Step 1: What You'll Need

Green duct tape Blue (or whatever color you want the petals to be) An exacto knife A straw

Step 2: Step 1

Cut about 20 2-inch strips of blue tape

Step 3: Step 2

Take one of your 2-inch strips and fold the bottom right corner inwards so that there is about a quarter inch of the sticky tape on top and on the side. The sticky side of the tape should form an L. Now your going to fold the bottom left corner so that there is a pyramid shape of the smooth side of the tape. Repeat with the remaining strips.

Step 4: Making the Flower

Put the bottom (sticky) of the "pyramid" onto the straw and wrap it A.T.A.P (as tightly as possible) around the top of the straw. Then wrap another petal around that one and repeat with the remaining petals.

Step 5: Making the Stem

Now cut a strip of green tape as long as the rest of the straw. Wrap the piece of green tape around the straw and....tada! You have a flower! Thank you for reading! Please leave a comment if you have any questions. Thanks :)
