Every year, on February 14th, loved ones take the day to exchange gifts and cards filled with terms of endearment. Billions of dollars are spent on items such as roses,
candy, jewelry and teddy bears.http://www.yumasun.com/opinion/chocol... duct tape rose or even a bouquet of duct tape roses can accompany gifts such as these to add a homemade touch.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Only a few supplies are needed to create a duct tape rose for Valentine's Day.  Eva Sowinski recommends using red duct tape for the petals of the rose, but other colors can be used in its place.  Each rose petal will require about 3 inches of tape. Purchase the following items to begin your project:

* Green duct tape
* Red duct tape
* Straw
* Scissors

Step 2: Create the Petals

Wrap the straw completely, from the top to the bottom, with green duct tape. Trim any excess tape that may be hanging off of the edges. Cut two to three inches of red tape, then fold the corner down to form a triangle, leaving a small amount of exposed tape on the side. Fold the opposite side of the tape—with the sticky portion—down which will create a new triangle shape. The tape should now have a triangle at the top and a square at the bottom. Wrap the square portion of the red tape around the top of the green straw. Repeat the step 21 times, alternating the placement of the petals around the straw.

Step 3: Create the Bud

Create the bud portion of the flower by repeating the steps used to create the petals but rather than using red tape, green tape is required. Create the bud then wrap it at the bottom of the rose petals. Repeat the process three times. Look over the flower stem and make any additional wraps with green tape in sections that may be coming apart. To add a leaf, use the same process used to create the petals and bud but place the leaf in the middle section of the stem.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sceBhG...
