Remember when I showed you the Duct tape organizer I made for the pens on my desk? Well, today I will be sharing the tutorial to make those flowers. The cool thing about them is that you can clean them very easily unlike fabric flowers I used to decorate, these ones can be dusted without any problems and also washed in case something spills. I shared in my last post that I was going to work on some easy projects for those just starting and this is one of them!
1- Gather your materials:
2- Unroll a piece of duct tape, and place it facing each other. You will need pieces of color on both sides. if you want you can make them with different colors. one for the back and one for the front.
3- On your piece of duct tape, cut 5 of each of both sizes for one flower. if you want you can mark them first with a non-permanent marker then wipe off.
4- You will end up with 10 pedals, then cut a round piece for the center of the flower.
5- Fold the pedals at the end of the straight line (Like shown in the template)
6- Fold the back.
7- it should look like this from the front of the petal, repeat with all the others and you are ready to glue.
8- Place a drop in the front fold
9- And then another drop in the back to glue the fold in.
10 – You have all your pieces ready to assemble the flower.
11- First glue the button to the center of your circle.
12- Then start gluing the big petals first.
13- Glue them all the way around the edge of the circle
14- The start with the smaller petals, glue them in between the big ones and making sure your close to the center, touching the button.
15- and the flower is done! now we need a piece to attach it.
16- Grab a paper clip and place a piece of tape in between.
17- Tape that to the back of your flower and it's ready!
