I have become somewhat obsessed with making my own paper flowers for cards and home décor. I just recently bought this die set and was very pleased with my first effort. I cut the petals from a pale rose paper, sponged the edges on both sides with a slightly darker ink, as well as sponging and shading the olive green leaves. With the exception of not cutting quite enough middle sized petals, the results were remarkable. My first rose looks like the real thing sitting on my craft table. This makes a good size rose suitable for a card, scrapbook page, or home décor. I next want to cut some fabric and put one on my sunhat!
