I bought grommets to add an embellishment on this tag thingie for our invites, and I must have stood in the grommet aisle at Hobby Lobby for a good half hour trying to figure out how the grommet stayed on the paper if there was only one piece. Buuuuuuut I couldn’t resist, so I took it home and used it with my Crop O Dile which I received as a Christmas present but hadn’t used yet. AND I TOTALLY GET IT NOW. I didn’t realize that the Crop O Dile’s job was to “smoosh” the end of the grommet when you close the handle thus making it stay on the paper.
I’m hopeless. 🙂

I’ve been working at Hobby Lobby for over 2 years…it took me almost a 1 1/2 years to figure it out myself 🙂

Maybe I should get one of these because I bought the little hammer/setting tool thing and it SUCKS! I hate it! I need to do grommets on my programs, so I’ll have to pop over to Michaels today and check them out.

The crop o dile is super fast and easy. I think they range from about $20-$30, but probably totally worth the saving in time and frustration! 🙂

I ended up not using grommets. They do make backs for them, but I could never find them. My programs were 5 pages thick, and the grommets were not long enough, you could pull the back page off when they were grommeted. So I went with brads instead.
Love the look of them though!

Brads are a good substitute though! Speaking of grommets, does anyone know where I could find large grommets like for making curtains? I’m trying to find about 40 of them, and they are so astronomically expensive! I’m going to put a post on the classifieds for looking for them, but if you gals have any idea, shout out. 🙂

Hardware stores may have them cheaper than craft/sewing stores. I have bought them in the past and it seems like that’s where I got them.
