You should be able to find the template on Provocraft's website. However I warn you that each tin is a little different. This is what I do. I cut a piece of scrap paper to the lid size, then cut a long slit in the middle that I can slide over the handle. I then press it around the hardware to get a general idea of where to cut the holes. Then I use that as a template. Once you get it cut you can put it on and trim as needed with a sharp Xacto knife. Use a thin coat of modgepodge on your tin then apply your paper. Smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles quickly. Once that is completely dry, add a coat of modgepodge over the paper. It makes it a little more durable. I've done several of these and each one turns out better than the last. I think it's just practice. Hope this helps.
Here's a couple that I did.....
