First-time moms, beware: make certain you have plenty of diapers on hand. Your little one will go through them faster than you think is possible. We’ve all had the experience of realizing you’ve already used your last one.

We recommend amassing a collection of plenty of diapers! It is always a good time to stock up on Pampers. What is even better is you can use Sam’s Club Scan & Go and Club Pickup service to bypass the register, making stocking up even easier and faster. You’ll save time and money plus you can accumulate enough diapers for rainy days and dry nights to give you peace of mind.

Even if you’re past the new baby stage at your house, you probably still remember all those darling newborn outfits you received at your baby shower. You might also recall there were several baby never got to wear because the right size and the right season didn’t line up.

Diaper Cake Topper

That’s not an issue when you give diapers as a gift. And if you make a diaper cake, your present is automatically gift wrapped! Here’s how to make one.

Modern Diaper Cake Ideas



  • 50 size-1 diapers
  • 50 small rubber bands
  • 5 rubber bands (2 medium, 3 large)
  • empty paper towel holder
  • 2 pieces of scrapbook paper (two different but coordinating patterns)
  • 1 6-foot strand of felt ball garland
  • clear tape
  • paper straws
  • “Oh Baby” topper printable

Note: The paper towel holder is optional, but we found it did help keep the cake together when assembling it. It was extremely easy to remove and replace with diapers later.

Ideas for Diaper Cakes

1. Start by rolling the diapers. After trial and error, roll from the top down to make the smoothest diaper roll.
2. Stand the paper towel holder up on one end and rubber band one diaper to the base using one medium rubber band. Add more diapers around the base until you’ve made a complete circle. Add a large rubber band around the first layer and tuck diapers inside the large rubber band until you’ve completed the circle. Add a large rubber band around the diapers and tuck a third layer of diapers into it.
3. Repeat with the top layer, but only make two layers of diapers.
4. Cut the scrapbook paper 2 ¼ inches wide. You’ll need two and a half strips for the bottom layer and two strips for the top layer. Tape/glue strips together and wrap them around each layer of the cake.
5. Place the diaper cake on a cake stand and replace the paper towel holder with diapers.
6. Wrap the felt ball garland around the cake. Secure with clear tape.
7. Cut out the printable and tape it to paper straws. Insert straws into the top of the cake.
