Free Stuff for Twins

After having the twins, I learned you can get multiple items and coupons for free! Here is the letter I wrote:


To Whom It May Concern:


On January 29th, my husband and I became the proud parents of twins.  We understand that your company offers promotional products (or coupons) to families with multiples.  We would like to take advantage of this offer.  Enclosed are copies of birth certificates for our children.


Thank you for your time, consideration, and support.  We greatly appreciate it!

I was in the hospital for a month, so I typed the letter and had my husband print them and bring them to me in the hospital. After the twins were born, we were still there for a while and got their birth certificates in only a couple days, so I had him make copies of them for me to put with the letters. Like I said, I was in the hospital for a month, so I stuffed the envelopes and mailed them out. Within a week or two, my mailbox started getting full! Here are the companies I wrote to and what I received:

Motorcycle Diaper Cake

Ok, so this was my attempt to make a cute motorcycle diaper cake for a co-worker.  Although I wouldn’t say it was a fail, it def didnt come out as cute as I thought it would!


Supplies needed:

8″ round cake pan

34 Diapers

2 Rubber Bands

Ribbon of your choice

Pearlhead Push Pins

Two Swaddle Blankets



Socks or Booties (optional)

Stuffed Animal (Optional)




Take half of the diapers (17) and put them into a pinwheel formation in the cake pan.  You use the cake pan to hold them or else they would be everywhere!  Once you have them all in place, place a rubber band around them to secure them.  I used a thin ribbon since I had no rubber bands!  DO this twice, once for each wheel.



Next, place your ribbon around the “wheel” and secure with headpins.

You are now ready to assemble your wheels.  Take one of the receiving blankets and thread it thru the back wheel.  Tuck the other end to the front wheel.


For the handlebars, thread the other receiving blanket thru the front wheel.  Make it even on each side and using a rubber band or ribbon, tie together and fold each side over to make the handles.


Take your bib and place it over the fire “tire” and put the bottle under the handlebars.


It is complete!  You can add a stuffed animal on it or socks on the handlebar ends if you want.

Instructions:  I used InDesign to make these.  I added things like “I hope you love…”, “I hope you learn…”, etc.  I had guests fill them out when they came to see the twins and had them sign the bottom.  I plan on putting them in their scrapbook.
