To start your flower, first you must use the pliers (or scissors) to cut the wire in half.





Next use the scissors (or you're hand) to cut the duct tape into a 2X2 inch square.

Step 3: Step 3: The First Petal Part 2

Next you will fold the square of duct tape over like in the picture below.





Then you will fold it over again so it is like a little triangle on top.

Now the first petal can be hooked on.

First get the wire and stick it onto the duct tape like so.

Then flip the edge over so it won't come loose.

Now you just twist it around and around and stick it on so it looks like a a tube with a hole.


WARNING! If you don't look at the last picture you may have it wrong!!!

All you have to do now is do the steps over and over...sorta.

Just a note to the haters.

Please be nice. Many of these folks have put their time and effort into these 'ables and without pay or compensation.

As such, I appreciate it, all.

It's ALL been done before. Yeah, we know.

But, who cares??

Keep it fun. =>D
Just letting you know, "simplifyed" is spelled simplified.

wilcurt (author)  tomman4 years ago
wow. nice.
these are cool, my brother was telling me that every prisoner in the state pens would make these to send to their moms on mother's day. I do remember him sending one home. I'm working on a few projects that my brother is helping me out with using the creative skills he picked up while incarcerated. It will be themed as "art behind bars" sort of thing. Any way I really like the ones you made alot.

Triple Color...Nice.
I don't think it is as simple as you make it seem no offense.
wilcurt (author)  vampireZOMBIE5 years ago
it took me a while but u see the difference. It is in the way you fold the petals, am i right?
wilcurt (author)  Father Christmas5 years ago
Yes, You're Correct. Thank You!
actually, thank you. i never thought of that. i got a hybrid between this and the traditional style by alternating petals between that and your modification. turned out pretty spiffy, if i say so myself.
wilcurt (author) 5 years ago
Actually you can tell this is a bit different because I made this up. It's quite different if you try it.
No, it is the same with lower quality pictures, and text...
bumpus5 years ago
This is pretty much the same, if not lower in quality, as this instructable is.
Try searching through what has already been made, before publishing.
