Default Best tools for homemade Prima-style flowers?

Does anyone make homemade Prima-style flowers? Are there specific dies, or punches or papers that are good for these?

I love this simple tutorial using a SU punch:



I realize there are lots of different styles but I'm hoping to make something that's either like their tightly wound small-medium tea rose style like the tutorial, or fluttery or even floppy, rather than a typical flat 2-D die-cut paper flower.

This one in particular is really well presented:

I think that Heartfelt Creations makes the best flowers around. I follow their instructions and use their tools. Google them and look around their site. Emma Lou has made lots of videos to watch.

They do have beautiful floral stamps and dies, and a new tool kit for shaping flowers! Love those girls.

There's a rolled flowers tutorial in Resources: Rolled Flowers Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers
A friend taught me to use something like a pointed-nose pliers for the start of the rolling process; I found that a great help.

That looks like a great kit - do the tweezers close really tight?

Yes, Dina, they are great. And I love the fact that you have the embossing tool (with five different sizes), a piercing tool and craft knife all in one.

The best card stock I found for making flowers is Michael's Recollections brand 65# card stock. A few times a year they have it on sale for $2 for a pack of 50 sheets . I think it is normally $3.99 a pack.
