I am trying to figure out which rose cutters (FMM) to order. Is the size of the cutter the size of the finished rose? Would a 90mm cutter end up with a 90mm rose. Does a rose that size take up that many more layers to give it a full, natural look.

I can't believe I am so confused by this, but for some reason, getting the right cutter has become a life-or-death decision for me and I'm letting it hold me up...

Thank you in advance!

The size mentioned will give you a large finished rose. Large as in about 4" across.
The more layers you add to any size will give it a full, natural look.

I searched forever to fine a 5-petal rose cutter and now I'm embarrased to say I haven't even tried it yet. LOL . I've been blessed with so many new toys lately I can't find time to play with them all.

The five petal rose cutters are awesome. I start out using that in my roses.

PS - No, the cutter is not the size of the final rose.

So, then, Jen, what size cutter do you use to end up with a general sized rose like a traditional buttercream-on-a-nail rose?
