Step 1: Gather All Materials

Things you will need: - Duck Brand Duct Tape (any other brand works too) - Pen (any color works) - X-Acto Knife (optional, good for clean cuts, scissors also work well)

Step 2: Create the Stem of the Flower

- Take your pen and cover it in tape (lengthwise works the best). This step is completed best if you roll the pen across the tape, sticky-side up. - Also, if you want a colored center, place a 1 inch piece of tape around the top so it flat, this way you will have a better looking flower

Step 3: Create the Petals of the Flower

- To make your petals, cut several strips of 2-inch long duct tape squares.

Step 4: Folding the Petals

- Fold one edge over itself sticky side up, leaving some stickiness exposed on the side and bottom.

Step 5: Folding the Petals, Continued

- Take the other edge and fold it over, leaving only stickiness on the bottom of the strip.

Step 6: Placing the Petals on the Stem

- Wrap the petal tightly around the top of the stem.

Step 7: Adding More Petals

- Repeating Steps 2-5 with additional strips of duct tape, wrapping the petals around the top. Continue until you've reached the desired size.
