This Instructable will show you how to make a flower blossom cookie cutter in just a few minutes, with only a can and a pair of pliers. No need for tin snips or metal working skills. And there's a very low chance you'll cut yourself.
I made this one specifically for hanami
cookies. I have a Williams Sonoma
just around the corner, but they charge $10 or more for a single cookie cutter. Down the block Sur La Table
is slightly better at $8 each. And none of them had cherry blossoms.
These instructions are specifically for a five petal cherry blossom, but you can easily use the same technique to make six petal daisies, or clovers for St. Patrick's Day, or gears for your cookie mechanique.
- 1 'tin' can, cleaned. Bigger the can, bigger the cookies.
- Strip of paper long enough to go around the can.
- Ruler. (With centimeter markings if you have one.)
