I took some pictures last time I used my Crop-A-Dile to show off how easy it really is.
Click on more if you don’t know how to use it. It’s such an awesome tool. Even my boys were impressed!
Setting an eyelet with the Crop-a-dile (COD):
Place your cardstock in between one of the two outer hole punches. The smaller one is for 1/8″ holes, the bigger one for 3/16″. Press the punch down a little so you can see where it will punch, center your cardstock directly under it and press the handle together.
In the picture I show the 3/16″ hole punch.
Add your eyelet.
To set your eyelet you will need the front part of this tool.
For small eyelets , set the top to C and the base to 3.
For bigger eyelets, set your top part to A, the base to 2.
Place your paper with the eyelet in between top and bottom, so that the top of the eyelet is facing the little nob (top of COD) and the bottom of the eyelet is center with the outward curved base.
Press your handles together to set the eyelet.
Dry Embossing with the Crop-a-dile
For dry embossing, set your top to A, your bottom to 2.
To keep a straight line when adding more then one circle, I line up the top of the black square with the layer I want to put the circles next to, and the right side of the black square with the beginning of my layer.
Press handle together. Your first dry embossed circle is done.
Line up the right of your black square right next to your first dry embossed circle, the top of the square with the end of the layer and press down to make your second circle.
Continue to add circles if wanted.
