I remember making these as kids. Or maybe receiving them from our neighbors. In either case, May Day baskets are a fun, lighthearted way to wish a little spring cheer on your neighbors. In case you don't know the tradition, flowers are placed on your neighbor's doorstep, or in baskets like these on their door handle. You ring the bell, and run away. If they catch you, they're allowed a kiss. I didn't tell my little helper that part, for fear he wouldn't help me. We made these with leftover envelope liners from a custom invitation job, and they are pretty simple- just roll a little sheet of paper, affix into cone shape with a staple, and add a length of ribbon, also affixed with two staples. I pre-ordered daisies from our friends at Pistil and Vine, because I really wanted to evoke that nostalgic feeling with these sweet little door hangers.
any of you celebrate May Day today?
