Did you celebrate May Day as a child? We would make May Day basket or cones to deliver to friends and neighbors. Just put them on the door knob, ring the doorbell and run! And we would receive them at our door too. It was always exciting!
My almost 3 years old niece came over and we made May Day cones. This one was for her big brother, even though she told me, “He don’t want a purse!”
Choose a 12×12 piece of patterned scrapbook paper. What color for a 3 year old girl? Pink, of course!
Roll the paper into a cone shape with the pattern on the inside. Draw a line where you can to cut the top.
Unfold the paper and cut along the line you drew with a scalloped edge scissors.
Now you have a funky shape pieces of paper.
Apply glue to one corner of the paper on the backside. I drew a line so my niece would know what area to put the glue.
Roll the paper back into a cone shape, aligning the top edge and press the glue down. Add more glue, if needed.
Grab the left over piece of paper and cut a 12×3 inch strip for the handle. Fold the strip in half lengthwise and glue.
Stick a glue dot on each end of the handle.
(you can also staple the handle on)
Press the glue dot handle to the paper cone. As the cone finally came together, my niece said, “Oh, it’s like a purse!”
Now fill with treats. I suggested to my niece that we add some flowers to the cone but she informed me that there wasn’t enough room!
