Baby Shower Invites and Favors

Diaper Cake

This is the cake my friend made me for my baby shower.

For her baby shower, I didn't want to copy her so I used paper to decorate her cake. I think it turned out really cute. It's also nice to be able to use paper that I had in my stash.

Fourth of July Cupcakes

When I was younger, we would make a 4th of July cake with white frosting and used strawberries and blueberries to make a flag. We decided to try something different this year. I bought a white cake mix, followed the instructions on the box and then divided the batter into three bowls. Add a ton of red and blue food coloring and then layer it the cupcake wrappers.

Flag Shirt

The blue square is levi appliqued on but not sewn. I used a square of fusible web that was smaller than the levi so it would fray when washed. The stripes are grosgrain ribbon attached with Fabri-tac. Buttons are hand sewn on.
