you need:
scissors
glue
a crochet hook
plastic ring ( one for every flower - from bottles)
...and of course: an old audio tape
and some paperboard for the greeting card

what to do:
make a look with the tape
then make as many simple crochet stitches as necessary to fill the ring all around

Step 2: Flower 2

when you've covered the ring then make petals:

chain 4
fix with a simple crochet in the ring,
make as many petals as necessary to go around
cut the tape and pull

i have tried to crochet with tape so many times and it is much more difficult that i thought it would be. Do you have any tips? I could really use them.
Cool!

no problem for me... quite a big hook, and don't keep the tape too tightly (do you say so??) .. crochet loosely!
