To start you will need to gather your supplies. You will need:
• 2 Colors of Duct Tape (1 will work but 2 looks better)
• A pen or pencil (make sure it is just a solid cylinder with no curves)
•A Cutting-mat or Cutting Board
• A Ruler
• A Knife of some sort

Step 2: Starting The Flower

Next rip/cut off a piece of duct tape off that is 1 ½ - 2 inches long. Wrap the piece of tape around the pen leaving a quarter inch sticking off the end you DON’T write with. Next pinch the end of the duct tape together forming a ridge of duct tape on the end of the pen.

Step 3: Preparing the Tape

Start ripping off five pieces of tape 6 to 7 inches long and laying them on the cutting board.  Be sure to alternate colors of duct tape so you have an equal amount of each color. If you want to make a pattern to your flower other than the one in this instructable now is the time to do it, so choose the colors of tape you will want to use.
