I've been looking EVERYWHERE for the Sizzix Bigz 3-D Flower die and was FINALLY able to get my hands on one thanks to scrapbook.com. <3 <3 It was out of stock for the longest time! Anyway, love this die!! I use the die to make custom handmade roses out of canvas, felt, organza, tulle, mulberry paper, grungeboard, and card stock.
I love this die! I use it in my Cuttlebug. Since the die is BIG, in the Cuttlebug you would use die, cardstock and 2 'B' plates. The Sizzix Bigz Die takes the place of the 'A' plate. There are good instructions that come with the die on how to make the flower after it is cut. I also misted it with a 'little' water and then turned down the tops of the pedals. This made the flower look more realistic.

I absolutely love this die.....it's so easy to make this beautiful flowers to add to either greeting cards or scrapbook pages. I have already recommended this product to several of my stamping/scrapbooking friends.
Use some scrap paper to practise a bit, as it can look daunting at first. I used a long forked tweezer to do the winding with and that works very well. Excellent product.
I was kicking myself in the rear for not getting this die sooner. When I decided I had to have it I couldn't find it. I was excited to get the notice that scrapbook.com had it in stock. I ordered it right away! It arrived quickly and I'm now a happy scrapper!
So much better than buying the pre-cut ones. Before rolling, use a stylus and bend back the curves to make it look more like a rose or shade with ink to give dept. Very pretty and real looking.
A little tricky to master but once you do these turn out great. I find that using felt to make these works the best.
This die is outstanding. I used it yesterday with such wonderful results. I needed to decorate a bride's poster and we all had such a good time doing it. The more times I rolled the strip, the better the results. Practice does make wonderful flowers.
I really love this die, works well with most paper. For sure the best thing to cut with it is felt, makes cute blooms. Dont know how I lived without it!l
Glad Sizzix came out with something special like these paper roses. How awesome. Cricut is my favorite but they don't have these roses, which keeps me from giving away my BigKick machines,
Kudos to Sizzix
