Changing your baby was never meant to be something you can look forward to. It's one of those things that just goes along with being a parent. I believe that whatever you can do to make changing time a little bit easier or more enjoyable, take full advantage of it. So with this thought, I have begun, diaper origami. Origami, the art of folding paper, takes on a new change with diaper folding. Here are 4 diaper folding techniques that I have mastered in the first 3 months of Rylan's life. A great man once said; in time, will come more.
Snow Cone - A difficult folding technique that requires skill and patience. Quite possibly one of the most difficult folds which in turn does a great job at holding in its contents. The vision that something may be sitting on top of the cone is what makes this technique a popular one.
Small Package - This technique provides a very small compact finished product. You will likely be able to dispose of twice as many diapers in a garbage bag with this technique. What is kept within this small package can keep everyone guessing.
Throwing Knife - Used for centuries now as a throwing knife to combat offending armies. It is not a fluke that diapers prepared like this caused bodily harm. The edges are razor sharp. Do not try this technique without proper guidance.
Space Ship/Boomerang - This technique has 2 names depending on where you live. The Aussies call this technique the Boomerang due to it's similarity. It too, can be used for a weapon. Other parts of the world simply relate this to a space ship. The diaper can certainly contain out of this world contents.
