Crafts in the Ozarks reflect a wide range of creative skills. Kay Johnson, of Monett, brought samples of homemade cookie cutters from the collection of Ann Anthony, of Bothell, Wash., for exhibit at the Monett Museum.

Johnson is curator of the National Cookie Cutter Historical Museum in Joplin. Anthony made her own cookie cutters from jar lids, backs of tin cans, strips of metal Span cans, corks, spools and other materials found around the house.

A rare biscuit cutter used as a promotional item by the Egg Baking Powder Company in the early 1900s with a handle made of a solid metal egg is also on display.

Johnson will be at the Monett Museum at 705 E. Broadway from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday to answer questions and share insights into the function and design of the unusual display.
