I've looked at the tutes on this site.... but they confused me a little. Can anyone give me some simple directions, or is it really just complicated to make them? Anyway, I'd love to make a bouquet for my lovey this Valentine's, but I don't know how!! Any help would be awesome!

They're not all that hard. First you cut a square or rectangle of duct tape. Hold it sticky side facing you, and fold one corner inward. For the purposes of explaining let's say you fold the upper right corner. You'll only want to fold it about halfway toward the left side, so there is equal room for the other side of the petal. Also, make sure there is some sticky space left on the bottom (like in the pictures on most tutes) to stick the petal to the rest of the flower (or to roll the petal up for the middle). I assume that's the part that was confusing you, making the initial shape, as it seems to be left out in the tutorials I have seen. I hope this helped... I can try to explain more if you're still confused?

You've helped a lot, thanks. Yeah, that initial part was what was confusing me. I didn't really know how to begin. So, now I can take a look at those tutes again and know what the heck I'm doing. Thanks again. Smiley
