  • Reply xMiri May 27, 2017 at 6:27 am

    Ann, did your tile cap have an u-shape? I'm doing this diy right now and I have an u-shape tile cap. However, I'm wondering how the bottom of the letter will be in place if your slot is facing the other way. (I hope you understand) because your slots have openings at one side. The other side is flat, how will the letters stay in place? Should my letter be super tight between the slots?

    You could have bought hard plastic and cut it instead of destroying Erics sleeves for Magic the Gathering, sleeves for playing cards are more expensive than you buying a whole sheet that's similar matterial to them. Smh

    You should use white led lights and not yellow ones.
    Maybe its just my preference but I despise yellow lights
