Buying mini cookie cutters for making things like homemade goldfish or other bite-size treats can get expensive. Luckily, you can use an empty, clean soda can to make your own shapes following the steps on The DIY Home Sweet Home Project blog.
Here's how you do it:
1. Thoroughly wash the can and let it air dry.
2. Cut off the top and bottom of the can. Then cut the can vertically and flatten it out into one strip.
3. Cut the flattened can into smaller strips, about 1-inch wide.
4. Bend your strips into the shape that you want for you cookie cutter, then glue or tape the ends together.
They might not be the sturdiest cookie cutters, but just think of all the fun shapes you can make.
Do you have a fun way to use an every day item?
