You can purchase a set of cookie cutters from any kitchen store, this set of 5 was around $6. hold the cutter at the joint and give a squeeze to make it into a tear drop shape. For roses soften the round edge and make your petals for the flower. For peonies, knick the round edge at a few places, then frill with toothpick and proceed making the flower. For the calla lily, point side up, soften edge, and pull point a little with ball tool, then place on cone to shape the lily. Below are the cutters used and the flowers I made.

List of Materials

Petals are cut with the desired size. For the peony 3 different sizes were used. The first 3 cut with the smallest cutter.

Each petal is knicked at 3 or 4 places , doesn't have to be even, some can have deeper v's.

Thin on a foam pad with a toothpick, placing your index fingure on the t/pick in the middle and rolling it back and forth. This ruffles the petal at different points.

Attach the small petals closely onto a gumpaste ball which has been dried with a wire through it OR you can use a styrofoam ball with a wire glued through/into it.

I allowed to dry for 20 mins and then dusted with pink colour. Cut 5 petals in the next size up. ruffle the edges and place in tablespoons to dry for 5 minutes or so before gluing on at the base only. Dust with colour.
