Learn how-to make your own cookie cutters with a 3D printing pen in #TechniqueTuesday and then try them out with mini gingerbread houses!
Sketch or print out the designs you'd like for your cookie cutters.
Cover the design with a thin sheet of plastic and heat up your 3D printing pen. Trace the outline of your design.
Trace around the outside of the design, making your cutter a little thicket.
Now continue tracing on top of the design, making it deeper.
Once you've reached the desired depth, remove from the plastic and use a small pair of scissors to snip off any wispy bits of plastic.
Use a hot glue gun to stick your cutter shape back onto the plastic sheet.
Cut around the outline of the shape with scissors.
Your cutters and now ready to use. I recommend trying them out with sugar dough or gingerbread!
