If you're hopping, you've arrived here from the very awesome Ike's World.
My project is below the blog roll. Be sure to visit all the creepy bloggers and leave some comment love!
So, my bestie, Lynn, sent me a make-your-own-cookie-cutter kit. I was waiting for just the right idea to pop into my head and this week it did. My daughter's birthday. She loves the Freddy franchise! I Googled images of the character and drew what I thought would be viable as a cutter. I've been making cut out cookies forever and I knew it couldn't be too detailed.
Use the shaping tools that come with the kit to form the shape, comparing the metal to the drawing after each bend.
Make sure that you have an overlap of metal to glue together. The kit provides an adhesive tape, but you could certainly use a metal glue and clamp it.
Then I drew out what I thought might work for the iced ginger-Fred cookie.
Here's my Ginger-Fred rhyme, it went on the front of her card:
Ginger-Fred is coming for you
Open the oven door
Now the timer ticks
Put him on a plate
Bake more Ginger-Fred Men
Ginger-Fred was inside the card saying
"Dream a sweet little dream with me"
