Celebrate

I know I do talk a lot about May Day, but I had to share the cutest! You can make up a simple basket and attach one of these darling tags. If you need ideas for May Day Baskets you can check out all ourMay Day Basket Ideas. Each year I try to come up with something new. It really depends each year if we have flowers blooming so some of the ideas use potted plants. That makes it super easy. If you do have flowers I love this prettyprintable May Day Basket.

This Cone May Day Basket couldnt be any simpler. It is made from a 12 inch square of card-stock, a doily, glue stick and twine.  The gift tags can be printed on any color of 8 1/2 X 11 card-stock.  I used kraft color to match my paper cone basket.

Download the gift tags, print on card-stock and cut out.  Punch a hole at the top.

Roll the 12 inch square of paper into a cone. Fasten with glue stick.

Wrap a doily around the cone and fasten with glue stick in the back.  I used a 10 inch doily.

Punch holed in each side of the cone and feed the twine through tying a knot on each side.  Make sure to leave enough twine to hang over your friends doorknob. The gift tag can be attached on the side where you tide the knot or on the front.  I wrapped the twine around the cone and fastened the gift tag with a bow.  It must be snug to keep it from slipping down.  A bit of hot glue in the back (and possibly under the bow) would keep it more secure.

Fill the cone with flowers and hang on your friends door!  Be sneaky! It is supposed to be a surprise!
