I've read on here that people cut out the cookies by hand with a template. What do you use for the template? I'm making cookies today and I don't have the cutters and I was wondering if I cut the design out on card stock, would that work? Please help me I'm clueless icon_cry.gif Thanks so much for any help!!!!!!

I think that some people do use plain cardstock or cardboard.

I use cardstock, but I laminate it before using it for a template.

Even in a pinch - I use waxed paper. It is a little flimsy, but it works. icon_smile.gif

I laminate clipart, then cut out and use.

My husband collects the booze sets that come out every Christmas. There are always plastic sheets in the front of the packaging, and I save those. They are perfect for cutting into templates. You can also buy stencil plastic at places like JoAnnes.
