I sound a bit stupid right now, had first day of school and I'm sooo tired...
oh, and it was kinda suiting how late your package was (even though I still think the post office is stupid..), 'cause it's my birthday today, so your package was like a one-day-early birthday present! Grin

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Melladh!!!!!!!!!! Grin

thank you! Cheesy

oh, and I forgot to add: This is what I bought the foam for in the first place, sort of:

made these for the discworld swap
I figured that most coasters have a foam bottom to make them not slide, so why not make foam stencils and glue to the bottom of glass coasters Smiley Only now I have a LOAD of foam and no glass coasters Roll Eyes (they're expensive, and it's no use only making two..)

I used a common "brytbladskniv", um directly translated that's "break blade knife"... I guess I can compare it to an exacto knife. Well, something like this

I just taped the stencil on top of the foam, and started cutting. Librarian one (orange) was a bit of a pain, but the death one was a piece of cake. The foam isn't all that thick, and the knife is VERY sharp Wink The smallest details were hard though, 'cause the knife is sort of triangular, you know, with a point.. so it'd cut wider closest to me, and almost nothing at the bottom Roll Eyes But I worked it out.

well, I live in sweden, and here they sell them at Panduro.. Roll Eyes
Any place that'll have glass-painting supplies should have them, but you can even ask a glass cutter to custom make them, or frame mounter person thingy worker erhm (english..center..of brain.. breaking down..). If they're friendly ones, they'll give you a good price. Smiley

Batteries! Weee!

So, as I promised - an update. Here are the tags that I didn't have a proper pic of


And the glowies!

As you might see, it would seem I have colorful pixies in the size of a pixel. Or the lense on the camera is dusty. Whichever you wish.

The daylight photo of the fab coasters are on this post
