Eyelets are small metal circles which things can be laced through (such as a pair of shoes). As a scrapbooking technique, eyelets are used to “rivet” components onto a page, such as cardstock. Eyelets should be used only in a scrapbooking system that has good page protectors. Choose eyelets that will not rust and, if possible, place them so that they will not be facing a photo on the opposite page. With any metal components, weight, rust and sharpness (sharp metal edges WILL scratch photos and poke holes in cardstock) should be considered. This scrapbook technique can be a unique way to add texture to your pages.
