I have the Retro punch in two other sizes, so when I ordered this one I expected it to be large. Well let me tell ya.....this thing is humongous!!! When I opened the box I was shocked at how BIG this punch was! It's bigger than my craft iron!!! Seriously I could use this as a door stopper!!! LOL
Now that I've used it, I'm really happy with it. The flowers are the perfect size for layering!! If you decide to order this, just be forewarned that this really is EXTRA LARGE!!! It is quickly becoming one of my favorite things!!

Sb.com is the only place I could find the extra large retro flower punch. I do have the other 3 smaller sizes and really wanted the extra large one. I just received it yesterday and have already used it on one of my pages. I just love it. It works so easy and cuts great thru patterned paper and card stock. I can turn it upside down to see the placement of the paper that I'm punching out.

I agree...this is HUMONGOUS...but the flower size is perfect. This is perfect if you love flowers on your layouts, would like to make your own flowers, like to coordinate your flowers with the papers you are using.... the flowers you make with punch are easy to curl to add dimension...You will use this a lot! and you will love it!

This punch is huge! Alot bigger than in looks in the picture. I have already gotten a ton of use out of it and I know will get a ton more. Well worth the money - then you can create a flower in any pattern or color you want instead of having to buy them all separately.

I ordered this flower punch for my daughter for Christmas. I was a little surprised by how big the flower really is! But I love it...in fact I punched a BUNCH of flowers out before I sent it to my daughter ! I'm sure she'll love it too!
Love this flower punch!!! I don't know how I lived without it. I love flowers as embellishments and use to always have to set up the cricut to get nice ones. Not any more. I will use this to excess!!!

This is a nice quality punch but it is much larger than I expected. I have the medium retro punch which I love love love. I like to make roses with the retro flower punches but the petals from this punch are hard to manipulate, maybe with practice I will find a way. I will certainly find a way to use it. All in all, it is huge and the quality is good.
For those without a cutting machine, punches are the next best thing! Cover one of these in stickles and layer behind a Prima and you have the prettiest blingy flowers ever! Cut out several and glue them together to add an inexpensive flower that contains depth. Paint them, stickle them, use patterned papers, the possibilities are endless!
