It's not cutting them out, it's assembling them!! I watched the MFT video and they recommended holding the end of the flower with tweezers and winding it....yikes. Hard! You have to get the right tension.
Then, I watched another video that just wound it around a paintbrush handle. That wasn't too bad, but it ended up a lot smaller than I would have liked. I just have to figure out how to adjust the flower without it unravelling in my fingers!!
