We're now just 44 sleeps away until Christmas, and I'm sure many of us have already got to preparing for the special occasion.
It's a given that a lot of us will now be dusting off the cookie cutters no doubt to bake some festive-themed goods for friends and family, but not many people actually know how such kitchen items are even made.
People have since been left in shock after discovering the process and, heads up, it's not what you'd expect. Check it out:
The informative video reveals how a small, family-run cookie cutter business makes their products.
Cookie cutter company Off The Beaten Path’s video has left people’s jaws on the floor and, after just a few seconds into the footage, you’ll surely now understand why.
Needless to say it’s a particularly busy time of year for the company, and now that you've seen the fascinating footage, you’ll likely never look at Christmas tree-shaped cookies in the same way ever again.
Basically, the first step is to make the cookie cutter coils, which are tin strips rolled into a ring using special machinery.
Then, the special machines that are seen shaping the cookie cutters do so by applying pressure to the circular tin strips, while they’re pushed against a metal shape mould.
Once the cookie cutters have been shaped, they’re welded before being packaged up to be sent to budding bakers.
How cool is that?
In other Yuletide prep news, one woman has shared an easy way to wrap gifts that don’t come in a box.
She used a piece of cardboard, tape, scissors and, you guessed it, wrapping paper to show how quick it can be to wrap.
Tracie begins by placing the electric whisk on the piece of cardboard and cutting a piece to that matches the size of the base of the appliance.
She then uses this piece of cardboard to measure and cut how much wrapping paper she needs.
The next step sees Tracie fold the ends of the wrapping paper to the centre and taping the ends in place to create what looks like a sleeve, before folding the bottom half up.
She then folds the corners and tapes the bottom part of the sleeve to create a flat bottom for the electric whisk to sit on top of the piece of cardboard from earlier.
For the final step, Tracie places the electric sleeve inside the wrapping paper and folds and tapes the corners and the top opening.
Voila! A perfectly wrapped electric whisk.
