Paper Tape Roses

The tape was sitting on the table, so I picked up a piece and just started playing and this is what came out of my play time. I ended up making four sets of three. I have never seen anyone make these, so I did a search for paper tape roses. I found roses made of crepe paper and duck tape, but no paper tape. I am sure it has been done. I made them like you would ribbon roses, but better than ribbon because it sticks to itself, so it keeps it's shape. I then ended up giving them a wash of color. I needed this color for a project I am working on or I would have tried rolling them in glitter.

Brilliant Kim! Those look amazing. It is so neat when one is just 'playing' around and something magical happens like this.

There you go again showing off how talented you are. From coffee paper dolls to paper roses. I sure wish I lived just around the corner from you. I would become your shadow.
