I have the smaller board, and I would say if I had to do it again if I was spending the money I'd get the bigger one.
I agree with you 100% if I could do it over, I'd gotten the bigger one hands down... but I have the small one and I am not about to get another one (for now anyways lol)
I have used both methods and they are both good.. but I usually use my celBoard though... I have been even thinking of ways to do a home-made one cause since I have the little one... for bigger leaves or petals it's kinda hard to get it done...
I took to pieces of those wood plaques you buy at Michael's and put them on a bigger one with a gap in the middle... (to make the big petals) and it worked okay... but I'm still pouting for not getting the bigger celBoard..
If you really enjoy making flowers... I really recommend you get it... it's worth it...
