Hi All,

Been a lurker for a while but I need some help please!

I'm desperately looking for some tiny micro butterfly cutters for decorating cupcakes, 1cm or smaller. Does anyone know where I can get some from or whether there's an alternative way to make such small butterflies?

Please help I'm desperate.

Thanks

HI!

I use a paper punch for scrapbooking. A friend sent one to me and Ive been head over heels in love with it since!

I dont have a pic posted because I dont spend much time on CC anymore ( too much drama for me)

If you need a visual, let me know and ill upload a pic of the actual punch as well as the teeny-tiny ( but they come in all sizes) butterfly that it makes.

FYI- i roll my fondant the thickness of the space it will fit in the punch, then give it a minute or 2 to get a bit hard, slide it in, push down and et voila! out comes a beautiful butterfly!!

HTH & let me know if you need any additional info!

Jess

Can you use a scrapbooking template?

Jessdesserts- such a neat way to do it. I love to see and hear how people think outside the box to get the details and effects they want.

Global Sugar Art has lot of butterfly cutters. PME has a set of 3 cutters the smallest is 1 1/4 " to the largest is 2 1/2". Also patchwork cutters is a nice set.

Dummy me, recently I was shocked to find that the clay aisle at my local hobby store had tons of cutters.

Why didn't I think of that before?

If the scrapbook thing doesn't work, I did use PME cutters and they work fine like previous poster stated. good luck!
