May Day Basket

On the first of May it is a time to leave a lovely surprise waiting on a neighbors door -- a May Day basket! 
 Here are the supplies you'll need for your paper May Day Basket:
  • Heavy paper, either scrapbooking paper or construction paper, at least 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. (I used scrapbooking paper that was 12 x 12; cardstock weight worked best, but I used some lighter-weight sheets, too.
  • A glue stick , double sided tape or Elmers glue.
  • Scissors
  • Large popsicle sticks
  • Embellishments for the inside of your paper flowers, such as pom poms or buttons.
  • A short piece of ribbon or string for attaching the tag.
  • A paper punch would make attaching the tag easier.
  • Easter grass
  • This awesome free printable template from Skip to my Lou, which is a great site full of arts & craft tutorials, ideas for handmade gifts and free printables.
