One of my favourite elements of Everything Alice was the tutorial on DIY cookie cutters. Many a time have I cooed over pretty cookies, wishing that I had the appropriately shaped cutters to recreate them. Now I just raid my collection of cleaned, disposable tin trays (M&S ready-meal trays are of an ideal quality!) and create a cutter of my own!
