How to: May Day Basket

May is almost here and this coming Tuesday my students and I will be delivering tissue paper flowers in paper baskets around the neighborhood, so I was inspired to make my own more permanent version of a May Day basket! 

Here's how to make one:

 (Mine was 8"x8")


 (I did a blanket stitch along the edges of each point for a finished look.)

I added buttons to my stitches! 

To find out how I made my flowers go to my tutorial!

Add flowers, a note, or whatever and deliver to a special person or surprise someone!  I'd love to see what people do for their own baskets.  Happy May!
