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