Coors Light 6 Packs to super cute baby shower gifts??? YES PLEASE!

I make a diaper cake for EVERY baby shower I go to.  But, what do you get the person who you know will end up with MULTIPLE diaper cakes???  I have a friend who has a HUGE family and tons of friends, I could pretty much guarantee that she would get a few.  Who needs 5 diaper cakes???  lol  Usually when I make them, I'm typically the ONLY person who makes them.  But I knew I had to do something different, AND we were low on cash.

There is is, HELLOOOOOO Coors Light!  lol!  This friend happened to be a pretty frequent drinker.  Like us, very social, goes to the desert, goes to the river, goes to the popular bars in our part of San Diego.  Not an alcoholic or anything.  lol
So... what would you do with this?

turn it to....

Cute, right?

I went to walmart and asked for one of the 6 pack boxes, so that was FREE!  

Then I spent $5.00 on a scrapbook kit at walmart.

$1.00 on a pack of glittery self adhesive letters at walmart.

and Voila!

Then you stuff it with whatever your heart desires!  I originally wanted to stuff it with the large bottles of soaps and lotions for baby, but once I was at walmart and saw the size of the slots, I didn't thing that would work to well.   SO, I got something I LOVED when I was a new mommy, all the travel sizes!  I got powder, soap, shampoo, lotion, diaper rash cream.  Then in the extra holes I stuffed in a 2 piece outfit and a sleeper! :D  SUPER cute!

I definitely spent under $50 total, and usually when I do a diaper cake I end up spending closer to $100 just cause I end up going ALL out.  At least this way I was confined to the small spaces in the box so I couldn't really spend all that much. 

If you make one, leave me a comment, I'd LOVE to see pictures of yours!  And by the way, the Momma LOVED it! :D  I have a few other pregnant friends who I probably won't go to the shower cause we're not super super close but I'd love to deliver one of these to their house.  So, you'll probably see another one of these in the near future.  lol

And P.S. for anyone waiting for an update on my breast lump biopsy and aspiration tests... STILL haven't heard back.  :(  I've been so busy I haven't had much time to think about it.  LUCKILY!  I think all my friends are purposefully keeping me busy which I'm extremely blessed and thankful for.
