To create the Petal Flower you'll use the rounded edge on The cutting Edge ruler. Please follow the basic cutting instructions available here to get yourself comfortable the ruler....

Once you have learned how to use the ruler follow these instruction to make a petal flower. I 'm using 1 1/2" ribbon for this example and cutting the pieces 1 3/4" long.

Make 5 petal using the round edge on the ruler and straight edge on the V cut side. If you make the petal shorter or linger it will change the look of your flower. Try different lengths to find style you like best.

Cut the petals for this flower using the same technique shown for the 5 petal flower, but s shorter length.

The sheer ribbon cuts faster and easier, so this will go much faster.
