I’m excited to announce a fun collection of Christmas cookie cutters hitting the shop today. The designs are my take on traditional Christmas characters that I think will put anyone in the Christmas spirit!

These Christmas cutter designs are now available for purchase from my shop. However, over the next few days, I plan on doing a tutorial of a few of these cookie designs in detail. So be on the lookout for those upcoming posts.

Below is a quick summary of the new Christmas cookie cutter designs, as well as a few ideas on how to package them.

New Christmas Cookie Cutters

Added to the shop are eight new cookie cutter designs!

When I asked on social media what Christmas designs people wanted to see this year, there was an overwhelming number of requests for full-body characters. So I did my best to accommodate. Available in my shop, you can find Santa, his Mrs. Claus, a Christmas elf, and a snowman.

If these full-body designs are too detailed for your taste, I’m offering simple, quicker-to-decorate, options of just their heads, as well.

The head designs are offered in a number of sizes like Large, Regular, and mini. The full-body designs are only offered in one size, but I’ll offer other options if there are requests for them.

On to the fun and most important part, the decorated cookies!

My goal for these Christmas character cookies was to not only make them festive and lovable, but to make sure they were each a sturdy shape overall. I wanted to help ensure these cookies would make it if they were shipped to friends and family as gifts.

For reference, the head cookies above are in the REGULAR size. However, the LARGE sizes will best fit in these 4″x4″ gift boxes.

Cookie Packaging Ideas

When it came to packaging, I tried to be a bit strategic with cookie sizing. Each of the full-body character cookies can fit in either a single 4″x4″ gift box, or as a duo pair in these 7″x4.25″ gift boxes.

These cookies also pair well with this icon plaque cookie cutter if you’d like to add a whimsy, personalized message to the gift set. Here are a few ideas I tried out.

Editable Gift Tags

Lastly, as a bonus alternative, I’m working with my brother at OwlHouse.Co to come up with coordinating gift tags that would look great with these cookies. These tags will be instant downloads that you can print at home. One awesome feature is these tags are also editable. You can modify the text to add a personalized message or name!

Here’s a preview of one design for the snowman, but we are working on the other tags over the next week. Stop by my brother’s shop to checkout his latest designs.

I’m working hard to getting out all the pending orders, while readying the template tutorials for these cookies. Check back later on this blog to see how I decorate Mrs. Claus and the snowman!

Happy Holidays!

  1. BTW, I meant to say how nice these designs are too!! How about a set option to buy them too instead of having to go through each design and click on each one. (Lazy, lazy I know, but that’s not really what i was thinking of either, not laziness, it’s called temptation and impulse to buy them all.) Just an idea!

    1. I’ll give that some thought. However, having them all as separate items really helps me out when I pack and verify the orders. Thanks, Holly!

  2. I agree I would buy them along this many designs and custom creations..go for it!!!!!

  3. Wonderful work, as always! I ordered mine! 😊

  4. I love the designs and that you’ve thought of everything from the design to packaging! Can’t wait until the store reopens!

  5. Having the box sizes and samples to see make this so easy – especially your attention to sturdy cookies ! Love these cute designs :)

  6. Just when I think I have all Christmas cutters I could ever need you come out with adorable cutters in your signature style. I love them all! Great work as always Mike.

  7. Hi Mike!

    I think your cookies and blog are nothing short of phenomenal!! I am soon sad you don’t sell your masterpieces,but the tutorials are great!
