Using big grommets is almost impossible without this kit. The key is the hole punchers! Have you ever tried to put a big neat hole in chipboard or cardboard? These punches make this a snap. Using a hammer and backing your cardboard with the self healing mat, strike the punch and presto--you're in business. These grommets are perfect for albums and tying big ribbons through the grommets on gatefold albums.
The Making Memories Grommet kit is a great tool! They sell many differnt grommet sizes an shapes to go with it, and it comes with a starter pack of Grommets.
I love the dimension that you can add by putting a grommet on a Layout or Card and putting Patterned Paper underneath it! I have even used the grommet setter for cloth bags to dress it up!
I love the look of grommets on a page but they were so hard to get perfect. Until I found this kit. It's essential. I love how easy the punches work and how clean they cut. Because you have to use a hammer, I would suggest you use a good self healing mat and not the one it comes with. It will leave marks on the little mat. But other than that, it's a great kit!
