Default really cute duct tape heart or flower...

These are really cute!! I can figure out how to make the individual petals (I think) but have no idea how its put together. (or maybe I'm making them totally wrong for this style) Any ideas? The heart shape ones are way cute too!

These are a little different as far as the petals, but still would love to know how to make these too!! So cute!!

That second shop does have a tut for sale for both the flower and the heart. It's a little pricey but if you really wanted to know you could buy it.

I agree that they are darling!

I used a free tut for the flower........It's pretty much the same flower used on pens. I'll see if I can find it later.....Duct tape flower pens sell pretty well for me. I don't make a ton though because I really HATE cutting the littler pieces and folding them. Really time consuming.

I'd love to look at the free tut you have if you can find it! Thx!!! I thought they might be really time consuming... But I have a rotary cutter and ruler thingy that my mom gave me (she quilts and has a stash of that kind of stuff, lol) At least it will help with the cutting part.

Check this out: http://sharpieobsessed.deviantart.co...pies-193739450 What a clever idea!! I may have to pick some up when they go on sale at Staples again. I bet it would be cool to make coordinating sets with regular markers or even different colored regular pens too! And an "upcycled" can or something covered in duct tape to be the holder. Maybe selling the whole set like that would make it more worth the time. (I really have no idea though, I don't sell anything, I just love to learn how to make things and am always looking for cool and unique gift ideas. )

I've been trying to find the new pastel duct tape locally but without much luck. Tapebrothers .com has good prices, especially the more you buy, but their shipping is a little high. Altho, with gas prices these days, it may be worth it to do that instead of driving around different places! :-/

Thanks for the link. I am sure my daughters would have a blast making these..... now, if I can only find cheaper duct tape.
speaking of duct tape, when my son was 15 he had a bone disease and had to have several surgeries. He was on crutches for 2 1/2 years and became very bored with the plain silver coloring.....he duct taped his crutches in camo colors. He had mny compliments on those things.

Try Tractor Supply if you have one around you. It is usually 3.99

I have used my 40% off coupon for duct tape (seems like the "duck" brand has the most colors!) at Michael's and Hobby Lobby. It ends up being about $3/roll.

These flowers look like a lot of fun. Think I will use this during summer break for a quiet craft to keep my girls busy while my little one naps!

Just a heads up to everyone....I have noticed with the pattern duct tape that it doesn't hold quite as well as the plain/colored duct tape. When I do my final row on the bottom of the flower I add a few drops of hot glue to secure it in place......
