Making May Day Baskets!

Make petite banner flags and fasten around
a decorative toothpick.
We used pink & white banners from Martha Stewart.
We picked up these sweet petite baskets from the $1.00 spot
at Target. We bought extra to use in organization as well.
Fill with shred add a sweet ribbon for a handle.
We used our number ribbon for the "1st of May"!
Use a decorative paper punch and punch two designs out.
Put the wrong sides together. Add a brad near the top of medallion, we used our petite diamond brad.
Now you have a card-like tag. Open.......
Add a second banner and use a corsage pin and poke through.....
Write a sentiment of your choice on banner.
Turn over and secure pin we used tiny vintage style tape to keep pin
from poking your recipients fingers!
Use a tiny hole punch to punch through medallion and
tie with twine through hole onto front of basket.
Put fresh flowers into basket, we used fragrant Viburnum.
Lilly- of- the -Valley would be lovely too......
Stick the banner into flowers.
{We tied a ribbon around toothpick and stamped
a hand holding a bird onto banner......
Ready to tuck on a special friend's doorknob,
now quick hurry away, don't let them see you!
The hand that gives is always blessed........

Happy May Day to all our friends!
