First of all, you have to determine the size of the cutter. The size must not be very large, nor very small. However, make sure it fits your baking tray, because you will be placing cut dough pieces on it. Take all the measurements before cutting the copper carefully.
After taking all the necessary measurements, you have to cut the copper with the help of tin snips. It is extremely important for you to sand the edges of the copper after cutting. Otherwise, your fingers may get hurt by its sharp edges.
Now, you have to bend the sides of the copper after cutting it. Take the chain nose pliers and bend the copper accordingly. It is extremely important for you to keep gloves on for protection. After that, take the round bending tool and bend the strip. You can also use a tube of liquid paper to bend it according to the measurements.
You have to bend the copper with the help of the chain nose pliers until it takes the shape of a dog bone. Just make sure the ends of the copper strips are overlapping with each other. This way, you can easily apply the glue to attach them properly.
Before applying glue to attach the strips, you must work on the edges with sandpaper so that they stick together properly. After applying glue, place the cookie cutter aside for around one day and let the glue dry.
