Don’t you just love products that are fun and “fun-ctional”?  This is especially true for Babyville’s colorful snaps.  As a functional closure on baby’s diaper, they do a great job, especially when older babies learn to pull apart those hook and loop closures. We think adding snaps to diapers in contrasting colors gives the diaper character and adds the “fun” distinction. 

Since we launched Babyville almost five years ago, we have been delighted by the many ideas and projects that our designers and consumer friends have created using snaps. Here are a few ideas we love and we know you can probably add a few of your own to this list.

 

 

1. Colorful mix of snaps on diapers – this is a great way to extend the use of snaps and use all of the leftover mismatched components.

2. Add snaps to a gathered ruffle and change the look of your baby’s diaper in no time.

3. Head to Toe Accessories – make matching headbands to go with every outfit using snaps to attach flowers or bows to fold over elastic headbands or to the regular fabric covered bands. Since FOE makes great straps to help keep flip-flops on little feet, adding snaps to the elastic makes the sandals even cuter. 


4. As Colorful Accents – Snaps were added to this holiday treat bag to decorate the Christmas tree applique.

5. Around the house – make reusable “unpaper towels” to save money and reduce trash.

Of course, snaps have many functional uses from baby’s bibs to wipes cases and wetbags; but, once you get started, it’s so easy to find inspiration for using them in different ways. Be sure to check our website and our Pinterest boards for lots of other creative ideas!
