Baby Shower Diaper/Nappie Nut Cups

Baby Shower Diaper/Nappie Nut Cups


By RushÂ’d Lady, 2004

These nut cups are so cute! Serve these at your next baby shower & listen to the oohs & aahs! My girlfriend made these nut cups for a recent baby shower and I have written the directions on how to make them below.

Materials:



Square Paper Dinner Napkins in White or Assorted Pastel Colors, 1 per person

1 diaper pin per nut cup

mixed roasted nuts or

pastel buttermint pillow candies

Directions:

1. There are two sides of the paper napkin with a folded edge and two with single edges. Fold the single edge sides to the corner between the folded edges to make a triangle. The single edges should be on top and therefore will be the inside or middle of the nut cup. (Click HERE for illustrations>

2. Place the triangle so it is pointing toward you. The new fold you just made will be the “waist” of the diaper cup. Fold points of triangle towards the waist and pin together with the diaper pin. Be sure to fold corners together so there isn’t any holes nuts or mints could fall out of.

3. Pull the cup open and smash corners down slightly at the “leg openings” to make the nut cup stand open. Spoon in the nuts or mints. Stand several on a paper doily covered tray at the reception table or if you are setting tables, place on or near the top of the plate at your table settings.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
