Is there a list anywhere of cutters that people use for two totally different cookies? Or could we start one in this thread?

Like I just got a cutter from Copper gifts (my first one!!) and it is a bridal bouquet, but it could also be a tree.

Does this make sense? I had more in my head but now they're all gone.

I have a tiny one that is a sillouette of a cat (like a cat sitting on a fence, not a cat where you can see all four legs). I used this one ..... cut the dough off that is the cat's tail .... gave them to a dentist friend because they looked just like a tooth!

Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for! There has to be a ton of them, I just am having a hard time coming up with any.

The beer mug, laid on it's side, kinda looks like a briefcase or a purse.

I use a gingerbread cutter to make babies for shower gifts.

I used the easter egg cutter to make strawberries, also for the Kermit frog face cookies...got the idea from another cc'er.

I love these threads, there were more, but I had trouble finding them so I asked the same question a few months ago and here's a link to some of the great ideas posted then.

I thought for sure I could find a list of shapes and other uses somewhere on the net, but maybe I just didn't use the correct search words because I came up with nothing!

Oh, I forgot, I just bought the onesie cutter... not for the onesie-no babies in my house, but I'm going to give it a pink tutu(with the ribbon tip) and spaghetti straps, I guess you could also make it wearing a bikini or swimsuit as well.

I found a snowman face wearing a top hat cutter on an after-Christmas sale. It's the round part for the head, sticky-outs on either side for the hat brim, and the rectangle part for the hat crown. I put it on the counter to pay for it and the cashier said, "Oh, you bought Kenny." I'm like, what? And she turned the cutter upside down and said, "See? It's Kenny from South Park!"

WOW! 7yyrt - Thank you so much for posting those! Great Ideas!!

Amifsud Posted 11 Mar 2009 , 5:19pm

I use a flower shape or a seashell shape for a turkey. Also lemon cutter for a baby face if you round it a bit. There is a photo of the turkey and the baby face in my photos. (Could not attach it to this post)

HeidiCrumbs Posted 11 Mar 2009 , 5:24pm

7yyrt, that is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing those, it's just what I was looking for.

The other ideas were great! Thank you for posting, now I'm off to look at the link.

I have a hot air balloon that I used for a tree. I've used the onesie cutter for T-shirts (just cut the bottom part off).

indydebi Posted 11 Mar 2009 , 10:05pm

Hey! You could use the lemon-shaped cutter to make Stewie, from Family Guy!

Cut the nipple off a baby bottle and you have a mason jar.

I have used the tombstone cutter for a top hat. I have used it for Abraham Lincoln and Cat in the Hat. I have also cut the reel part off the fishing pole and used it as a toothbrush. If you cut the tie off the diploma it makes a great burrito.

Newatdecorating Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 12:17am

I've used a baby bottle for a bottle of glue.

Twopeasinapod Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 12:21am

I was looking through yankeegal's pictures and pulled up one of her school supplies pictures. In it she said she used the baby bottle for the school glue cookie. My son reminded me that we have used the margarita cutter as a trophy, the bat as a therometer and the birdhouse (cut off the little bottom part and use it on its side) as an arrow. He is WAY creative about how to use the cutters! icon_smile.gif

Upside-down tulips make great pac-man ghosts!

bbmom Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 10:55am

Oh yeah, we use the upside down tulip as a pineapple.

GayeG Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 12:45pm

Wow! All these great ideas has made my (pittiful compared to most of yours!) amt. of cutters - triple!! And I DONT have to buy extra storage to house them all!! Wooo hooo! Thanks ya'll!

JenWhitlock Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 12:58pm

I used egg cutters for baby shoes.
I used a scalloped round cutter for a sun flower.
I used a rounded flower cutter (the kind with 8-10 petals) for a sun (think beach theme).
I had a standup daisy cutter - I cut the stem off to get just the daisy flower (fit better with the theme of the other cookies)

not super creative, but hope it helps.

bobwonderbuns Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 1:04pm

Wow! This is a really good thread!! So many creative people here!! icon_biggrin.gif

leahk Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 1:13pm

i've used an evergreen tree cutter upside down for a bunch of grapes.

yellobutterfly Posted 12 Mar 2009 , 1:15pm

I've heard you can use a heart to make strawberries.

Wilton.com has lots of creative uses for the gingerbread cutter - turning it into an elf, baby, etc. You can turn the girl cutter into Ms. Claus.

Oohh...and this weekend I'm turning the old lady hat into a spaceship/ufo, and the gingerbread man into an astronaut and martian! (all ideas from other cc'rs)!

AWESOME THREAD!!
