Has anyone seen the 1 inch wide aluminum strip used in make your own cookie cutter kits anywhere other than those kits or the refills?

Thanks Jan...I was trying to avoid cutting my own strips, 'cause then you have to file the edges...guess I'll quit being cheap icon_lol.gif and just buy a couple of the refills from the kits

All the aluminum and copper flashing in my hardware store was WAAAY too wide (8" was the narrowest) and way too much (seems like 30 or 40 FEET was the smallest roll) and all I wanted was 1 cookie cutter with minimal cutting. I went to the plumbing department and got copper hanging strap - 3/4" wide by 10' long for $3.24. It worked great and already has holes so I just ran a bolt thru the holes and put a nut on it to close off the cookie cutter - no gluing or taping. They had aluminum too but I thought copper might be more food safe.
