Honestly, It looks a little clumpy. I think you could have easily made this out of transparent plastic sheets. Like acrylic I think is what it is. I know somewhere you can buy them in the colors you need. Then just cut the shape out. But for the way you did it, It's still actually pretty good.

I believe an exacto knife should do the trick. And you can get them in veried sized. Go for the thinner ones

Well dremels are usually for detailing..but I guess that would still work lol But yea, if you get the real thin stuff the exacto should do.
