Supplies needed for this project are:
Flannel - Lightweight - color of your choice
Brass safety pins- 0,00 size
Ruler or tape measure
Paraffin Wax- candle or canning
Knife and cutting board (for the wax)
Double boiler or two pans that fit together to make one
Spoon, tongs, foil or wax paper
Nuts and mints or small candies like M&M;'s
Step 1: Measure and Cut Your Fabric
I then folded the the corners in to make a diaper shape, finishing it with a pin, to hold the corners together.
Step 2: Next Melt Your Wax and Dip Your Diaper
While the wax is melting lay a sheet of wax paper or aluminum foil on the counter to set your finished product on.
Lay the diaper in the melted wax. I used the tongs to pick up the diaper and let the excess wax drain off. Then I carefully slid my fingers inside to make the diaper into the nut cup shape. I then set it on the aluminum foil to cool. You may reshape as needed while it is cooling. I even leaned this one up against a pill vial to make sure that the back of the diaper stayed flat. (this was something I have never done before it seemed to work well)
Step 3: The Finished Product
I hope you enjoy making these old fashioned party favors, but hey.. retro is cool!!
