I know a lady who cuts up used milo tins to make cutters.

milo tin? i'm not familiar with that. sounds very interesting

Milo is a chocolaty drink that we have in Australia.  It comes in a metal tin.  She cuts the tin into strips and then bends it to the shape she wants.  I presume the metal is a good thickness as she has no interest in any other sort of tin.

I cut soda cans and make my own cookie cutters.

Do you have trouble with them bending out of shape when cutting because the metal is so thin?

Bakencake, you are a genius. but more than that

 

what a sweet Mom you are--what a beautiful story

 

how much sweeter making my own cookie cutters like this will

 

be with sucha story of inspiration

 

what is your little girl's name if i might ask?

 

you got my vote for mother of the year

Bakencake, Thanks for the link for the cutters made with soda cans.  Can you get more than one use out of these?  Are they sturdy enough to be washed and kept for future use?  Also did you cut yourself at all?  How long did it take you to make each cutter?  Thanks again.  P.S. Where are you in NY?  I am on Long Island.

You can also look for sales on large, simple cutters and re-bend them into the shapes you need.
