May Day Baskets Whisker Graphics Design Team Project

Don't ya just love spring?!
I do realize May Day is a month away........
but that means you'll have plenty of time to make
these May Day favor baskets to leave on your
friends and neighbors porches.


Whisker Graphics Middy Bitty Bags & Little Bitty Bags
Whisker Graphics Large Colored Tags
Glue stick
Hole punch
Hole reinforcers
Mulberry paper flowers
Rubber letter stamps and ink

Round edge of middy bitty bag.

Scallop the edge of the little bitty bag.

Rub a generous amount of glue on the back side of the
little bitty bag.

Place the little bitty bad in the center of the middy bitty bag.

Punch a hole in each side of the middy bitty bag.
Make sure the holes are in far enough so the bag doesn't
tear when hanging.

I used hole reinforcers on each side of the bag. This will help
eliminate any tearing that may happen when the May Day
basket is hanging.

Make a little tag to attach to the treat bag.

Stamp a May Day greeting to the tag and attach it to the
bag with ribbon.

Use a piece of ribbon long enough to use as a hanger for the bag too.

I used some mulberry paper flowers to finish things off.

The colors and patterns of these bags are so fun!
The combinations are limitless.

I couldn't resist making a gray and pink combo too!

Super pretty and spring-eee.....!

Fill the Middy Bitty Bag with some spring blooms
and the Little Bitty Bag with some sweet treats.

And go door bell ditch your friends.     ;)

Have a Happy May Day.......... even though
it's a month away.....!   ;)
