Tip: For projects that have removable inserts, such as this piece, or nay ready-made frame, having the temporary, flexible points either break or fall out can be frustrating, a staple gun works great to refit items into their original housing. Be sure to hold the gun ½" (12mm) away from the surface when shooting. Or staple will go all the way in.
