DIY wedding cookie cutters
Looking for wedding cookie cutters but can’t find exactly what you want? We made templates so you can make your own wedding cookie cutters.
Get started with our three printables—they’re perfect for a bridal shower. Use ordinary scissors to cut strips of craft metal that are flexible and can easily be shaped. Make curves or sharp edges with the help of a marker and needle-nose pliers.
The edges can be sharp so we suggest dipping them in plastic coating as a final step. You’ll have to wait a bit longer for them to dry but they’ll be more user-friendly.

- Print out template, lay it on your work surface then follow the outline to shape the metal. For rounded areas, wrap around a thick or thin marker. For edges or angles that require a sharp fold, simply pinch with needle-nose pliers.
- Once you’ve completed the outline, leave half an inch for overlap. Snip off the excess metal then glue the two pieces together with industrial-strength glue. Hold in place with binder clips and allow it to dry for at least 3 hours if planning to dip the top edge into rubber coating.
- Let dry overnight and hand wash before using.
