I was wondering where you buy your cookie cutters from? How much do you pay per cutter, not custom?
I have a box of the 101 from Wilton, so I have been making due with those. I did buy a custom cutter from ecrandal.

Silvercat, I pick them up when I see something cute, like at hobbylobby or something like that. I actually saw some really cute ones and cool sprinkles in a supermarket in UK this summer.

I tend to order from www.kitchengifts.com, or www.coppergifts.com, but they are quite expensive, but will last a long time, and you just search for whatever you need, they probably have it. I really like my plastic cutters I've had for years, but my old metal ones rust.
Keep your eyes open, supermarkets, hardware stores, gift stores, a lot of times they have unique cutters.

I find cutters in baking packs designed for children, including those for using with modelling clay. I also pick up different moulds and cutters from web sites specialising mainly in tools and equipment for clay modelling, soap modelling and papercraft. So many of the skills we use are transferrable to other crafts, as long as you are sure the materials used in their construction are not toxic and washable there are lots of possibilities. Think laterally, good luck.

I buy them whenever I find one that looks interesting (there's a large craft store a couple blocks from my house that has a big selection of cutters). SurLaTable has a good selection, if there's a store near you. And there's always eBay! Tons of cutters available there.

www.cookiecuttershop.com for metal
www.coppergifts.com for copper

I like the metal for mini cutters, but they tend to bend fairly easily. For big cutters that I know I will use over and over I buy copper. It is definitely an investment.
