I wanted to order the large teardrop cutters from Lindy Smith but Global Sugar Art is out of stock and won't get them until after I need them. I found some dewdrop cutters by Stephen Benison. Do you think they will work? Could I straighten them out and cut a little off to get them to the right size? I tried to post picks of both cutters but can't get it to work. They are both on GSA website.

I would search another site. Or could you use regular rose petal cutters and alter those slightly. Free hand maybe or make your own cutters.

hi, try going to the henna page so many of these shapes are used in henna they have a page of patterns you can print it and enlarge them. it's like making a fat comma, hope this helps

Thanks, I will try those ideas out and see what works best. Peg, how do you make your own cutters? I was wondering if this was possible. Thanks for your help

Thank you so much peg!! I'm definitely going to try this. I can't wait to go to the hardware or craft store. Thanks again. You've saved me time, money and stress.

Thanks lilym. I looked into that too. I just wasn't sure if it would get here before I need it and if I was willing to pay extra for quick delivery. Since I already have things to order from GSA is was hoping to find something comparable there. Maybe if I'm desperate I will still order them there. Thanks for everyones help.

Have you looked into buying them from Lindy Smith's website? I've ordered cake supplies from the UK before and I've received my orders incredibly fast and shipping was actually cheaper than buying from the US.
