Ok so first off, a “nappy” is the British term for diapers. No, I’m not British. I do, however, have a very big love for everything British and one day hope to go back just to hear them talk.
And second off, EVERYONE is pregnant! Maybe not everyone. Certainly not me. But there are many who are expecting little bundles of joy soon!
I got the honor to make some of these Napkin Nappies for a shower recently to put nuts and mints in. I think that my favorite part about these, besides the fact that they are so darn cute, is that they are so inexpensive to make. You might even have the materials already on-hand! So cute for any shower, both boy or girl! When I was making these, I kept walking around saying, Would you like some nuts from a nappy?
I grabbed the blue napkins at Dollar Tree and also some safety pins since I can never find those at home. Those are one of those things that I tend to buy each time I can’t find them and then end up with 20 packages of safety pins when I’m not looking. Thermometers are in the same boat. I have 10 of them…
Here are the steps that even an ape can do!
Start by folding the napkin in half into a triangle.
Next, fold the tip of the triangle up until it reaches the top edge.
Then, take the right corner and fold it in towards the middle, overlapping the middle by a little.
Fold the right corner into the middle as well, overlapping the left corner like so.
Using a safety pin (watch your fingers!), pin through all layers starting on one side and pushing through to the front again.
And there you have a simple, yet adorable way to serve little goodies for your baby shower!
Have you ever made these before? If you plan to try, let me know how it goes!

THANK YOU, I TRIED DOING IT AND IT CAME OUT GOOD, THANKS AGAIN
How do you get them to stand up on the platter? I used cocktail size napkins.
Thanks so much for this cute idea. I’m using them as take home favors for a baby boy shower.
