LOL!!! k8memphis - isn't it funny how we've grown accustomed to our solutions being expensive and difficult to obtain?!

Everyone needs a break once in a while.

I've dabbled in the idea of making my own cookie cutters simply because I've spent $1.50 for a specific cutter and $6.00 in S&H . . . crazy! After reading this, I'm going to give it a try!

Thank you for all the hard work in researching and sharing these ideas! thumbs_up.gif

Thanks Kim and Khalstead for brainstorming on edging ideas! SweetDreamsAT - I use the JB Weld Cold Weld (iit also says "JB Kwik" on the front) that KHalstead recommends in her tutorial. You can get it at Home Depot. It is food safe and does the trick wonderfully. I just scrape off any bits that extrude from where I overlapped it and am good to go! My DH picked up some handy-dandy little clamps at Home Depot that hold them very well as they dry. Today I will try out the new Frankie cutter I pictured and post how it works with and without the edge protector. I am wondering if with the new rounded edges, if I will even need it. icon_biggrin.gif I'll post once done.

Thanks - I had never heard of JB Weld... don't know how I missed that in KHalstead's tutorial icon_confused.gif
Also, I thought of another question... did you and Joe talk at all about him being able to fold down the top edge like 1/8"? (you probably did, you've been so thorough on your research) I was just curious what he had to say about it.

I did not talk to Joe about that as figured that would increase the cost and I was trying to watch that. I'll call him on Monday to see how much that would be and post the info. I did try to turn it myself with a tool that is used for that purpose with no luck. We will see what he has to say! That may well be a great option!

I went to Lowe's and purchased small strips of metal, 1" x 6" and bent them. They were really cheep. I have used plastic dip before and it works great. I also drilled a small hole on each end and connected with wire.

Great post! I wanted to mention that some states don't allow cookie cutters with a rolled edge to be used in a commercial kitchen (too difficult to keep clean), so those of you that are thinking of going that route, it might be something to think of before you invest in too many rolled edge cookie cutters. So in this case it's good that you can't roll the metal, bad since it's still a little sharp.

Good point, Michelle! I am going non-rolled, but will check the cost for those interested and post it.

UPDATE TO EDGE ISSUE - I used the new cutters I made and used the idea of the binder edge on the Frankie cookie. It worked quite well. For the witch cutter, which has too many turns to adhere a protector to, I simply placed a little rubber mini mat I use to open jar lids on top and it worked like a charm. Due to the texture, it gripped quite well and didn't slide like a piece of wood placed on top could. I was very pleased with this option.
