Default how to cut flowers from felt for clippies?

I'm trying ot make some felt hair clips but I'm having tons of trouble cutting out symetrical flowers! how do people do it? Etsy :: tinysweets :: Sweet Tiny Fuchsia Pink Flower - Wool Felt Hair Clip

The shapes look so perfect....I tried using a paper punch and it didn't punch through....any ideas?

They use a die cutter (and flower shaped dies). I'm actually looking into buying one as soon as I get paid in a week! There's lots of different brands, in my opinion, (based only on research, no actual use) Sizzix is the best, it accepts dies made specifically for other machines, like Cuttlebug. But all seem really good. Just don't buy the Cricut if you're planing to cut felt, as the Cricut is meant only for paper/vellum/etc.!

Sizzix--I've got the Big Kick (I think it's called)....The dies that are marked "Originals" will cut through felt, cardstock, tin...you name it. They're great! you don't want to use the lightweight dies (like sizzlets etc)
Good luck with everything!

Okay. You all have made me want one of these miracle machines!!!

Does it cut ribbon? Like if you used the wider stuff, could you cut out ribbon flowers? What do these machines usually sell for?

Geez. I'll never retire at this rate! But I could have some fabulous crafty stuff
