Hi! I’m Amy from Clough’D 9 Cookies. I was absolutely thrilled when Callye asked me to do a holiday guest post on her blog. I knew I wanted to do a design that involved repurposing cookie cutters, especially since Callye was first to inspire me to use cutters in different ways. I also wanted to incorporate the woodland theme that is so trendy right now.

What better way to reach both goals than by re-purposing a bell cutter to make a cute woodland fox, with or without a scarf!

First, you will need a bell cutter. Any bell cutter will do, as long as it has a clapper. The clapper doesn’t need to be centered along the base of the bell. In fact, having both types of bells can add some variety to your platter! You’ll also need a cutter to make small triangles, like the tip of a straight tree cutter.

NOTE: If your clapper is off-center, adjust the sizes of the white section of the face. If the clapper is swinging to the right, make the left white section bigger and vise versa. Refer to the picture earlier in the post to see an example.
