This is a sponsored post that is written on behalf of The Motherhood and Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. I am super excited to share my love of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste with you!!
I am all about filling my baby bag with the best items that I can find for my daughter. I have been using Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Original for the last two years. The diapers have changed, the diaper bags have gotten cuter, but Boudreaux’s Butt Paste has steadily been my go-to diaper rash cream. We use the Original Boudreaux’s Butt Paste as a preventative measure to make sure that my daughter does not get any rashes. If she does get a rash, we use Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Maximum Strength to get rid of it as quickly as possible.
I recently tried the Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Natural and was extremely happy with the rash preventing powers. It has natural ingredients with soothing aloe, and it’s petrolatum-free.

All the Boudreaux’s Butt Pastes, go on and cleans off easily. They work great so that I can spend time playing with my daughter, making dinner, and crafting! Since I am not worried about what is going in my diaper bag, I can focus on making the bag as pretty as possible. I decided to make bag charm made out of tassels to embellish my diaper bag.
Bag Charm Tutorial
Tools & Supplies
6 Different Colors of Cotton Floss
Piece of Cardboard
Nylon Rope (Recycled from shopping bag handle)
Large Keyring or Shower Curtain Ring
Cut a piece of cardboard to a little bit (~1/8 inch) larger than the size of the tassel you want to make. I wanted about a little over an inch size tassels so I made cut the cardboard to and 1 1/2 inches.
For each package of floss, you can make 2 – 1 inch long tassels. I found this to be best, but if you want fluffy fat tassels, you can use the entire floss package to make 1 tassel.
Cut off about a foot of string. Next, cut off about a 3 inch piece of string from the foot you just cut off.
Spool the floss around the cardboard in an ascending motion so that they overlap. The thickness of the tassel will depend on how much embroidery floss you use.
Thread the 3 inch piece of string underneath the thread on the cardboard on the side where all the treads are folder over and not cut. Tie it off to make the top of the tassel.
Pull the tassel off the cardboard. Use the rest of 1 foot string and tie around the top of the tassel. This forms the head of the tassel. Make a few knots and then with the longer end, start wrapping around leaving long enough end to tie it off again. Make a few knots and cut of the excess string.
Find the middle of the tassel and cut the strings in the middle.
Bunch the tassel together to trim the edges using a very sharp scissors.
I made about 30 or so tassels in 6 different colors for the bag charm.
Using a Nylon Rope and Large Keyring or Shower Curtain Ring, loop the nylon rope around the keyring and knot the bottom of the rope.
Feed the top of the tassel into the nylon rope and knot a times.
Stagger the placement of the tassels so that they lay in ascending way like a staircase rather than bunched up all in one place. Try not to leave any holes in the bag charm.
