Cookie cutters can be used for more than just making cookies. Their variety of shapes and sturdy construction make them perfect for use with other foods and many types of craft projects. This is a guide about creative uses for cookie cutters.
Here's a way to display my cookie cutters. Some are gifts, some are ones I bought, some are my mom's, and some are my grandmother's. I can't tell you what wonderful memories they all hold for me, as I can remember why I bought or received every one. I get lots of compliments on them, too!
THEY LOOK TERRIFIC !!! . I WAS THINKING OF DOING THAT ALSO BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE EACH ONE, BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE SPACE FOR ALL OF MINE, SO WHAT I DID WAS I GOT THICK BLACK TWINE AND STRUNG THEM IN BUNCHES AND HUNG THEM AROUND A CURTAIN ROD, IT GETS PRETTY HEAVY, AFTER 7 OR 8 BUNCHES OF 25 OR MORE ON EACH BUNCH BUT NOW I HAVE THIS FABULOUS VALLANCE THAT IS OVER MY SINK, HAHAH AND THEY ARE EASY TO GET TO SO I CAN USE THEM ,
Any ideas for ones you cannot hang? I have some vintage tupperware ones that do not have holes for string or hooks...some of the handles broke off so my DH glued pen caps on! What ingenuity!
this one takes the cake, very nice& so much memory to it, im sure.
If you're crazy for cookie cutters, you probably have a drawerful of all shapes and sizes just begging to be put to use. Here are some ways to have fun with your stash, without rolling out the dough.
While preparing dinner last night, I decided on something different in the presentation of the meal. I took slices of Kraft cheese and using a frog cookie cutter, I cut the cheese and placed one frog on each plate.
When my children were home, we were on a pretty tight budget. I would save the white foam meat trays and use the cookie cutters to cut designs in the meat trays.
Place cookie cutters on top of frosted cakes or cupcakes then pour candy sprinkles or colored sugar inside the shapes. Remove the cookie cutters and you have a nice decoration.
I hope I helped and now you turn on you creativity and come up with more reuses of those COOKIE CUTTERS. Happy Thinking And Creating

I had to show my son's Tiger Scout Troop about scrapbooking. I found mini scrap books on sale at Walmart for $0.25 each. I then took cheap cookie cutters and had them use for templates for cutting out their pictures. They just traced the outside or inside of the cookie cutter on their picture with a marker and then they knew where to cut.
Use your cookie cutters for something other than making cookies. Small cookies cutters can be used to press shapes (heart shaped for instance) out of carrots, cucumber coins, apple slices and any other vegetable that can be sliced thinly or flatly.
Inexpensive cookie cutters make cute seasonal napkin rings. By Linda
Use cookie cutters for mobile designs and then create a mobile or use them in kids play doh. My son loves them to draw also - you draw the outside shape.
Seasonal cookie cutters make great festive napkin rings and can be a little party favor, too. Just add a bright bit of ribbon or raffia.
If you are as bad as I am at decorating cookies, try using a cookie cutter as a "stencil". Choose a glass/cup/mug that is wider across than your holiday shaped cookie cutter. Use the glass to cut your dough into circular cookies. Once baked and cooled, place your holiday cookie cutter on top of the cookie and put icing inside the cutter. When it firms up, lift the cookie cutter off and your cookie will be decorated perfectly.

I have used them for drawing on sweatshirts for painting too. Great idea! (11/10/2008)
