It's awesome. It seriously takes 2 seconds to cut a circle. I got mine at Michael's - it was $19.99 originally and I used a 40% coupon.
Hmmm.. Might have to check that out if I actually like making these, lol.

I'm using this tut for them http://minisweethearts.blogspot.com/...-tutorial.html
and have some more questions...

1- How do you "close" the circle? Do you sew back thru them, or just tie a knot?

2- How do you keep your petals open?

I "closed" mine by tying a knot in between the first and the last flower and now they looked squished together. And the petals are not staying open.

Any help would be great!
