I said on my post that I don't remember what site I got instructions off of but I just found it saved on my desktop.
I went to www.cutest-baby-shower-ideas.com and www.creativebabyshowerideas.com. (Clicking on those should open the links in new windows.)
I found those pages my Googleing "How to make a diaper cake". I looked at a few different pages but those are the ones I used. I didn't use a baby bottle in the middle though. I just used diapers. And I also didn't use pins, like one of the sites suggested. I used regular rubber bands on the individual diapers and big size rubber bands to hold all the diapers in a tier together. (I didn't bother trying to find clear ones either.) I put ribbon around the rubber band to hide it. I over lapped a bit and using double sided tape to secure the ribbon to itself. To get the tiers to stay together a bit better, I carefully ran 3 wooden dowels down through the diapers.
Hope that makes sense and can help you.

Wrap each diaper in a rubber band with design on the inside, then make the base of all diapers, attach ribbon to hold it together with tape. This is where the extra hands are useful. Then do layer 2, this is where I put hte onesies. Then layer 3. Layer 3 has 5 or 6 diapers in. Once it's all in place, replace the tape with hot glue. The scotch tape doesn't' hold the ribbon well. Add your other accessories as you like.
Same basic instructions as above, but I added more baby accessories by tucking them in the ribbons used to hold each layer together.
