For the diaper baby you just need a "fluffy" and ideally white diaper, a pair of socks, some ribbon and a felt pen to draw the sleepy eyes with.
If there's a prominent design on the diaper, the baby's face will not look nice and cute but rather stained. So a plain diaper is the best. Here's the diaper baby tutorial, go to the "sock diaper baby" section.
For your "sleeping bag", all you need is a square burp cloth with an approx. size of 30 x 30 inches. If you only find rectangular ones, that's not a problem, just fiddle a bit with your folding. Moreover, it's nice if the cloth is made of organic cotton but not a must.
For folding your cloth, the baby's sleeping bag that is, follow the arrows on the photos below. Lay out your cloth and fold it over once (step 1), then fold it a second time, so it roughly has a width of about 7-8 inches (step 2). Afterwards fold in the bottom and then the top (step 3). Make sure your design is correct so later it's not upside down on the finished diaper baby.
Next, place your sock diaper baby on top of your folded cloth (step 4). And finally fold the bottom of your cloth over the baby's belly, wrap a nice ribbon around and - if you have one - place your bear sticker beside the baby. Then add your message such as "You are going to be a daddy" and have fun presenting it to your surprised family members!
This also is a sweet idea for your godmother, godfather or godparents proposal. Even if you have already given birth you can still use this diaper baby in a burp cloth idea to ask "Will you be my godmother", "Will you be my godfather" or "Will you be my godparents"?
Since you know baby's sex by then you can make a pink or blue baby accordingly and also use a girlish or boyish burp cloth for your godparents proposal.
You can do your stickers by hand: Just cut a round or heart or any other shape using some cardboard or thicker paper. You can also buy colorful sticky post-it notes in various shapes.
Writing down your message: Use a black felt pen for your message. Letter stencils are also great for a neat writing. There's also sets to master calligraphy and hand lettering in no time.
Alternatively create your writing online (for example with power point) or design and order your (ready-made) stickers at an online shop.
