Junk Flowers Click any picture to view a slide show with commentary. A flower made from slices of toilet paper tubes. You can see here where I experimented with edging the petals with markers. I found that it doesn’t make much difference either way. I made this out of soda can tabs and leather cord. This picture is shitty because I took it with my iPhone (the camera is fine, I just haven’t gotten the hang of it). Same flower, different angle. This technique is trickier than it looks. This technique is actually meant for making ribbon roses, but I used a strip cut from a paper bag. Quick and easy. A closer look. There are so many things you can do with aluminum cans! This flower, for example. I am so in love with inner tubes as a craft material. This was my first (successful) attempt of this flower. I made this while perfecting the technique. Four petals are much easier to arrange than five. I love this button against the black rubber.
