Eyelet Setting Know How
We have been blown away in the last few months by the ease and success of the Provocraft Silent Eyelet Setter and with new stocks arriving next week we thought that it was time to give this great setter the review it deserves.
The eyelet setter comes in a soft zip locked carry case and apart from the main piece “the handle”, you will find 3 hole punch heads and 3 setter heads for the following eyelet sizes: 1/16″, 1/8″& 3/16″. Also as part of the kit you get a small eyelet mat and a free jar of eyelets! Bargain! Of course eyelets aren’t the only use for this tool. Use the hole punch heads for making holes in shrink plastic, for tags, to thread ribbon through etc etc. Because of its design, the eyelet setter can be used on projects of any size at any stage. This is great for last minute additions right in the middle of a page layout believe me! and all silently, quickly and without a fuss..
STEP 1: Depending on the size of the hole you need to make, slot your chosen punch head into the “handle”, this is easy peasy as it is magnetic!
Step 2: Place your eyelet mat under your project and using an effortless slight twisting action, press down where you want the eyelet to appear. In the sample above we are adding an eyelet to the middle of a punched out flower.
Step 3: Pop your eyelet into the hole. Pretty basic we know BUT there are still some “newbies” out there that don’t know about eyelets but this tool makes it SOOOO easy!
Step 4: Flip over your project. Wow that’s hard isn’t it!
Step 5: Change the punch head for the setter head of the same size. The 3 different sizes are etched on the side of each punch and setter head. Alternatively if you keep your setter stored in its pack, you can write the size for each above it. This makes quick reference as you can pull out the punch and matching setter head at the same time.
Step 6: Voila, flip over and your project is finished!! This will be our last shipment of eyelet setters we get in before Christmas and they go fast! If you would like one put aside or need more info, contact us at email@example.com
