So, I got myself some eyelets, but couldn't find an eyelet setter sold on it's own - all of them came with kits, and I didn't like the colors of the eyelets in the kit. So, I found this 3-pack of eyelet setters at Walmart. They have a spring in the middle, and one end is a hole puncher, and the other end is the setter.
I cannot get the eyelets to set right. The backside just smooshes and doesn't connect to the paper. I'm trying to decide if the eyelet setters are just junk, or if it's the surface I'm using. I don't have a craft mat yet, so I tried using a cutting board to protect my table, and also a magazine. The eyelets are still smooshing.
Do you think this is because I'm not using a craft mat, or do you think I need to chuck the eyelet setters?
