Welcome back to another feature of Relish the Embellish! This week what should we cover? Not brads or ribbon – done that. How about…. EYELETS! (i’ll be honest I have never used them) OH BTW guess what? Coming up next week most likely we are going to have the owner or manager of EYELET OUTLET do an interview covering how and why she broke into the scrapbooking industry!!!!!! Really excited!!! SO if any of you are interested like me in getting involved in the scrapbooking industry – then STAY TUNED!!!!
Eyelets are a popular scrapbooking embellishment. They can be used to punch up any scrapbook page with decoration, but they also have the practical function of fastening items onto a page. Regardless of how you intend to use eyelets, you’ll have to know how to set an eyelet before incorporating them into your scrapbook. Read the following tips to learn how to properly place an eyelet onto a scrapbook page.
Lay the self-healing mat on a flat surface.
- It’s important to choose a surface that is hard and flat to ensure that your efforts at setting the eyelet will be effective.
Place a scrapbook page directly on top of the self-healing mat. Make sure that the entire page fits over the self-healing mat.
Put the “Anywhere Hole Punch” over the area on the scrapbook page where you want your eyelet to be set.
Use the hammer to punch a hole into the scrapbook page for your eyelet.
Insert an eyelet into the newly made hole.
Bring the eyelet setter and hammer over the eyelet. Use them to tap the eyelet into place.
- Reinforcing the eyelet into the scrapbook page will ensure that the eyelet is permanently set and won’t move at a later time.
