These flowers are truly unique and fun. If your'e new to die cutting, just make sure that you have the extender spacer platform which you will need to make these flowers. The extender does NOT come with the Big Shot if purchased by itself. This is a long and narrow die and the extender platform is 2 7/8" x 13". I wish this info were put in parentheses in the product title and I could of purchased this with my order. It is however listed in the description. Being a novice I didnt get that point.
