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.

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.
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.
