Cropodile

Postby Carolyn » Sat Feb 25, 2012 5:45 pm

Here is something I have had for years, and still find it so easy to use. Do you have one? Just dusted down the eyelets to add to a card and remember faffing about with a hammer etc, and this is just a breeze

I did add some info to the page years ago:

I often use mine. Not so much the eyelets though.
If you don't know what to do with new stuff, hide it until you do!

I use mine quite a bit for punching holes - haven't used eyelets for a while ... perhaps I should because I've got loads of them.

Used mine for eyelets the other week. Hadn't used eyelets for ages. Remember when we used to always use them, that & fibres.

I use mine a lot both for punching holes and for eyelets. Its a tool that will last a lifetime.

I also have the WMK Cropodile corner punches. They are so sturdy and will cut any thickness up to chipboard. They will last me a lifetime.

this is an old thread, but interesting to see if anyone still uses eyelets. I actually got mine out the other day, and put some eyelets in a 'mans' card

I must admit once I had used them - thought they looked nice....these things get put in the cupboard and forgotten about.
