Smile Dimensional Flowers

I'm trying to make flowers with EK Success Dimensional Punches. When I punch a 12" strip to make a flower the flower comes out way to big to use on a card. It's beautiful, but I want something that won't overpower the card. I would appreciate any suggestion. Thanks.

If I'm cutting by hand, I use a big circle and cut a spiral with some decorative edge scissors, then I roll it until I get the size I need. Penny Duncan had some nice templates, but I think those might have all been cutting files that I use that make really nice flowers. You could google her site and see what she has. She also has some tutorials on making flowers.
