That's really nice!
I'm kind of accident prone and I think if I tried making cookie cutters, I'd slice my hands to ribbons. Is it hard to do? (maybe I'll make DH do it for me, he's not as accident-prone)
the edges are sharp-ish but i didn't need to put any pressure on them. i did round off the corners on the ends before i stuck them together, i was afraid of my small kids (or even me lol) maybe getting cut when they make cookies.
Very nice! I've made a few - but much simpler designs than yours - a big spider web, a prescription bottle, wedding cake, cloud, withch's hat, etc... I made them BIG - 5" bc I think it takes such a long time for me to decorate a cookie the way I like that it would take DAYS to finish little ones...so I'm going for the big BANG w theses!
What did you use to sea the ends together? I had some trouble w that...
You did a great job making the sun. I am interested in making cookie cutters. What material did you use and how do you fasten the ends together? Thanks for posting.
i used a double stick tape that is REALLY thin like saran wrap thin. i think it will be good. i thought about soldering it but the tape seems great so i guess i'll keep the tape
Wow! Great work - what do you use to make the cutter? Is it something from the hardware store or is there kit online? Thanks for any info.
i bought the refill for the "make your own cookie cutter" kit. since i already have the tools. but i'm going to take some of the metal ribbon to a local tinsmith to see if they have it.
thank you guys for your encouragement
Go to home depot and ask for metal flashing in the width that you want.
Wow, that looks great! and so complex!
Ever since I saw the tutorial on here to make my own I've wanted to try it, but I haven't needed to as yet so I keep putting it off. And the soldering scared me. I sure like the idea of double-sided tape a lot better! Hopefully when I do make one it will turn out as well as yours.
Did you round the top edge of the cutter, the part that you push on to cut the cookie?
no i didn't round it, i wanted to but didn't know how. i thought about using that coating that is used for extra grip on tools, its a liquid u dip it in. i guess its ok like it is but if the kids help i'll put a cardboard piece over it so they can push it safely just in case
