You can use either circle or heart shaped cutters.
So long as you have a smaller and a larger cutter you are doing good.
I often determine the size of my petal by the thickness of my paste..
So say I only had one cutter. So I'd cut out one set of inner petals the correct thickness. Then roll the gum paste out thicker, cut out the petal then roll it to the correct thickness in so doing make it larger when it thins out.
Works for me.
