An Eyelet for an Eyelet

I’m one of those card crafters who purchased her first order of eyelets and abandoned them like a hot potato. I do many of my projects late at night (I’ll bet there are many of you out there that can relate) and the pounding of the tools to set eyelets did not fit well into my family’s sleep patterns.  But I adore the look of them and you don’t have to finagle any itty bitty "legs" on the backside as you often do with brads.

The Crop-A-Dile changed all that.  I can use large or small eyelets (plus snaps) on so many projects to give that added jazz.  A couple of SU’s Jumbo Eyelets (Pewter) were just what was needed to give balance to this simple card.  Silently.  Effortlessly.  I also love using the ticket corner punch and adding corner eyelets to accentuate the resulting shape.  Quick.  Easy. 

So consider me now an eyelet goddess . . . the queen of the crop (a-dile).

  1. Wow you know I think that’s exactly what I did when I first got into card making. I was so enthralled by eyelets that I bought a whole bunch in all kinds of colors… and now here I am two years later with a bunch of eyelets in all kinds of colors that I never use! 🙂 I’ve thought about getting the Cropadile. My friend got one for Christmas this year so I’m going to try hers out before I invest 🙂
