I haven't had the best luck making roses from individual petal cutters. I saw a YouTube video demonstration of rose-making with the 5-petal cutter, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've seen several brands, some in sets, others sold individually in various sizes. Any thoughts on the best cutter purchase? TIA
wilton pink rose cutter set is nice to start with. they are easy to make. fmm brand are good ones.. and the jem brand makes a great rose cutter. all in one cutter. i love them all. hth the bigger the rose. the bigger the center and the bigger the petal cutters.
The Wilton pink rose cutters were a waste of money for me...it's not a 5 petal cutter if I have to cut between each petal. Maybe they've changed it since I bought mine though. The ones I prefer are Jem cutters, in a variety of sizes. The more sizes you have, the more realistic you can make your roses, since the outer petals are usually larger than the inner petals. I have 60mm, 80mm and 110 mm...wish I had more but at $6 each I add to my collection very slowly.
Thanks for the input. I was leaning toward the JEM cutters, but since they are a bit pricey, didn't want to buy something I'd end up not using.
I use the FMM 5 petal rose cutter and found it really good, much easier than individual petal cutters.
I use the F M M Rose Cutter and I think it's great.
Mine are either fmm or pme, which ever are the cream colored plastic. I have like 5 different sizes of them.
I have the 60, 80, 90 & 100mm JEM cutters and love them. I have used the Wilton - once - wasn't happy with having to cut each petal to separate them. Before I invested in the JEM cutters, I just used circle cutters to make each petal individually. There is a thread on here from a few months ago where Tonedna helps out with how to use the JEM cutters. I'll see if I can find a link for you.
Thanks again, all. Special thanks to you FullHouse for the Tonedna thread
I use the JEM-love 'em!
Happy to help. Gotta LOVE Edna!!!!
I use the JEM 5 petal cutters too.
