Duct Tape Bouquet by DuckTapeBandit Duct Tape Bouquet by DuckTapeBandit
First off these flowers are my own design, DO NOT steal them.

I was asked to make these flowers for the reception area of my work, Duck brand duct tape in Avon, Ohio. They took over 25 hours to complete and probably 3-4 rolls of green tape and about a roll or two of every other colour pictured. I really wish I could keep this bouquet it looks very nice in various places in my house.

Wow, how in the world did you get the calla lilies to bend and stay like that? I was going to make a dress for the prom scholarship and couldn't get the tape to do anything. :/

I love all the colors you used to make this. The two shades of green and the bursts color here and there of purple, yellow, white, and bits of orange.

If it weren't for how close the picture was taken and the fact that the tape is shiny, I would think it was actually real flowers! Great job on it!
