If you are wanting to cut lube cookies or something soft like that, you can make one from any .50 caliber brass.

If you want to cut wad material or something tougher, then get a wad punch from

Why mess around with a cookie cutter that will do nothing but stick a pile of lube wads together on a pile and get deformed when you pick them up.
Get a 12" shallow straight walled round cake pan put it on a hot plate with a little water in it and some lube and let it simmer for a while till all lube is melted. Let it cool and lift the lube cake out of the water dry it with a paper towel and cut your wads using a loaded compressed case full of powder with a card and cut the wad with the case mouth and place a wad on the lube and seat the bullet. You will never handle a wad with your fingers.
I use 180 to 200 grams of lube depending on how thick I want the wad. I just use a wad under 1/8" to help hold back the gas so it cuts down the vertical. I wipe between shots so lube is not really necessary any way, but I see a reduction of vertical using a thin lube wad.
I stood up some wads so you can see the uniformity when you do it the way I said above.
