jam pot covers when the proper lids have warped

I bought some nice jars for making Xmas present chutney with the children (they have designed festive labels with wrestler motif - so not quite as Stepford as it sounds) from IKEA. I sterilised the jars in the oven no problem, but when I boiled the lids to sterilise them, they warped (plastic with some sort of metal trim) so I can't use them...

... or can I?

Is there something to seal the jars that can be done that is just as hygienic as the lids?

thanks for any advice you can give...

Do you have jam covers?

Wet the cellophane disc and put it over the top of the chutney then secure it on with a rubber band. They dry very tightly.

thanks Saorachd, I've just checked Lakeland, and spoken to their helpful and knowledgable customer service, this seems just the ticket - and a very cheap solution.

thanks so much, panic over...
