Making Your Own Cookie Cutters

Well, ladies, it’s that time of year. . .a time of baking madness. Often times, we find way to cut cost around this time of year. A dollar here or there is a dollar to make magic! So, today, I am going to show you how to make your own cookie cutters.

With Thanksgiving coming up, I wanted to make some festive cookies. However, I don’t have any leaf cookie cutters. So the best part is that they are highly customizable

Step By Step with Pictures

First, I printed a leaf sheet that had simple shapes–nothing too ornate for my first time.

Next, I cut a large sheet of foil. I began folding it layer by layer. I used regular foil I had lying around. Heavy duty foil might be nice, though if you have it.

(Dont judge the rusty ruler. It was my Grandpa and Dad’s–part of a square for woodworking. Sentimental. )

Give it a 1/4 inch fold for extra sturdiness.

Fold for extra sturdiness

I shaped the foil around the leaf and cut one end of the stem a bit longer than the other.

Shaping it around the cookie pattern

I folded the tag end into the other end of the cookie cutter.

And there you have it, a custom cookie cutter! Repeat for as many shapes as you want
