy a few items from a discount store and looked around my house to see what other craft items I could use.
