Step 1: Find an old cookie cutter

Decide which cookie cutters you don't mind getting rid of.

Step 2: Heat it up

Heat the old cookie cutter over a burner. Tongs recommended.

Step 3: Smooth it out

Carefully smooth out original shape using needlenose pliars.

Step 4: Shape it

As the metal cools, form the new shape using the pliars.

Step 5: A little more

Once metal cools, it is easier to finish the shaping with your hands.

Step 6: Repeat

Repeat the process with different sized cookie cutters.

Step 7: Try various sizes and shapes, decorate and serve

Different sized cookie cutters offset the simplicity of the shape.

Decorate with homemade frosting. Serve with tea.
