I saw there is a sticky for making flowers and found a tutorial for making cherry blossoms without a cutter. Are there any cutters for cherry blossoms? Where can I find them and have them rush delivered?

I got my cutter in a kit of flower cutters at Michaels.

I cut them, then use the ball end of the ball tool and make little circular motions on each petal (place the cut out on a thick foam pad when you're doing this) and this helps get the petals to thin and curl a bit. Then I do a little circular pressing on the center and this makes the petals pop up a bit and then I put them in those disposal paper cups shaped like cones so they can dry in a more "natural" pose.

That's just me. I'm sure there are lots of ways out there. Oh, and the kit I bought came with a book on how to make each flower too - FYI.
