Supplies Needed

Choose your weapon duct tape pattern first!

Now it's time to make the petals! Petals are just 2″ pieces of duct tape, folded: Fold the right corner up towards the top of the piece, leaving a little bit of the sticky side exposed. Then take the corner you made, and fold it down to form almost a pyramid shape.

You can make the rose as big as you want, just make sure you stick the tape down firmly each time or it will fall apart.
duck tape flower pen tutorialKeep the petals close together. Where one point ends, another needs to begin. You can start to spread them out more as the rose gets bigger, but if you spread them too far apart it looks sloppy.
