Washi Tape Flowers

I've seen all sorts of duct tape flowers around Pinterest. I especially love these from How Joyful. I have been wanting to make some washi tape flowers lately, and I followed a similar idea to these duct tape ones.

This is such a simple project. These little flowers make great bows to add to boxes or gift tags.



All you need is a piece of cardboard or card stock, washi tape, scissors, and something for the center. I used buttons and felt.


What you do:

1. Fold over pieces of washi tape, leaving about a quarter of an inch extra at each end.

2. Trim the edges to be rounded or pointed, according to what shape you want your flower to have.

3. Tape the petals to a small card stock circle. For the orange flower, I did 8 petals, and for the yellow flower, I did 6.

4. Add felt, buttons, card stock, etc... to make a fun flower center.



I also made a flower with more, thinner petals. Cut each folded strip of tape in half. I added a simple felt rose (very flat) to the center.
