Question paint can/lunch tin instructions..lid?

Ok, y'all. I've read all the paint can threads till I'm blue in the face! And I can't for the life of me really get it.
Paint Cans
1. How do you get the top to be a perfect circle?
2. Which punch can you use to get the holes for the handles?
3. Which works best--modge podge or sticky strip?

Lunch tin
1. How do you really, step-by-step get the holes for the handles? I have tried the copy paper template, exacto knife, etc., adn I can't get them to be flush.
2. What size punch do you use to go around the latch on the front of the tin? I can't get that to slip underneath so I wouldn't have to cut & I can't get that cut perfect either. If I get one side, the other side is so way off, it looks horrible.

Please be as specific as possible--I'm a visual learner. And I've read every thread several times--I think I need one place to look, with step by step help. I do hope someone has patience enough for me!!
Thanks so much!
Ariel

I used the large SU circle punch to punch a 1/2 circle on two different patterned papers. When you glue them on, they create the full hole.

I used sticky strip & it worked great! I haven't tried Mod Podge.

Again I used the large SU circle punch to punch a 1/2 circle to fit around the latch. It's not perfect because of course it isn't exactly the same shape, but I like it because it looks even.

Good luck!!

Paint cans: I use the Coluzzle for the lid. For the bump outs on the handle, I pretty much eyeball it. Because one piece of paper doesn't fit around the entire can, I measure half way around the can & cut my paper accordingly. Then I measure down from the lip to the bump outs and that is where I put the top edge of my circle punch and punch a half circle from the paper for the bump out. Repeat for the other half and the other side. I don't worry too much about perfection as I add ribbon, fiber, fabric strips on the wire handle that help hide any imperfections at the cutouts.

Lunch tins: Not much help here as I lay the paper over the latch/handle and lightly sketch the area to be cut out. I always cut less than I think...that way I can trim it out as I go for the best fit. Kind of the "hair cut" philosophy.

I've used the tape on a paint can. It works well, but doesn't stand up to a lot of use. Decoupage works great & holds up to regular use.

HTH!
