I love May Day. This celebration of spring has it's roots in Roman times, and many European countries celebrate the first day of spring with May Pole dances, music, and my favorite, the May Day Basket. Left anonymously on your neighbors' front door, this sweet gesture is a thoughtful, simple way to spread good cheer. That's pretty much why I embrace it, along with being to share a fun tradition with my boys. A May day basket can be put together very easily, with a few sprigs of flowers to fill it out. All you need is --a few sheets of 8.5x11 cardstock Tip: Use construction paper, or download our new marble design (below), and print out at home. --ribbon --stapler --flowers
Roll the cardstock into a cone and staple the bottom to prevent the flowers from slipping through. staple the sides in a couple places to hold.
Then, cut a length of ribbon and staple to each side. (outside with a long tail would be pretty too!)
Fill with your favorite bloom...
..and spread the love!
