Mayday! Mayday! I Missed May Day!

Last year, for the first time ever, I received a May Day basket. Oh? You're not familiar? Me neither. But I kinda loved it. A lot. I mean, who doesn't appreciate candy, flowers and little trinkets in celebration of spring?

I decided then and there that I was going to adopt this tradition and make and deliver my own May Day baskets this year. But, guess what. I forgot. May Day totally snuck up on me. Grr.

So, last night, in a fit of crafty rage, I created 5 baskets - without having to buy a thing! Don't you love stash busters?!

I took some beautiful spring paper, ribbon, pinwheels, flowers I got from my friend Morissa over at Shamrock Stamper and candy and got to work:

I started by rolling the paper into cones and securing the seam with a tape runner and a bit of glue. Then I punched holes in the top two sides for the ribbon. I embellished with some springy flowers, using pop-up squares, added a pinwheel and some candy and called it a day:

Not to fancy or thought out, but still super cute (if I do say so myself)!
