pic of the hibiscus cookie cutter I made....

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Here's a pic of the hibiscus cookie cutter I made by cutting apart a large heart cutter from Hobby Lobby ($.69), reshaping it with a needle nose pliers, and gluing back together with JBWeld cold glue from Home Depot. You can see the pick of the cookies too. I just don't know how to "batch" send out a pic to all the people requesting a pic of it so I put it here.

(I've said this before...but huge credit goes to KHalstead for the idea of making your own cutters. thumbs_up.gif )

I've just found the big cutters a nice option to reshape because you end up with a nice turned over edge just like any other cutter. If you have any questions on specifics, refer to KHalstead's tutorial at the bottom part of cc's home page.

Thanks again!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif Jennifer

Beautiful! I really like these, I'll have to try it with my kit. I've had it for over a year and have been too intimated to try making one, lol.

You are very talented and have been gifted with an artist's hand.
I saw your flicker album and your work is like painting on canvas.
Do you use any of the RI recipes here on the forum?

terrific cutter, but I love your vibrant colors and details on the hibiscus cookies.

Lovely accent for any Hawaiian or luau get together.
