cookie cutter search - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ok, heres an update! I emailed Family Circle and they gave me contact info. I then decide to call the post office where that PO box was located since it was such dated info. The Post office informed me that it was an expired PO with no forwarding info. After that I continued searching on the net and finally found out the ladies name whom originaly did the cookies and had the cutter offer. She called me to let me know she was no longer sold cutters and the tinsmith whom had done her cutters had passed away. Boy..I fell like a cookie cutter detective. Anyway she told me I could try and find a tinsmith to make them. So..I blew up the pic, traced it on some paper and contacted one of my favorite cookie cutter sites. He said he would love to see the image and would let me know if he would be intrested in making them. I'm waiting to hear back form him. I have noticed some sites sell copper for do it yourself cutters and was wondering if any of you have used the copper kit? I'm also intrested in thry to reshape a cutter..what tools do you use?

I haven't tried the kits but I want to get one from Sweet Celebrations too. I think it comes with a few simple tools but I'm not sure. I recently found a cookie cutter web site that had a "sunbonnet girl" cutter - it's www.thelittlefoxfactory.com but they only take mail orders (no credit cards). I was trying to look for Fox Run Craftsman and this site turned up on the list. HTH

Here's another source for custom cookie cutters... http://www.frankencutters.com/fc/ I needed a fire truck cookie and couldn't find one in the size I needed... I sent Frank a photo copy of a cookie cutter I had and he enlarged it to just the right size. His prices are very reasonable and he does great work!! thumbs_up.gif

I'm a little affraid to ask for a custom made one..some of the sites charge around 60.00 dollars to make one. I hate to be too nosey but was Frankencookie pretty reasonable when they made the firetruck cutter?

Hey Texastwinkie--
I just use my hands and fingers to reshape the thin tin ones. Maybe some needlenose pliers. It's not as hard as it sounds. Give it a try.

TexasTwinkie,

I have used the copper cookie cutter kit and love it. I have purchased replacement strips to make more. I bought mine through foosecookiecutters.com I've even made some for friends. They come with tools that help bend sharp corners and make rounded edges. I have also done the cut out a template thingy using cardstock. Too time consuming for me, unless I'm only making a few of a specific design. I tend to make cookies in batches of at least 30 of a single design and prefer to have a cutter.

Thanks everyone.. I have sent the pattern off to one of the online cookie cutter stores and they are going look at it and see if they think they may want to make it. If they decline I think I may buy one of those do it yourself kits.

I needed a pear shaped cookie cutter once and I had a really hard time finding one (can you believe it? a pear? hard to find?); anyways, I found a website that has tons of cookie cutters and they had just what I needed.
Try it, maybe they have what you are looking for:

Good luck.
