I don't know who posted the thread you are referring to but my husband uses thin small strips of brass and shapes whatever I need and then welds it together. He makes gumpaste cutters for me. HTH

My husband made me two based on the instructions found here on CC. Maybe he bought too heavy of a guage of aluminum, but I don't think I will get him to do another. It was a serious PITA. And he had to buy a bulk amount of aluminum...plus the snips, etc. Ended up with two $40 cookie cutters! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I opened the link. Thank you sooo much! It seems tedious, but great for flowers or shapes you would use more often than others.

I know this isn't necessarily the professional way to do it, but I made my own cookie cutter for some cookies I did a while ago. I bought a very large cookie cutter, I think it was a huge pumpkin. I cut it open, flattened it out and then rebent it into the shape I wanted. I actually used an epoxy to seal the end. Mine didn't have many details, but I think it would work either way.

There is also a kit you can buy--sugar craft maybe. (about 30$) I have it and it works pretty well. I've made about 10 or 12 cutters with it and they work fine. It comes with aluminum strips a board some tools for shaping and crimping and an adhesive.

I also make mine from large inexpensive cutters. I dont open mine up though so no need to reseal.I print out whatever clip art I need, unbend the cutter from its original shape into a circle, lay it on top of the printout and using a pair of craft pliers bend it into the new shape. Thats how I made my "cars", hibiscus, and key cookie cutters. It cost $1.25 and some patience and maybe 30min.
