There are so many ways to make a flower from a plastic bottle. I have seen a hundred versions, but I don't think I've seen this. It requires this specific bottle (or its twin):
Why? Because it seems to be made of several layers, which can be peeled apart. (Maybe there are lots of bottles that do the same thing, this is the one I have found so far.)

Peel until the whole inner circle is lifted. And you end up with this!
A cool crystalline flower, all in one piece.
Now it is ready to embellish. The sky is the limit...I mostly experimented with beads, but all you clever peeps will surely come up with many ideas of your own.
Fun, fun, fun! I plan to use them for lots of things; I'll show you one in my next post. Here's a little peek:
