This instructable will teach you how to make a one sided rose bud perfect for adding to a duct tape bouquet or added to a hat (I've done both). All you will need is duct tape of your favorite color and green. I suggest you use a darker shade of green if you can but my walmart only sells lime green.

Note: I first learned to do normal duct tape rose from here - http://www.instructables.com/id/Duct-Tape-Rose/ but as i was making them i realized i could make a onesided bud. So alot of credit goes to Herrozerro for getting me started.

Step 1: Make your stem

First you need to take a four inch long piece of green tape (more or less for what you do with it). Then you start rolling it sideways to make a tube for the stem for the bud. Some people suggest using wire, that's great for bouquets but this is really mainly for a hat

Step 2: Fold

Now rip your duct tape that will be used for the petals into a 2 inch square approx. Then you fold top right corner down 1/3 left. Then take left top corner down 1/3 right. Then place a edge of the petal on your stem.

Step 3: Finishing up

Now you'll want to wrap your petal around the stem. simple. Then repeat step 2 to make more petals. Just make sure they are one side and are alternating as seen in the intro. Add as many or as little as you want.

Step 4: Finishing touches

Now you can secure your rose to a hard brimmed hat. I used two thumbtacks. If you wanted to add this to a larger flower, tape it coming out of the side of a big rose's stem. Don't forget to comment, rate, and all that good stuff.
