You are purchasing a finished cookie cutter of this adorable lion. It has an indentation for the face which makes decorating easy!! My cookie cutters are very well made and sturdy. The have a wide rim on the top so you can push them easily into cookie dough as well as a double cut wall to prevent splitting. You can throw these cutters in your cookie cutter bin and don't need to worry about damage. Happy Cookie Making!!
