Hi! Can anyone tell me where I can find hello kitty cookie cutters in US? Everywhere I looked on the internet is in Asia, that's going to take weeks to arrive. TIA
I'm not sure if this will help or not but I made my own with metal sheeting.
Check on the size -- while this type of cutters can be very cute, they also can be rather tiny in comparison to some of our cutters.
just copy the image from the computer onto cardstock and use that as a template to cut the cookies out with a knife. Fast, easy and cheap and you can size the image to your own choosing right on your printer
I agree with Cindy. I ordered one...cost be about $10 bucks on Ebay. It's a small 1" cookie cutter...cute but small...came with a stencil for placement of the eyes, face, bow & whiskers. I made my own stencil for a larger cookie out of the lid of a coolwhip container and cut each cookie out by hand. BTW the person I ordered from sent it out pretty quickly!
I printed this and shrunk it a little. Then cut it out of a plastic lid and hand cut the cookies.
this may be a stupid question but what do you do with the whiskers when you cut your shape
I cut the shape without whiskers and just started them a littlle further in on the face. They were for my daughter's class. She's almost 2 so they only care that it's a cookie....my favorite kind of "customer". The picture is in my gallery if you want to see how it turned out.
emily, those are the cutest hello kitty cookies!! All your cookies are very very nice. Thanks for sharing and advising.
I ordered a 3 inch Hello Kitty cookie cutter from JBox.com. The owners are American who lived in Japan. They have a wherehouse in California so you get the items pretty quick. If they don't have the item in California the item is shipped from Japan. If you need an item that isn't on their website they will contact their partners in Japan to see if the item is available. I had to give a Hello Kitty college graduation party and I got all the Hello Kitty items from this website. They had everything at the California warehouse so there wasn' a delay in receiving my items. The Website is a very good one if you are looking for authentic Asian Items.
I used the method mentioned of printing an image off the internet and hand cutting each one. Worked well even though it takes a bit longer.
I ordered from that place a while back and never received my product. I waited a while cuz they said it was coming from Japan, but by the time i realized i was scammed, it was too late to get a refund from paypal. Don't bother with them.
I got mine from ebay and they arrived really fast ... from Asia.
This is a really big cookie, so allocate a LOT of time to do them. It took me 5 hours to do just 50. (I did 100+ smaller, simpler cookies ... not HK cookies .... for a wedding in under 2 hours and that included bagging them! So I was ticked off with an aching back after 5 hours of doing these Kitty cookies! )
Wow! You people are amazing! Thanks for all the ideas and advices. I really appreciate! I ordered one from ebay, let's see how it works for me.
Indydebi, do you have a link?
I have a Mickey Mouse cutter and just trimmed the ears.
