Honeydukes ....You are really organized !!
It's the only part of my life that is!!! I can tell you where my heart with wings cutter is, but I can't find my favorite summer purse, mini tripod, ...
I go to the dollar store and buy "plastic shoe boxes". I label each one with what type, like most of you do and I also number them, since I might have two of Christmas, but didn't need another shoe box until later. That way I can cross reference by box number or box name. Instead of tracing my cutters, I take a digital picture and print it out on my b/w printer. As for cookie cutters that come in big boxes (like the Williams-Sonoma star wars), I keep them in the box. I then put them in a BIG (4' X 2') rubbermaid tub, which I label on the outside. Also, I try to buy colored tubs (orange, red, green..et) to put each category of cutters in ( like orange for Halloween), since I don't have a lot of storage space, the tubs go out in the garage. Each tub is labeled with what number shoe box is in it. I also do this with most of my baking equipment also.
By the way, when I print my pictures out, I print to PDF first, because it can be opened on almost anything. I have a Sony tablet that I take with me every where and if I want to look at my list, all I have to do is open the PDF. I'm also thinking about making a database, so I can search for them easily.
By the way, I just found out that if you go to:
Have a good day
Oh yeah, other than copper gifts, does any one know where I can buy a scalloped square cc? I refuse to pay $15 for one cc.
I use 12x12 scrapbooking storage containers like this:
They stack gorgeously, fit nicely in my cabinet or guest room closet shelves, and are pretty inexpensive. I have them sorted by theme as well. (Food, Christmas, Basic Shapes, Ocean, etc.) I put a label on the front, and whenever I buy a new cutter, I add it to the list on the front of the box so I can see at a glance exactly what is in there.
FYI, these boxes are also awesome for storing dough balls for a big pizza party (I built a wood-fired oven in the backyard).
A cookie cutter in American English and biscuit cutter in Commonwealth English is a tool to cut out cookie/biscuit dough in a particular shape. They are often used for seasonal occasions when well-known decorative shapes are desired, or for large batches of cookies where simplicity and uniformity are required. Cookie cutters have also been used for, among other uses, cutting and shaping tea sandwiches.
I'm barely getting to this and i love everyones ideas since buying cookie cutters seems to be a hobby in itself! LOL
I started keeping a list of cutters too, as well as tips and americolor "colors" and no matter how updated i try to keep it, i end up with doubles or similar. Never a bad thing though, because the kiddos love to rush to "help" when I'm in the middle of an order. So I set them up with a lil patch of dough on another table and they get to make their own at the end of my batch (so they dont get included to mine).
PS...on the scalloped cutters, $15 is insane for a cutter no matter how beautiful...karenscookies.net ($2-$3?) sells them now and so does cheapcookiecutters.com ($5?) somewhere along the under $5 price.
