Step2: Next is to make the petals of the flower. For making a petal, 2″ pieces of duct tape is required. Fold the right corner up towards the top of the piece, leaving a little bit of the sticky side exposed. Then take the corner you made, and fold it down to form almost a pyramid shape. There should be an opening towards the top on the side.
Step3: Now start wrapping the petals on the tip of the pen. Begin the next point of the petal where one point ends.
Step4: Make sure that the petals are kept close to each other while wrapping. The petals should be kept even or else it would look sloppy.
For making small roses, you will need about 25 petals. But to make a bigger rose you will require about 50 petals.
