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.

Haha I don't know what it's symbolic of it's just my fav color. So how to you make them seem more open? That's where I had little problem as you can tell.

whatzudoin: try making your squares of tape smaller, and use more petals. Honestly, I didn't make them, so i dont know exactly what his tricks are. But I watched him!

Thanks so much for the awesome tute!

My husband had the evil idea of wrapping my brother's birthday gift in 60 yards of duct tape. We then wrapped it like normal and I added a rose for the top as a "clue". All we have here is the silver kind but I'm happy with how it looks. Smiley

SkyyAngel- I busted out laughing when I read that. What an amazingly evil idea! I will do this to someone this Christmas.

You know what would be better? To put the present in multiple boxes, and wrap a few completely in duct tape. Or maybe something else inbetween.

Oh he was also going to wrap up a layer in 550 cord (parachute cord) that he'd have to unwind or cut through as well as the 100 MPH tape (duct tape but cannot be torn, you have to cut it) in another layer but we couldn't find his stuff. Smiley I at least insisted on using the whole roll of duct tape, DH wasn't going to do that at first, but I insisted that I wanted the package to be "squishy" it had so much tape on it.

As we were wrapping I also came up with the idea of a layer of pennies or washers or something metal that you couldn't cut through and would have to stop and remove a bunch to get through the rest. Couldn't do that though since we have to mail my brother his package and if they decide to x-ray it and can't see through it... well, I'd rather not have the bomb squad involved on my brother's birthday, LOL.
