Hiya everyone icon_smile.gif Im looking for a good Poinsettia cutter set so i can make and have my flowers wired ready in time for christmas. I was looking to post this in the UK Baker thread seen as i am from the uk but alas, i couldnt find it ! ive only ever made gumpaste roses before with a 5 petal cutter, and really have no clue about which cutters would be as some are smooth leafs, some are like . . Pointy leafs, so confusing lol! Anyway, if anyone has any advice it would be greatly apreciated icon_smile.gif


I have seen a set of 7 FMM Cutter on ebay, And also on lawsons, these have quite defined leafy shapes, as i said, others on ebay have a really smooth leaf shape. If any of you have and use these, please tell me if they are worth getting


Thank you ! x

You can order them from Jennifer Dontz. She has good prices and makes lovely flowers. I made the Poinsettia in one of her classes that you can see in my pictures with her cutters and direction of course. She is really good. Just type in jenniferdontz.com and you are there.
Forgot to add that she is Jennifer MI on here.

I used the one she recommended for this flower. I used hers when I made the flower so I dont know the exact one but she will help you with which veiners go with which cutters and so on. You can contact her via her website. She is very helpful. Thanks for your comments on my flowers.
