Part of the fun of the Christmas season is baking cookies in all shapes and sizes. If you don’t have the cookie shapes you want, making your own custom cookie cutters is easy: all you need is a printout of your shape and a cheap foil pan.

At Juggling Frogs, Carolyn explains how she wanted a set of camel-shaped cookie cutters, but couldn’t find any. Instead, she printed out the clip art of the camels, used some pipe cleaners to measure the length of foil she needed to make the silhouette, and then cut up the pan to make the materials for her cookie cutter.

The process is a bit lengthy, but it’s easy and cheap, and the only materials you need are the shape you want for the cookies, the pipe cleaners, the foil pan, and a pair of scissors. When you’re finished, you’ll have a cookie cutter that’s the right shape and is safe enough for kids to use in the kitchen.
