For sanding (besides the rarely-used sandpaper) I use emery boards.  Since they appear to be die-cut, they often have one side that has raised edges - I avoid using that side.
Recently, I found small foam blocks covered with grit at my local home improvement store.  I use the one labeled 320 grit.  I think they are made by 3M.

George,

Great suggestion and yes I use the emery boards also...found a package at the Dollar Store that had approximately 35 boards from large to small, with varying grits.  Colors were Black for the large, Rust/orange for the medium and creme color for the small. Very handy indeed.  I've used the foam block and they work well on the rounded surfaces also.

I use the thick double-sided foam ones that I get at the grocery store and Walgreens.  They can be found in various grits.  The edges don't bend up like the emery boards.  I use them constantly, even to sand off tisssue overage when covering.

Alittle pricey, but as I understand it, they dont wear out.
