      Duct Tape!

Hi, guys. Today I am going to teach you how to do a duct tape flower. I really like how to do this art project. You guys should really try to make this. I love this art project because it is very simple to make. This is a great thing to make


1. For each flower put a pipe cleaner with green electrical tape, leaving an inch or so at one end uncovered.

2. Fold a 9-inch piece of duct tape in half, sticky sides together. Fold the tape in half again and cut a teardrop shape, keeping the edge intact to create a figure eight. Repeat with2 more strips of tape.

3. Stack the petals and secure them by wrapping the uncovered end of the pipe cleaner around the centers. Fan out the petals and add a small piece of tape at the back to hold them in place.
4. Stick a contrasting color of duct tape onto waxed or parchment paper and cut out a 1/2-inch circle. Peel away the backing and stick the circle in the center of the petals.

5. For a leaf, fold a 6-inch piece of green duct tape in half with a 2 1/2- by 1/2-inch strip of waxed or parchment paper sandwiched between the ends. Cut a leaf shape, then remove the paper from the base of the leaf and wrap it around the pipe cleaner stem
