Lost foam corner gaskets for window nailing fins (Marvin Integrity)

My new windows have those flip up nailing fins along all four sides, which means there is a gap in each corner. To cover this gap, Marvin bundles these little foam corner gaskets that you plop in after the window is nailed in. Well, I'm short one of these guys and can't wait for a replacement to be shipped. I'm thinking of just using extra flashing tape to seal the corner and then flash as normal. Anyone have any better suggestions?

You are going to put on 4" wide sticky window tape on the nailing flange anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much about the corners.
