I am looking for a 6 petal round (preferably metal) cutter that is 1 inch or smaller.

I have looked on Jennifer's page, CK, GSA, Sugar C... and all I can find are 5 petal or they are pointed like for a calynix or a daphne.

Very important this has 6 round petals, and it's under 1".

Help!

TFR, Jen

I've never seen a 6 petal one, of course, that doesn't mean one doesn't exist. Is it possible to use a 3 petal one and layer the two to get six? That's what I do with freesia and all my lillies.

It is, but I just took a sugar flower class where I used a 6 petal so I know they exist. I just can't find it!

And yes, for making freesias.

It's not metal, but it's 6 petal and the smallest in the set is 3/4-inch.

That's close, but I don't need the plunger, it needs to be open.

The smallest is 3/4 inch, the next is 1.5 inch.

You don't actually need to use the plunger feature. You can just use it as a cutter without plunging. I do that with quite a few of my plunger cutters.

Can the teacher help you out? If you used the cutter in a class, they should know where to get it. If the cutters listed above aren't what you want, I would make it like a pulled flower, no cutter needed, old school way. That's the way I learned freesias to begin with (but I'm old). You just make a cone, hollow it out and make cuts for the six petals, then thin on the side of your finger.
