Hi everyone,
Just wondering if there are any members on here that sell felt shapes/circles to use for backing and also to make folded flowers. If not is there anywhere you can recommend me to purchase them from.
Thanks!

I know this is a pretty old thread...but thought I respond anyway. I'm thinking about getting myself a sizzix big shot to make my own felt circles and flowers. I hate cutting my own and really don't want to pay for them and shipping! Got a Birthday coming up in August..think I'll talk to hubby!

I got mine on special at Lincraft for $99.00, about a year ago. If you wait they may go on sale again.

Otherwise if you are going to the Craft & Quilt Fair in your state, alot of the places have them on special there also.

Thanks Rosie..will keep that in mind. My local Lincraft sucks though...I think they just get in all the scraps from other stores that didn't sell. There's another store a few towns away..might wait til I get my next discount coupon and head over there. I actually live in a town with the biggest scrapbooking store Aus wide..but they don't stock them!

Yay..went to next town to their Lincraft store in the hope of picking up a Big shot. Had it at the counter when the girl at the register asked, "You know it's $159 right?" "Yep" I replied..."I'll still take it, as long as it's not going to be on sale in the next few days"...well..so glad I said that last bit! That's when she told me it would be $40 cheaper on Monday! Looks like I'll be going back over the long weekend!!

Glad you got it at the discounted price.

You can get some good dies from EBAY. You can use a few of the other brand dies as well. I use Sizzix, but also have Spellbinders and Cuttlebug. The only issue with the other brands, is they don't cut as many layers as the sizzix. With the sizzix I can cut about 4-6 layers of felt, with the others, 1 -2.
