    Eyelets are small metal circles which things can be laced through (such as a pair of shoes). As a scrapbooking technique, eyelets are used to “rivet” components onto a page, such as cardstock. Eyelets should be used only in a scrapbooking system that has good page protectors. Choose eyelets that will not rust and, if possible, place them so that they will not be facing a photo on the opposite page. With any metal components, weight, rust and sharpness (sharp metal edges WILL scratch photos and poke holes in cardstock) should be considered. This scrapbook technique can be a unique way to add texture to your pages.

    There are many tools to "set" eyelets. The one I prefer is the Crop-i-dile. Lisa

    The cropodile is definitely my fav tool. I love using eyelets, but find I lean toward using brads whenever possible. I think that is partly because it is easier, and partly because I like the looks, unless you are threading something through it.

    I with Lynn & Lisa on the Crop-a-dile. It's a great tool that's easy to use. I can be used to attach almost anything to your page but like Lynn, I perfer brads. Brads are much easier to use & come in many more styles/shapes than I have found with brads.

    While looking thru the Paper Wishes catalog the other day, I noticed the Brad Eyelets. They install easily like a brad, but they look like an eyelet, so if you want to put fibers or something thru it, you can do that. It's quite a nice idea! Sue
