Voila… a Cookie Cutter

2

So the other day I made a D cookie cutter for the college logo sugar cookies I did for the local college.  I decided to make another cookie cutter for the logo of a local high school.  It’s a pretty simple cookie cutter so I thought I would take pictures of the process so you can see how easy it is to make a cookie cutter.

Here is the logo I will be making the cookie cutter for:

Desert Hills HS Shield

Here is a picture of the cookie cutter kit I used:

Cookie Cutter Kit made by R&M Int’l

I bought the kit from Amazon.com, the cost was $14.83.  It comes with enough aluminum to make several cookie cutters.  You can cut the aluminum with a pair of scissors.

Here is what the kit looks like:

The instructions that come with the kit are easy to follow.  The only thing that I had to figure out (because I didn’t really read the instructions that closely – even though they are less than a page long) was that on the long piece one end is for pointed corners, the other is a little larger for more rounded corners.

The first thing I did was form the bottom of the shield:

Then I placed it on the logo and marked where the first upper curve needed to be and marked it with a marker:

Using the mark as my starting point, I created the curve:

When I was making the D cookie cutter I found that the best way to create curves was not to wrap the aluminum around the round guide, but to actually wrap and turn the plastic guide at the same time.

With each step you will need to place your cutter on the picture/guide to determine where your next curves and bends need to be.  The next several pictures will be the rest of the steps I used in making the cookie cutter:

After you have the cookie cutter formed, you finish it off by using the adhesive included with the kit to join the ends together.  To create a strong bond, you are supposed to let the cookie cutter sit for 72 hours before using, or you can put it in the oven at 200-degrees for an hour.

 I hope this post was helpful!

Loved your tutorial! Totally showing my husband this…he tried to make one on his own 6 months ago (we’re talking his own sheetmetal, workshop tools, etc) and it was a huge failure (with all his adorable good intentions though!!) This looks so much more user friendly 😉 Thank you!!
