Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Start with a cylinder with the dimensions of 45.00x50.00. You can make the height however tall you want your cookie cutter to be.
Create another cylinder (hole) with the dimensions of 20.00x32.00. Position the hole over the first cylinder and group the two objects.
Create a box (hole) with the dimensions of 20.00x58.00. Position the hole over the pre-existing object to cut off the bottom. Group the two objects together.
Create a box with the dimensions of 9.00x13.50. Rotate it to your liking and position the box on the pre-existing object. Group the two objects together.
Create a roof shape with the dimensions of 7.06x9.00. Position to match the image, and group the two objects together.
You should now have an object that looks like this.
Copy and paste a duplicate of the shape.
Scale down one of the shapes to the dimensions of 45.50x46.50. At this point, I ungrouped the second object and scaled down the "stem" part separately so that it would fit inside the pre-existing "stem" better. Make a copy of the shape without a "stem" and save it for later.
Turn the smaller object into a hole. Make a copy of the solid shape and save it for later. Position the hole over the solid image and group the two objects together.
At this point shape up the object if you need/want to. Get the shape how you want it to look.
Create a roof shape and rotate it so that it stands on its end. Scale the object to the dimensions of 6.65x9.34. Copy and paste a copy of the object, and make the second copy a hole. Scale the hole to the dimensions of 3.98x5.60. Position the hole on the pre-existing roof shape, and group the two objects together. You have now completed one of the eyes.
Scale the eye (roof shape) to the dimensions of 6.25x8.00. Copy and paste a duplicate of the object and align the two within the pumpkin shape, as shown in the image.
Insert a round roof shape and rotate it so that it stands vertically. Scale the image to the dimensions of 10.00x20.00.
Copy and paste the round roof shape. Make the second object a hole and scale it down to the dimensions of 7.00x16.00. Position the hole over the pre-existing round roof shape and group the two objects together. You now have created the mouth. Position the mouth with in the pumpkin frame as shown in the image.
Take the two objects you set aside earlier. Turn the smaller one, without a "stem" into a hole. Take the other object and scale it to the dimensions of 50.42x56.00. Make both objects have the height of 3. Position the hole over the other shape and group the two objects together.
Position the object you just made uppon the cookie cutter, and group the two together. Create a box with the dimensions of 5.00x13.00 and a height of 3.00. Make this box a hole. Position the hole within the stem as shown in the image, and group the objects together. You should now have an object that looks like this. Make sure to make the eyes and mouth flush with the very top of the object. *Note* In the image the eyes and mouth are not flush with the top, this is wrong. Make sure they are flush.
Make four boxes with the dimensions of 3.00x17.00, and a height of 3.00. Position the boxes as shown in the image. They should be flush with the top of the object.
Create two boxes with the dimensions of 3.00x8.00, and a height of 3.00. Position them as shown in the image. They should be flush with the top of the object.
Create two boxes with the dimensions of 3.00x10.61. Position them as shown in the image. Group everything together.
You should now have a shape that looks like this. Select the object and flip it upside down, so it is easier to print.
Your cookie cutter is now complete and ready for printing.
