Cookie Cutter Rework

Ever really need something specific, that you know you've seen a million times in the stores... but once you go to buy it, you can't find it anywhere?

That was me with mini leaf shaped cookie cutters.

I needed some for Thanksgiving. But wouldn't you know it- couldn't find them anywhere.

Yesterday I looked in the last place I could think of that might have them. A little old fashioned general store that carries a small selection of cutters. 

When they didn't have them either I resigned myself to the fact that I wasn't going to have them. 
But just as I was leaving I saw a small basket full of random mini cutters. I searched it for leaves-to no avail- but did find two shapes (what I think are supposed to be an apple and a stocking) that I thought could be made into leaf shapes. So in a last ditch effort I bought them. 

One pair of needle nose pliers and a few four-letter words later, I have something resembling leaf shapes.

They are wonky looking for sure. But I tried them last night and they worked like a charm. Phew!

If you celebrate Thanksgiving I hope you have a Happy Turkey Day!
