Construction Paper May Day Baskets

When I was a child in Missouri, we celebrated May Day by making construction paper baskets at school, filling them with flowers, hanging them on neighbors' house door knobs, ringing the doorbell and running away.

It was great fun, but I don't remember how to make the baskets. Can anyone help me? I'd like to share this small May Day tradition with my grandbabies.

I just googled "how to make construction paper baskets" ... There were several hits. I hound the one I made as a kid at Storknet.com. Use the google search engine.

Cut two heart shapes. Cut the bottoms into strips and weave the two hearts together. Add a paper strip handle and fill.

You can also cut a square of paper "pinwheel" style, then overlap and glue the corners to form a basket.
