How to make your own cookie cutter - Page 2

post #16 of 47
Wow! This tutorial is great. Thanks a million for posting and with pics too! I do have a question. Have you ever folded over the cut flashing just a bit so when you actually use the cutter you have a hem that is softer on the fingertips? Just asking cause I notice the purchased cookied cutters are like that. I wasn't sure if it would make it more difficult to shape the flashing if it was doubly thick on the top.

You know I was thinking about that and I thought what about buying some of that paint on rubbery substance, I am not sure what it is called. But just paint the rim with it and let it dry it turns to rubber. I think that might be faster and easier to work with. Just a thought.

I have thought about it but just figured it would get food and whatever else stuck in there so I've never done it......If you REALLY wanted to I don't see why you couldn't use some adhesive and put some type of rubber on the top......I don't even use my hands to press down on it so I've never bothered! I roll my rolling pin over the top of the cookie cutters, don't ask me why, I'm just goofy LOL

kahlstead. I dont' think that is goofy. I think that is a great idea. I may just start doing that. It would save time and a little cash, that's always important. You are so good. You deserve a metal!!! thumbs_up.gif As far as the rubber being food safe not sure. I would have to check though it would realistically never come in contact with food.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif My quest for a particular cutter is now over. I have been searching for 2 years for cookie cutters I had seen on an old issue of Family Circle Magazine. I contacted the magazine, found out who made the cookies on the cover, contacted her (long story.. the tinsmith who made the cutter has passed away) and I have written to several cookie cutter stores to see if they would make one to no avail ( I can't afford the high price of having a custom cutter made! Now I can just make it myself!!!!! I have enlarged the picture and have what I think is a good pattern....can't wait to try it! I'm going to try and post a picture of what I have been search for (hope they post, not sure how to do it)...look at these adorable little girls and boys... they are just tooo cute!!! Prettiest cookies I've ever seen!

click on add attatchment and the click browse and find the photo on your comp. and then double click on the file name and then just hit submit.......if it doesn't go through look at the top of the page, it will tell you in red if your file is too large.....I think it allows up to 800 pixels in the forums....if it's too large go to www.shrinkpictures.com and click on custom size and enter 800 pixels and then browse, double click on the picture file name and it will shrink it for you...then you just right click on the photo and save it to your pc....then you can add it to the forum with the first part of these directions...hope that makes sense?

Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

Ok, here goes.... (fingers are crossed)

didn't work...I follwed the steps and I'm not getting a message that there is a problem with size. Does it need to be hosted from something like photobucket or imageshack?

Khalstead,

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I just made my first cutter and I am sooooo excited. Granted it is only a rectangle but it is a size that I could not find anywhere (not even on the net). I am going to make tons of cutters (I already have about 200 so why not more). Think of all the money I could have saved myself (and my husband, lol!). You are a genius (for real)!!!!!

oh man........those are absolutely adorable cookies!!! Those are so great, I can see why you wanna make em'....they don't seem like they would be THAT difficult to make a cutter..the scallops on the dress will probably be the hardest part....I'd say use a small dowel rod or pencil to achieve the curve though....can't wait to see the cookies if you get around to makin th em!!! I love em

Peeverly- that's so awesome....I'm so glad that my being a cheapskate has helped someone else LOL It just seems rediculous to pay so much money for a rectangular shaped cookie cutter...when really if you made one that's pretty much the EASIEST one you could possibly make!! Glad to help out
