I'd say it was a rose, too. Just without the top edges of the petals curled back like you see on a lot of roses. But I'd definitely do it with a rose cutter, either the 5-petal kind or the one that cuts individual petals.

Looks like a cross between a rose and a gardenia.

You could do the innermost petals with a 5-petal cutter (or with a cutter that cuts individual petals, I'm just partial to the 5-petal one) and do the outside petals with a larger single-petal cutter. I think the main difference between this flower and a more traditional rose is the way the edges of the petals are shaped - more gently waved than curled back. I'd say that that's what makes it look like a cross between a rose and a gardenia, too. Best of luck with this, by the way. It's a very pretty flower.

Yeah, my first thought was gardenia, because the center is down further inside the outer petals, but I agree with everyone else; you could make it with the 5 petal cutter.

Looks like a gardenia, the center seems to be spiral. Here's an image of a real one http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/1301/everblooming-gardenia.php
