This is so awesome-- thank you for the tutorial. I really want to try to do this. They're beautiful and you'd never imagine they were tape!

Thanks for all the great comments! I do have one suggestion- if you decide to try it yourself, use a thicker gauge wire- the flower heads are heavy!

I must say your roses are prettier than mine!  The problem I usually have with my duct tape roses is that after a while they tend to fall apart...have you had that problem as well?  The only way I've figured out to solve it is to wire the whole thing together, like I did here:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=112780.msg1076811#msg1076811

These are so rad but I can't figure out how to make them look like flowers.  Mine end up looking like a massive silver funnel.  Maybe I'm making the tape too long?  AGH!!

Perhaps the tape is too long? Otherwise, try arranging the petals so they are spread evenly across the rose, not vertically up. Kinda hard to explain- it takes a lot of playing around with to get right. Anyone else have any suggestions?

Oh I tried this for the first time! The tuutorial was actually something easy I could understand. Smiley I didn't do the wire. Since it was a test I just wrapped it around theeraser on my pencil. Now I need to go out to buy different colors and sit down to make a bouquet of flowers. Thanks for the tutorial! I'm sure I'm not the last to say that though lol. The picture is as follows...

whatzudoin: I love the blue! Arent blue roses symbolic of friendship? Use heavy wire if you decide to go that way. Seth (the bf) used 24 gauge floral wire- which made the roses kinda floppy.
