I got a Cricut Expression as a Christmas present from my Mother-in-Law. I haven't used it yet, but I was planning to use it for bow holders, too (vinyl cutouts). I haven't used it, yet, but I'm excited to start experimenting with it. I love my Sizzix Big Shot for cutting felt and fabric! You should get one

I have a sizzix bigkick (it's the same as the bigshot but mine's blue). I use it to cut all kinds of things. If you want to go the manual way I'd suggest getting it and using a michael's coupon; that's what my inlaws did for my christmas present. If you want to make flowers that are the same shape but different sizes, get some spellbinders dies. I just got their daisy patch and posy patch ones (the links are from my fav canadian store to purchase from ~ I do mostly cardmaking). They work really well with felt and can be used with any of the manual die cut machines. hth

Thanks for the links - I just purchased those 2 dies! Hopefully they won't take too long to get from Canada to the US

I make Cheer bows, so I need something that cuts fabric for sure. I want them all!

I use the Sizzix BigKick, cuts fabric easily, no snags or anything. However, it can be occasionally difficult to find the die(s) that you need for cheer bows.
