You can make any shape you want.
This project in essence is like quantum physics; in theory, it's rather self evident, but in practice it's a whole other story.
I tried this with a can of soda first; the can won't bend easily, and the blood makes such a mess.
The fondant cupcakes were made with the cookie cutters I made that spawned this confusing explanation.
Last picture is my dog Canela, who likes to eat anything that rolls off the table, that's why she's so fat.

First, pick the image you want to render into cookie cutter form. The easier the outline, the better.
I picked this cheeky picture of Kuroneko Sama.
Keep in mind that, the bigger the picture is, the easier it will be to outline.
Also, if it's the first time you try this, try to use an easy shape to start with. I did some stars and hearts before I underwent this wretched cat.
Cut two rectangles of pan big enough to fit your image and stample them together.
If you don't have faith in your scissors, then you can cut thru one rectangle at a time, then stample it to the second one and repeat.
My blalant disregard for my scissors' well-being allows me to do both layers at once.
To get rid of the bumps and wrinkles, I used the handle of my scissors and applied pressure to the metal. (Sort of rub it up and down the length of the strip of metal)
It will curl slighty as you work it, but it doesn't matter, we'll be bending it anyways.
You could use a rolling pin too; I haven't tried it, but theoretically it would work.
This is the tricky part: You have to carefully bend the strip around your image, try to get all the little bends as best as you can.
Focus on the bottom edge only, since it will be the one doing the cutting.
I won't lie to you, this part is a headache. I actually threw it away and went to watch TV until I regained my patience.
