Cookie Cutters…

“Where do you get your cookie cutters?”

I get asked that a lot:)

And here’s the total answer…

First I like to buy local at craft stores and Vicky’s Party Store in Milton,

ALSO…I often reshape cutters to create what I want/need…

like this cheerleader cutter to a pumpkin with a stem and leaf…

First, I draw my shape on paper,

Then I cut the cutter with metal clippers,

 Lastly the hard part, I use needle-nose pliers to bend and shape the very stubborn metal strip,

all the while constantly comparing my evolving new cutter to my drawing.

Good luck…

IN ADDITION, I sometimes make a template from cardstock…

and with a very sharp knife I hand-cut each cookie…

like I did with 30 Kitchen Aid Mixer cookies recently…

notice there’s a cut-out part in the interior of the cookie;)

btw… I found this cutter online,

but I didn’t want to spend $30 + shipping.

AND sometimes I create a cookie by combining parts of cutters…

like with this bib cookie…

It’s a simple flower cookie with the “neck” cut out with part of another cutter…

Lastly, sometimes I order cutters online…

My very favorite on line store is

Whisked Away Cutters,

Here’s a cookie I did from her cutter, The Michelle Plaque.

Tracy is a cookie artist who transitioned into a cookie cutter designer…

She uses a 3-D printer to create her designs,

as well as designs by other cookie artists…

She sells in her Etsy shop…

but debuts her designs, creative ideas, and the ideas of others on her FB page…
