There are many sizes of 5 petal cutters. The cone shape size will depend on which size cutter you are using.

My JEM cutters tell you right on them how tall to make the cone.

I just tried using ball shaped suckers as the rose centres. They worked great and I didn't have to add any wire because they already had the stick. If you are making your own centre I think they are about 3/4 the diameter and height of 1 petal. Jelly beans also work. They come in different sizes.

Generally the cone is as tall as one petal. YOu can purchase styorfoam rose cones. The advantage to the styrofoam cone is that you don't have to wait for them to dry and they are must lighter than a GP cone, so the flower is not so heavy.

If you are using wire with you rgp centres, heat the wire in a flame and stick it into the gp. The centre is ready to use immediately.

If you plan on going with foam centers Rose foam centers are great but can be pricey. I have used the same size foam balls and they work just as well.

You can also use Hershey's Kisses for the center.
