Here, I gave some thought to a plain old square cutter and came up with some ways to transform it for Christmas.... Once you get started, it's easy to get carried away. And best of all... just one cutter makes all these shapes!
The key to using an unusual shape cutter is to "think outside the box" and not get caught up in the overall shape. So, not all the cookies are to be decorated with square boundaries. The snowman face and Santa's belly are cropped squares that are easily recognizable as such.
The penguin, reindeer and polar bear are just head shots of the creatures.
The North star is only a partial shape, but just enough to be recognizable and the angel is the only image shown in entirety.
The ornament cookie is a fun one with one ball going past the green background.
Any of these techniques can be used with almost any shape. Give it a try!
