It’s not hard to find cookie cutters in just about any shape you might want to bake a cookie in. All you need to do is Google around until you find a webstore that carries your design of choice – and there are thousands out there. Now, if you want to head out to the store and pick up an unusual cookie cutter, or are planning to bake this weekend and don’t have the time/desire to wait for shipping (not to mention that you don’t want to spend a lot of money on what should be a very inexpensive baking accessory), your options are more limited. Most stores – even craft stories that carry lots of cutters – tend to have only the most popular and seasonal designs available.
The easiest solution, once you eliminate giving up and going with a different design, is to make your own cookie cutter and at Instructables, there are two poststhat show you how to do just that. The technique involves using a pair of needlenose pliers to shape small pieces of sheet metal. The first Instructable describes how to do this using straight sheet metal from a hobby store. The second instructable describes the process of heating an existing metal cookie cutter and reshaping it into something else.
