In my opinion, many cookie cutters wear a disguise. It's like they celebrate Halloween every day! I love trying to figure out their alter-egos.
Recently, I was digging through my bin of Halloween cutters in search of a witch cutter. I knew I had at least one head/hat cutter, but I wanted the full witchy body. I stumbled on this cutter:
An ordinary bat cutter, one of which I have NEVER used (I have many cutters that fall into this category. . . ). However, this cutter was turned on its side in the bin. I mentally could "see" things in the cutter:
Here's the result:
By the way, here's another design that I "saw".
I have absolutely no idea when I'll need a man with a little hat and big nose, but I know what cutter I'll use!
I love re-purposing cutters, especially using a single cutter for making multiple designs for one occasion. A skull cutter has so many possibilities! I have a small collection of skull cutters, and I am always on the lookout for a new skull style.
Many skull cutters have the built-in cheekbones, but not all. In fact, the cutter on the upper right is one of my favorite cutters to make ladybugs!
I used this skull cutter to make a collection of Halloween characters- ironically, a skull was not one of them!
I decided to create a Frankenstein, pumpkin, mummy, and Dracula.
