Instructions:

  1. Prepare the flowers that you need to arrange. Work in groups of 3-4 stems for a more manageable workflow. Hold the stems well together in one hand, in your preferred arrangement.
  2. Place one end of the tape around the back of the stems. 
  3. Hold the tape end with a finger and pull the tape taut. Stretch the tape slightly as you wrap it around the stems.
  4. Note that the tape only sticks to itself, and it only does so if it is stretched. The adhesive is made of wax, and it is only released when the tape is stretched. Make sure to stretch the tape to make it stick to itself, without pulling too much, lest it will break if stretched under too much tension.
  5. Continue wrapping the stems, constantly applying consistend pressure and tension on the tape as you pull it. Overlap it by at least one-half of the tape's width to ensure that it sticks.
  6. Once you are satisfied, tear or cut the tape, pull it taut, applying more tension and secure that end to the last line of tape you applied.
  7. When you add stems, space their heads above or below the original set's heads, and wrap tape around all the stems, including those already taped, so an outer layer of tape holds all the stems together. 
  8. Keep a damp paper towel close. The wax adhesive may stick on your fingers after bundling several stems. Dampening your fingers with water will remove the adhesive.
  9. To smoothen the whole application, you can use your damp thumb to smoothen the tape against itself.
  10. To remove the tape or undo it, simply pull the tape's outer end free and unwrap it. Floral tape may stick strongly to itself but you can easily break the bond by releasing the tension on the tape and pulling it away from itself. If it is difficult to unravel the adhesive, rub a damp cloth to the stubborn area. Water will release the adhesive, which will make unravelling or cutting it easy.
  11. Lastly, you can also use floral tape to hold the stems of flowers together on a vase for a more professional and even longer lasting flower arrangement.
