MelissaMay, I love Nicholas Lodge's instructions for gum paste flowers. A lot of times, I read his directions, try them, and then adapt them to what works for me. As you play with the flowers, you'll see what you like and dislike. I am also working short on cash (I'm a full-time graduate student) so I make a lot of my own cutters, where possible. I just posted a tutorial on the gum paste calla lily on the blog and there's tulips from a few months ago (Feb or March 2009, I think). I'm working on tutorials for the rest of the flowers so check back in the future.
