Everyone has heard the expression, “If the shoe fits, wear it!”
But, what if the shoe doesn’t fit?
Well, I say, “you adjust it to make it fit!” In terms of cookie cutters, you may not always have the exact shape that you need to make a particular cookie. Don’t worry! You can always adjust shapes to make them work for you. For example, I knew that I wanted to do a leprechaun foot as part of the St. Patrick’s Day collection in my last post. But, the closest thing that I had to a shoe, was this Santa boot.
No problem! I used the boot cookie cutter to cut the initial shape, and then I trimmed it.
That gave me more of the shape that I was looking for, a shoe with a sock in it. Then, I outlined my desired picture onto the cookie.
Then I flooded it… there you go, I made the shoe fit, and you can too! 🙂
