Draw a line of glue just underneath the petals, and press your floral tape into place. (Note: My tape wasn't very sticky, so I glued it. If yours is sticky, you can skip the glue.)
||Wrap the entire stem in tape by holding the tape at a diagonal angle to the flower and twirling the stem in your hand. Trim the end of the tape and glue it in place, if necessary.
||Bend each stem slightly to give it lifelike appeal, and place it into a ball of yarn or a glass jar full of buttons-or any vase you like.
