...got it as a freebie with some 10 cent cutters at a garage sale. We thought at first it was 2 pine cones (but the tops don't look like it)... or pineapples... but it really doesn't look like that. icon_confused.gif Am I blind to what this is supposed to be? The bow is easy to figure out on the other side icon_lol.gif

Thanks.

I think they're pine cones. And those lines coming out of the tops of them are pine needles.

LOL! I don't know, but the bow would lead me to Christmas, which in return would lead me to pine cones, but I have no idea what those top bits are meant to be! Sorry, wasn't much help was I lol?!

I just can't see the whole pine needle thing. It kind of reminds me of the aura around Baby Jesus head in Catholic paintings, but of course that wouldn't make sense. It's just a weird cutter.

ok, I just turned my laptop upside down for another view of this. It looks like a butterfly. If you look at it like its pictured, it looks like pinecones with twists of lime on top. Strange.

Looks like strawberries to me.

well the bow on the back makes me think of christmas which makes me think of a wreath and you do see wreaths with pinecones and two jingle bells on them......maybe that's what it is??

I still say it's pine leaves icon_wink.gif I know it looks like a halo, but ... you could ice the pinecone part in brown, ice the halo part in white (snow), then pipe on dark green pine needles splaying out of the top of the pine cones ... and with a plate of those and some red bows highlighted with gold ... I think they'd be great Christmas cookies.

KrisD13 Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:05pm

Pineapples. The top round things look like the slices of pineapple. Sorry, acorns to me look more like strawberries....short and squat, with a flatter top. icon_sad.gif

Just my HO

bellejoey Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:05pm

I thought at first the first one was two owls sitting with their backs to us! (But,,,,then again,,,I always see things differently) LOL! ...But....looking at them....they are definately acorns!

tinascakes Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:07pm

My guess is pinecones.

Melody25 Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:09pm

Looks like a pinapple to me..Could also be Pine canes with those fuzzy burr things they get.

Sunflowerbagel Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:09pm

okay, now I'm even more confused icon_lol.gif

My initial thought was Christmas, because of the bow. Most of the plastic cutters I see are red or green... this is brown.

I just googled some images of acorns and I can't see it.

I'm seeing the owls now!! icon_biggrin.gif

chocolateandpeanutbutter Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:13pm

I guess I really see things differently. My first thought was bootprints! I guess if it's a Christmas cutter, they could be Santa's bootprints...

Yup...it's like one of those tests the eye doctor gives you for color blindness!! LOL!

Tiffysma Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:17pm

I think it's pine cones too.

I have a clue, but can't find any information on the web:

gabbenmom Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:26pm

I would also go with pine cones, but think of it this way. With all the ideas everyone has given you, you can make it into any one of the things mentioned!!! You have several cutters in one thumbs_up.gif

Teekakes Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:32pm

I have to say Acorns, because, Pinecones do not have caps on them and Acorns do. Your cutter has definite caps the way I am seeing it and the shape is Acorn like. The only thing that makes me question these being a Pinecone is the little V shapes, other than that I would say Acorns hands down.
Second cutter definitely a Bow.

Looking at it on the really bright side you have a rather unique and versatile cookie cutter! I can see a pair of Owls being made from this cutter as well as Pinecones or Acorns. Cool! icon_smile.gif

FromScratch Posted 5 May 2007 , 4:40pm

They are pinecones.. Acorns don't have bumpy sides.. they are smooth and come to a point. I see pinecones with pine needles on the top. It's a plastic cutter from 1984.. and an impression cutter to boot. The v's are meant to be the impressions for the texture of the pinecone segments and the top is round to cut the cookie with the lines to represent pine frawns. At least that's what I see..

Wendoger Posted 5 May 2007 , 7:35pm

Ok, I just googled 'acorn' and now I think its more pinecone...acorns are smooth, no bumps on the side...
PINECONES!!!!!

Looks like shoe prints to me. LOL. I'm no help.

TPDC Posted 6 May 2007 , 3:30am

Okay, this is funny. There are so many different things you could decorate this cookie to be. Everyone sees something different.

Me, I see pineapples.

ShyannAutumn Posted 6 May 2007 , 5:54am

my 2 cents....

Those are pine cones. At first I thought they were pinapples but after looking at it for a while the circular top with lines are the pine needles.
Pineapple would have the reverse shape (possibly) larger on the bottom (not pointed) narrowing sightly towards the top (where the lines are).

sueco Posted 6 May 2007 , 6:29am

Read the first post and realized you already knew it was two cutters in one, so forget my original post. But I think they are pinecones, too.

Sugar_Plum_Fairy Posted 6 May 2007 , 7:03am

Yeah, I'm goin' with pinecones on this one.

Lazy_Susan Posted 6 May 2007 , 8:33am

I think it's exactly what everyone has suggested it to be! What a wonderfully versatile little cutter icon_biggrin.gif

vickymacd Posted 6 May 2007 , 10:15am

I think it somewhat looks like Scottish Thistles. The bottom would be a green and the spikey tops would be pink.

Sugar_Plum_Fairy Posted 6 May 2007 , 1:07pm

After reading vickymacd's post I did a Google for Scottish Thistle and I do believe she might be onto something.

Here are the photos:
