I was very inspired by all the duct tape rose posts lately, and I thought they were the perfect idea for Valentines Day. The only problem is the glue on duct tape seems to irritate my skin. I went to Tar-zjay (Target) and got a multi pack of colored electrical tape and went nuts. I also noticed that the istructions for the duct tape roses leave you with a very cone shaped result, when real roses have more of a bowl shaped bottem. a simple extra fold is all that was needed to remedy that.


After you make the initial fold, you just overlap the exposed flaps.


I only use 13 "petals" per rose. This is the final result.

I also thought they could use some cute leaves, so....

I folded a piece of green tape over a short length of wire and cut it into a leaf shape and attatched it to the finished rose stem.

These are the finished roses that I gave to my fiance:

I gasped when I saw that first flower, they are truly beautiful.  I love the variation, they look almost real.  Excellent work, I'm going to have to try that out myself, thanks for the tutorial!

haha, this is exactly what I did (use electrical markup tape that is), only that mine turned very waterlily because I maybe I didn't quite understand the original tutorial (but I do understand yours!)
There's a pic of my waterlily-rose posted here...

I love the blue tape! That would make a really cool pen.

oh, dude, those are nice - and it's a realy nice tutorial, too. i'm going to try it out right now, but since it's 1am and target's closed, i'm using gross old grey duct tape. mmm-mmm, that'll make for some charming roses, eh?
