After seeing a picture of some similar ninjabread men cutters by Fred & Friends on I HAD to have some. Not being one to just buy something, I thought I’d have a go at making my own using strips of 0.5mm stainless steel and a jig to bend it around.

Not being a dab hand with graphics software I twisted the arm of my friend gmjhowe to make me some outlines. The ninjas in the PDF he sent me back are pure awesome, and should be a wee bit easier to make than the shapes of the originals I got my inspiration from.
