I have 2 Monarch butterfly cookie cutters. One is 3" and one is 5.5". I think the 3" is to small and the 5.5" is to big. I really want something inbetween. I've googled and ebayed, but can't find a thing. I've attached a picture of the cookies I will be making (they are from Cake Journal).
Thanks so much,
have you tried making your own? there is a tutorial here for making your own cookie cutters.
Global Sugar Art has several butterfly cutters and molds. First Impressions also has a wide variety of molds, but not cutters. You may want to look there to see if you can find what you need.
Thank you for your replies. I think its actually a Swallowtail. Anyhow, I just made my first cutter a couple of days ago - it was Hello Kitty and took way longer than it probably should have. I have been trying to make this one, but it I can't get it to look like anything remotely resembling a butterfly.

I just did a quick search...maybe this would help you!
I'm confused. Did you want a cutter for the cookie pictured or a monarch?
Here's the cutter/ cookie pictured:
3.75 x 4.5
Here are some monarchs:
This one is 3.5 x 4.5:
This one is available at 3.25 x 4.5 or 2 x 2 3/4:
Either way I hope this helps.
Just an idea if you can't find the exact size you want and if you don't need a large amount. You can draw it to the size you desire and make a template of it. Place that on top of your chilled cookie dough and cut out. I do this a lot as I most of my designs don't have cutters. I don't know if this helps, but I thought I'd pass it on as a 'just in case'.
Take care, Tracy
Thank you all for the wonderful ideas and links. I obviously do not know my butterflies. LOL
