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 icon_biggrin.gif

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. icon_smile.gif 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.

Hi

I use the FMM 5 petal rose cutter and found it really good, much easier than individual petal cutters.

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.
