Ideals to make your own cookie cutter!

Ok, I'm new at this and still trying to figure things out but hey we all start somewhere. I needed a Hello Kitty Cookie Cutter for a challenge I entered. I didn't have one and didn't want to wait to order one so I tried making my own.

 This is my favorite Coffee Creamer. I used the container to cut strips of plastic out to shape around the Hello Kitty graphic I printed.


 You can get pretty long strips. These are shorter ones showing. You may have to re-cut the strip to straighten it. 

 Staples the ends together if you need more and to hold the piece together. You can place the plasitic or tin around the graphic to see how much you need before stapling. Next time I may try heavy duty tape.

 You can use Extra Thick Template Plastic that quilters use too. 


Here is a trash can one I worked on using template. Not as heavy as the Creamer container. :)
 This is the Hello Kitty I made using the Creamer Container. It worked great.
Hello Kitty Cookies. :) YUM!

 You can use about any soda can too.

 Be very careful with the cutting. I just used scissors. Use the middle part of course and don't try cutting the rounded tops and bottoms. :)

Trash can using a can. Not as sturdy as the Creamer Container.
You could probably buy flashing (roofing material) at your local hardware to cut strips out of too.

  6. Tami,
    Thanks. You can also buy roofing tin and mark on it and cut them out. I found a place to buy cookie cutters cheap so I don't bother anymore but may make one if I can't find a cutter for it. :)
