- Pen
Crafting Time: 20 minutes

Step 1

Take your pen and cover it in tape (lengthwise works the best). This step is completed best if you roll the pen across the tape, sticky-side up.

Step 2

To make your petals, cut several strips of 2-inch long duct tape squares.

Step 3

Fold one edge over itself sticky side up, leaving some stickiness exposed on the side and bottom.

Step 4

Take the other edge and fold it over, leaving only stickiness on the bottom of the strip.

Step 5

Wrap the petal tightly around the top of the stem.

Step 6

Repeating steps 2-5 with additional strips of duct tape, wrapping the petals around the top. Continue until you've reached the desired size.

Step 7

For the leaves under the base of the rose, repeat steps 2 - 4 with the same color that you used for the stem. Wrap these pieces around the stem at the base of the flower to cover up the tape edge.
