Party monsters were made with an assortment of cookie cutter shapes. A gingerbread man cookie cutter was used for a full-size monster, a skull cookie cutter for Frankenstein’s Bride, and basic cut squares for Frankenstein himself as well as a few of his closest monster-y friends! Leaf and pumpkin shaped treats would be a great addition too!
