I have several ladies who have asked, "How do you know what size to cut for roses"? Well when I started, I didn't know what size to cut, it was trial and error. Recently, I decided to make myself a guide . I made several sizes cut from 1" to 4", in increments of 1/2". Now, I just have to refer to my guide and decide what size I want to use for my projects.Remember when you are inputting a size in your cricut, it usually refers to the height.So when you cut something at 1", it will be 1" tall. This guide will take you about 20 minutes to a half hour to make, but it is well worth your time. I keep it in a zip lock bag, tacked to a wall in my craft room for easy viewing.
