Hi Brittany!

You have to have an eyelet setter of some sort. Basically you pound a hole the size of your eyelet with the punching tool/hammer. You have to be doing this on a hard surface (a mat should be included with the tools). Stick the eyelet in then you use the other tool and hammer it into the eyelet to basically squish the metal bracket type things to your page.

That's the "old fashioned" method. There's other new tools like the "Silent Setter" you can use but I just use the oldie methods. I don't use eyelets much...

HTH!
