Hmmmm...not only is this completely fantastic - I think I may have just gotten the best partner ever for the vices swap! My question - anything special you did to compensate for the lumpy lid? (I've been saving those small tins for no particular reason other than I can't bear to throw them out.)
No no..I have the best partner! To answer your question, for some of them I just used very stiff paper, on others I glued a thick piece of card stock with a window cut out for the letters to stick through, and another solid piece glued on top. Someone here recommended a thin layer of poly clay on top, which I haven't tried, but I think it would also help make the edges sharper, and easier to cover with paper.
