Ok here are some of the flowers I made today. They are about 2 1/2 inches long so perfect size for clippies in my opinion but they dont need to be stacked if you wanted to go with the smaller size flower which is about 1 1/2 inches. I may play with the smaller ones on clips too and see what I like best but I hope these will be a big hit at shows!!

Michael's has the machines 50% this week? Are the dies half off too? I haven't gotten today's ads yet so I can't look. I like those flowers! I'll have to get that die. Thanks for sharing the #! Its been snowing here all day too.

Has anyone tried them?
I have the die you are looking for. It's a special edition die cut from spellbinders. It cuts through stiffish cotton fabric, like just laundered and ironed regular fabric. These don't cut very well through felt that I bought at michael's, they are just not deep enough. I use it for paper and have experimented with it and felt was a no go. hth

Oh I am glad you mentioned that, cause I only want them for cutting felts. Do you use wool blend felt? I have read on this board that some dies only work with wool blend felt.

No they were full price there but they had a 50% off coupon any one item for yesterday only for presidents day. They still have the 40% off one today though. I got lucky and got 2 papers yesterday so I sent DH through to buy my Sizzix for $52 and then I went through with another coupon and got my die for $8. But then I went over to JoAnns and they had dies there 40% off this week plus they have a 10% off your entire purchase coupon including sales items so you can get the dies for 50% there. JoAnns has the BigKick online for $49.99 but its online only. This was my early b-day present so I was looking for the best way to save DH some money.

Maybe a dumb question and I appologize because I am new to this. Can you make birthday banners with the big shot also? Is the machine big enough to make those big circles? Just wondering because I want one and it would be nice to make a banner as well for my son's birthdays. TIA!

How big a banner are you talking about? I have a pennant die cut that is probably 3in maybe, I am not close to it or I would measure. I am not sure what the biggest circle you can make would be? If they make a die it could be the size of the board that you are cutting on! Sorry not much help!
