Question please help im clueless

I am wanting to get some kind of die cutting machine i know there are sizzix and cricut and probably tons more but i have no idea where to even begin. i am just looking to be able to cut circles out of felt for the backs of my flowers etc and possible get some dies to make some felt flowers is there a good starter type one . also i thought about getting a sizzix big shot (or whatever that is) but cant figure out do they come with everything you need to use them other then the dies or do you need to buy additional accessories as well as the dies to use them. I am so clueless in this area any advice would be greatly appreciated!

You might think about the cuttlebug as well.... I don't know if it's any cheaper than the big shot or big kick but it cuts felt as well. Check ebay...there's tons of all three machines on there.

I think the cuddle bug is sizzix but I could be wrong

Oh oh oh, don't know if it's too late or out of the budget, but look at a Silhouette. This seems like the Grand Prix of cutters, except you don't need to buy boxes of dies, just download patterns online for 99 cents each. You can go to their site and look at their library of patterns easy enough. Not sure if I'll ever have the use for one, but this is definitely on my drool list.
