I needed something cool to fill a vase for a friend and happened to decide to make them out purely of duct tape! They're actually very sturdy and guys and girls alike like them- i'm planning on using them for easy Christmas for classmates this year. (I'm sure there are other tutorials on how to do this, but this is how i did mine...)

((Click on any picture to see it bigger))

First of all, the finished product (featured in a record bowl):



All you need for this project is duct tape and scissors. (I perfer to use silver, but you can get many different colors in craft and hardware stores)

Step 1: Petals
To make the first petal, get a piece of duct tape about this long:
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/8123/20rp.th.jpg

Fold under the lower right side:

Fold under the top right corner:
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/3903/47ol.th.jpg

Repeat for the other side of the petal:

Next, fold down the top:

Finally, fold in the bottom corners:

Tada! Your first petal. Stick it on something (preferably metal or something that wont cause the duct tape to lose any stickiness. My sister's fingers also worked quite well  Cheesy)

Step 2: Blossom

When you have 5 of these petals:

Stick them together in a nice flower shape. I found my favorite flowers were the ones that i stuck together so it makes a slight cup-shape.
 http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/1551/94pl.th.jpg

Make 3 more petals of roughly the same size as the first 5 and stick them on your flower shape.

Make 3 more smaller petals and stick them on:

Next, get a piece of tape about this long:
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/1516/124fx.th.jpg

And cut it in half to get two roughly square pieces:
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/5836/133nd.th.jpg

Fold both pieces into petals and stick them on your flower.
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/176/149eu.th.jpg

Yay! Now turn your blossom over, it should look like this:
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/7631/154qm.th.jpg

Get a piece of tape about this long (longer than any of the pieces you used to make the petals, but not so long that it's longer than your flower!)
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/3497/164hp.th.jpg

Fold down the top corners:
http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/116/1558qh.th.jpg

Then stick it to the back of a petal: Repeat until whole back is covered.

Step 3: Stem
Get a piece as long as the desired length of your stem and roll it into a loose  tube:
http://img251.imageshack.us/my.php?image=176yp.jpg

Crinkle it randomly to close up the space inside the tube:

Cut one end of your stem on a diagonal to give it a nice finished look:

Step 4: Putting It All Together
Get a piece about this big:
http://img182.imageshack.us/my.php?image=206py.jpg

Fold in the bottom sides:
http://img182.imageshack.us/my.php?image=218jm.jpg

Wrap it around the stem (it should only reach 1/3rd to 1/2 of the way around)
http://img182.imageshack.us/my.php?image=222ew.jpg

Fold the top sides in, then in again (and a 3rd time, if needed)
http://img182.imageshack.us/my.php?image=238aj.jpg

Bend the whole piece you just folded back:

Make two more:

Firmly stick it to the bottom of the blossom:

Tada! A duct tape rose!  Grin

If you have any questions, please ask, and if you make a rose, please post it- I'd love to see!

I just made one with clear tape. ^_^ It came out pretty neat, but I want some duct tape now.
Our camera is still packed so I can't post any pics. =/
