This PDF pattern includes clear step-by-step instructions with illustrations to construct your pattern and create the simple no-sew framework. There is also link to a video tutorial to stuff and wrap your diaper cake.

****As your embellishment options are endless, it does not include instructions to decorate your cake. A large number of embellishment options you see in the photo (and more) are available by clicking on the author's name above on this page.****

Once your pattern is complete, it should take less than 10 minutes to trace the pattern on a poster board, cut it out and tape it together. You will need Scotch tape and an inexpensive poster board. They’re remarkably sturdy once the blankets and diapers are added and the pattern folds together small enough to fit in your file cabinet for your next diaper cake gift.

The pattern is not worth the $ fee. So simple to make and the decorations have to be purchased separately - really? This seems to be a money maker only. The finished project looks sloppy in the video. Very disappointed.

I loved this! Extremely easy to assemble and I love that I didn't have to buy a ton of diapers, but could incorporate other items that would be useful without spending most of the budget for the gift on the diapers themselves.

It is a very unique idea to give as a gift! i love making diaper cakes , but a turvy one is actually awesome! I like the way the pattern its set , my only problem is that the video is kind of hard to follow. Other than that great pattern.

I purchased both the square and the round Topsy Turvy Diaper Cake patterns. After reading the pdf materials and watching the videos (which are very well written and prepared), I can't wait to get started on one or both of these adorable ideas! My dil will find out if the baby is a girl or boy tomorrow and then I will be off to the store to buy the goodies to make this project. I can't wait. I'm sure it will be the center piece of the baby shower! Wonderfully done!

I give the instructions a five star rating! They are very clear on paper, and they make the construction very easy. It would be nice to have just one file to download/save, but the finished product is what I am most concerned about. I will NEVER do another ordinary diaper cake/wreath again. Thank you for an excellent product!

Good instructions. Very inventive. Would have given it a 5 but I don't like the delivery of the insructions in a password protected video.

The bottom frame work is designed to fit the standard size, 30” X 40” baby blanket. The middle one will accommodate any size blanket but works best with a smaller one. Burp cloths or receiving blankets are perfect for the top layer.

50 Size 3 diapers (I prefer the Up and Up brand at target)
9 corsage pens or diaper pens (I prefer the round pearl heads.)
Roll of double sided tape (Optional)
