This is the only reference I could find to a Ferris cutter, and it is used to make a tulip.

Ferris must be the brand name. The cutter is made from tin. It is 5 cm long and at one end it is 1 and 1/4 cm wide and is rounded the other end is shaped like a petal cutter but with only 3 petals this is 1 and 3/4 cm The cutter is taper in at the middle to 1cm and down the middle of the cutter is a 4 cm long piece of tin when used on rolled paste this causes a slit. Hope you can understand this. But I still cannot work out what it is for.

Friendly - from your description it sounds like something you use to make a border...you insert the petals through the slit so they twist the middle bit? And do you connect each end bit to the next/adjacent twisted cut-out? KWIM?
