Intro: Duct Tape Flower

In this Instructable, we'll be showing you how  to make a modular  duct tape flower. Depending on how large you want it and how much work you're will put in to it, it can be anything from 5 to 100, which is what's in the picture, to even 1,000 petals!

Step 1: Making the Stem

Take a piece of duct tape the color you want the stem to be, then roll it up or mold it around a pipe cleaner.

Step 2: Making the Petals

First, take a square of tape. (Pic 1)
Fold it diagonally, but not all the way. (Pic 2)
Take one corner and fold it onto the other side, making a dome-like shape with one sticky band at the base. (Pic 3)
Make as many of those as you want petals on your flower.

Step 3: Attaching the Petal to the Stem

First, take the petal and position the stem in the center. (Pic 1)
Then, wrap one end around it, creating a fold. (Pic 2)
Wrap the other end around, and you've attached a petal. (Pic 3) Do that as many times as you like, putting them all around the stem in a kind of imperfect circle, or other design.(pic 4 and 5)

Step 4: Done!

Congratulations! You know all you need to to make your very own duct tape flower!
Now I'm going to give you some examples!
