Do you have a cookie cutter that you just don't see the way it is 'meant to be'?
Well, I recently got this cutter from Cheap Cookie Cutters - you can find it here. They call it a mail box cutter, that's fine and dandy, but all I kept seeing was an elephant.....from behind.
and then I saw him in long grass...
and then all muddy....
But then I started seeing other things in that humble mail box cutter.
First thing that came to mind was a birdhouse. No surprise really as I practically live on Montreal Confections YouTube channel and recently watched this tutorial. Coupled with the fact I have a new airbrush I really wanted to try the wood grain technique she shows in the video. I loved how it turned out.
Next idea that came to me was a bit 'geeky' in the form of R2-D2 from Star Wars.
He was inspired in part by this post from Sugarbelle, but I thought to add his legs (?) because of the shape of the cutter.
I think he's a bit cute.
And finally (for now) I saw I car in that mail box cutter, rear view here
but you could easily make it front view as well.
Thanks for stopping by,
