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!

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.

  1. Make paper characters - either ink bottoms with magic marker or ink pad. Then apply the character outline to paper or paperboard. Decorate to your taste. From there, you have got yourself a movable figure or a refrigerator magnet and whatever else you may come up with.
  2. Cookie Cutters can create holiday ornaments by pressing and cutting out figures from the Styrofoam platter that comes under your meat from the supermarket.
  3. There are some cookie cutters that can stand by themselves. You could fill in and glue on to skeleton to use as figures for your own little stage play atop of and old game board.
  4. Make a wind chimes from a bunch of plastic cookie cutters.
  5. Make a suncatcher for your window using the cookie cutter and cutting out to fit a plastic cup lid. Then color with magic markers. Fit inside the cookie cutter and hang in a sunny window.
  6. Cookie Cutter Mud Cookies. Apply the cookie cutter to mud, let dry and there are your mud figures. Maybe you could decorate your outside planters.
  7. Cut and glue pieces of colored magazine pictures to your cookie cutters. Hang on walls in a scene display.
  8. Make badges or brooches from your cookie cutters super glue a paperclip to the back to fit over shirt pocket.
  9. Cookie Cutter toast and pan cakes. Create after food is cooked. You should use the metal cookie cutters to create those edible forms.
  10. Cookie Cutter counted cross stitch frames - Imagine all the different figures. Better then those bought expensive kits. You can do these with just left over material.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
