Cookie Cutters - For All!!


Kelli over at "There's No Place Like Home" hosts a show and tell every Friday. Hop on over and see her special treasures along with links from others who participate in this fun little activity!

I thought this Friday I would show you my cookie cutter collection. I never intended to have a "collection" but we have a variety store in town that sells very unique shaped cutters. Every time I go in there - I just have to bring one home! I think they are just too cute to leave sitting there on the shelf.





Here is a hand and a tee shirt cutter. I have made these for the kids. They thought they were neat. (You would not believe the "fun" they had eating the fingers off the hand.)





Here is a tea pot. I just picked this one up today. I think I will decorate it with light blue icing and then outline it in a pretty yellow. I was thinking that I would put two pots in a clear bag - along with a tea bag for the elderly ladies in our church. (I think perhaps this one is my favorite - I am not sure though)


Here are my spring cutters. A frog - a butterfly - and a watering can. (Could you have left them sitting on the shelf - they just kept saying buy me buy me!~)



OK - If the tea pot is not my favorite one - the mitten one is! I just think it is adorable! I can not wait to get it decorated for the winter.


Every Pastor's wife needs a church cookie cutter. I found one today. I thought it was cute. (If only church building projects were as easy to make :) )




Just in time for fall - maple leaves. The kids and I actually made cookies with these cutters tonight - (that will explain the flour you see on the leaves). I am planning on decorating them tomorrow and then will post about our fall cookies then.




Hope you are enjoying your fall. Tonight with the oven going and the smell of sugar cookies in the air - I am starting to have "Christmas" feelings. It won't be too much longer.



Thanks so much for stopping in! Hope you have a great week.

What a cute collection!! I haven't seen many of those as cookie cutters, particularly the t-shirt and hand. Love the little teapot and church! I agree, they're too cute to leave in a drawer. I love them displayed in the basket.

I love your cookie cutter collection. Nice cookie cutters are hard to find around here. You have some beauties. The grandsons and I could have a fun time making cookies with those kind of cutters.

Thanks so much for sharing. Your collection is awesome!

Hi Jane :) I like your collection, and I know what you mean about being drawn to cookie cutters. I can not pass them by without looking when I see them around town!

I agree with you about the teapot and mitten. And I laughed about your pastor's wives and the church bldg cutter comment - I will have to be sure to pick one up :) Blessings! Q

I love your cookie cutter collection, and your ideas for using them! I have the tea pot cutter and only used it for tea parties, now I want to do what you suggested with it! The mitten cookies would be could to use for Christmas/winter to do the same thing for the elderly! I have a wonderful tea cake cookie recipe from my grandmother that I use!
