Orange zest substitution....

Hello!
I'm making my grandma's cut-out cookies, which calls for 2 tablespoons orange zest. The problem is, I have an orange, but no way of making *zest* - my grater is kaput. So - can I substitute orange juice for zest? And if I do, should I adjust the amount?

Or, alternately, is there any way to make zest using a knife or other household object that's *not* a grater?

Thanks!

ETA: Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone, i've got a plan! :)
