I just wanted to thank the person who posted a thread on making Imprints using the metal strip from cello and tin foil boxes!!!
I was in need of a heart shape small cutter in a pinch and remembered reading about this method. I worked!!!
So i took off all i had and made scroll designs "S" and "C" ...perfectfor imprinting fondant or BC !!
Good price too...free~

I couldn't find the thread, but what a great tip...Thanks and I wanted to pass it on!

Next I'm gonna try to make a topper.

Can you explain how you use these strips? I can't picture what you're doing.

I am not 100% sure as I didnt see the original thread but it sounds to me like they are removing the metal piece off of aluminum foil/saran wrap boxes. After removing it from the box bending it into the desired shape and using that to press into the BC/fondant to make an impression.

Yes, it took me a minute to evision it. Take off the metal strip that cuts the wrap/aluminum, then you can bend it into whatever you want. Great idea!

Really great idea! Does anyone have a pic they could post of a cake they've used this tecnique on so we could see how it looks? That would be great!

Took me a minute to but ny the 3rd or 4th post it all came together! LOL Sounds easy enough! I guess you could also print out the shape/letter and then mold the metal strip to the print out!

This might be the post the OP is referring to from a couple of months ago:

Sewsweet2 mentions it a little more than half-way down the page. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

Thanks for finding it.... I will be using mine in a couple days and I will post. I used them ( 1lg. S, 1 sm. S, & a C) on some left over fondant and then piped over the impression. I also could add on little designs where i wanted. Now, i think the ideal is to use boxes that are empty ~ I was so excited I went and took them off my still full....LOL. Oh well, worth it!
