Round all four corners of each piece with the small Corner Rounder punch. Additional trimming may be necessary to fit corner well. Use Sticky Strip, once again, to adhere these pieces onto the top and bottom of the Altoid tin, being sure to place sufficient adhesive at the corners for durability. 4.
