Merry And Bright Christmas Tags

OK…. so I lied, I had a few HobbyCraft foil stickers still left over from the cards I made the other day ……
Bright Christmas Tags, Foil Christmas Stickers…… because I also wanted to make tags, using the Christmassy scraps  I have  left over from years past.  The foil stickers are very bright and I wanted the rest of the tags to reflect that.
Bright Christmas Tags, Scallop Punch TagsEach tag is 2.5 ins square and I have used a scalloped and plain circle punch to cut the mat and layering for the sticker and then lots and lots of faux stitching that eventually gave my fingers cramp!
Modern Bright Red White and Green Christmas Tags, faux Stitching. foil christmas stickersI decided to make the tags look really “proper” by using my Cropodile to set an eyelet in the corner of each tag …….. but now ……. I bought some Woodware (I think)  3/16 eyelets but they just do not “set” half as well as the original ones that I got with said Cropodile, (the barrel of the eyelet seems longer and a tint bit thicker???)……. can anyone recommend any eyelets that might set any better without costing an arm and a leg????????
