Creative Ways to Use Cookie Cutters #4: Tissue Paper Art


Have you thought of other creative ways to use cookie cutters? Today we will look at how to make tissue paper art using cookie cutters. A flower cookie cutter lends itself well to being shaped into a flower. I just cut out a stack of 4 hot pink flower shapes, stabbed a pipe cleaner through it, and fluffed the petals. That’s it. The daffodil was formed out of two pieces of yellow tissue paper, one flat and the other one pointing outwards. I got a lid of a coke bottle and put it into the middle of the daffodil, folding the tissue paper into a cup. Super easy.

If you have other shapes of cookie cutters, you can make a tissue paper stained glass window. Start with a light color of tissue paper, like light pink, peach, or yellow. Cut the large sheet of tissue paper into a vertical rectangle with a pointed top, like a cathedral window. Tape the tissue paper to the window. Then use your cookie cutter as a stencil to make colorful shapes to glue onto the larger piece of tissue paper. This is especially beautiful with a maple leaf cookie cutter with orange, red, and brown tissue paper leaves against a yellow background. Enjoy your stained glass window.

    That’s a great way to get some use out of them ‘out of season’. Mine don’t get used except before Christmas

      Lots of people only bake cookies at Christmastime. What they don’t realize is that there are lots of ways to use a cookie cutter!

    The only way I used cookie cutters when my son was young (besides making cookies) was to make scented dough and we would cut them into Christmas tree ornaments. I never thought of a flower or a stained glass like object. Nice creativity!

      My kids have made Christmas tree ornaments with cookie cutters on clay. You have to pierce the tops before they dry, then paint them. They came out great!
