Check out my sister's tutorial on how to make your own cookie cutter.
1" Aluminum strip (the aluminum needs to be food safe)
paper and pen to create your shape or a picture.
small pliers and other tools you can use to shape the metal, like a knife sharper.
adhesive (I used a 2.8 Oz J-B Stik Weld since it was safe for drinking water)
Sketch out your design for the cookie cutter
Fold sketch in half, and cut out sketch
Trace sketch to a new piece of paper
Measure the pattern using a piece of string to find the length of aluminum you will need.
Use the string to find out where you want to cut the aluminum.
Cut the aluminum using pliers or scissors. Be sure to add about 1 inch to allow for overlay.
Shape the aluminum using the sketch as your guide. The aluminum is pretty soft so for most of the parts you can just use your fingers. For corners, use small pliers and round the shape by going around a knife sharpener.
Once you finish your cookie cutter should look like your pattern, don't worry if it matches exactly.
To secure the cookie cutter, first use sandpaper to scorn the metal
Mix the adhesive and apply to the 1 in overlay.
Use pliers to keep the adhesive together, or if you’re really fancy, you can use clamps if you have them.
Once the adhesive is dry. Clean your cookie cutters with soap and warm water and they are ready to use!
