Having trouble to visualize this, please post a pic (you have to cut a hole in the camera cap??)

Another tip; get a camera cap and glue a 49mm filter thread to it. Then attach the 16mm to it by the filter threads, so that it is mounted to the camera in reverse. The kit zoom works too, but a wider lens will give you more magnification mounted in reverse.

You can also cut a hole into a lens cap and glue a filter glass over the hole; that way you can protect the back of the lens from dust

Here's what it can do;
