I had been wanting to buy the Crop-A-Dile for a while, the only thing that had persuaded me from getting it was that the tool was in PINK. No offense to all you pink lovers out there- I myself like the color pink, just not on everything. Then, I found this baby in this great funky color! Loved it! I knew then, that nothing was stopping me from getting this great product. It comes in this great carrying case and it also comes with 400 eyelets! How cool is that?!?!? I've never used eyelets before because when I've gone shopping for eyelet setters I always find these kits with hammers and setting mats, so that you won't ruin your furniture---SCARY!!! I found this great product and it sets the hole and the eyelet all with one tool, no hammers and no messing up your workspace!!! It's so easy to use and it comes with a guide for eyelet sizes and tools. EASY!!! I loved this tool when I first heard about it and NOW that I OWN it in such a bright fun color makes me even more happy!!!!
i had no idea i NEEDED this tool until i got one. it has really amazed me at how easy it is to use. it did initially feel a little bulky in my hand, but, after a dozen or so punches/eyelets, i quickly got a handle on it!
i originally thought people were exaggerating when they said that the tool sliced through most anything like butter. But, once I unwrapped mine, it REALLY DOES!!! When it comes to putting in eyelets, super easy. A slight squeeze and there they are.
the case and 400 eyelets are a very nice addition to this tool! The case creates a space for the tool that not only protects the tool, but makes it easier to store in a tote or tool caddy since it cant snag on anything. The eyelets are nice, but they’re nothing to write home about. 8 different colors/finishes in 3/16” size. A nice start to an eyelet collection if you already haven’t gone whole hog into that already.
Over all, tool and case, this was a good purchase for me and my scrap-habbit!
Veteran scrappers who have lived without this ingenious tool will agree with me when I say it's a basic for scrapbooking success and professional-looking projects. I used to have major stress when it came to setting eyelets on my nearly finished layouts. My nerves could hardly handle the possibility of my eyelets not setting properly and the noise of my hammering. I ALWAYS get a beautifully set eyelet with the Crop-A-Dile and have set eyelets in album covers, clear plastic and metal pieces. To have it come in green is just the best. The tool can't reach all areas of your layout so don't get rid of your anywhere punch, yet.

This tool has come in handy! I was always interested in the Crop-A-Dile, but never purchased because I wasn't sure it would be worth the price. Well, I can say that it has definitly been worth the price. Now when I make altered CDS and altered tin boxes I can embellish them properly. The Crop-a-Dile will punch a hole right through CDS & aluminum. It also punches holes through leather and 3 mm thick chipboard like the BAZZILL chipboard pieces.
This set here is nice becuase you get the handy container to store the Crop-A-Dile unit plus you get 400 eyelets.
I would recommend this to a friend or fellow craft maker.
This is one of those tools I thought was not a necessity. But, since I've bought it, it is one of the first tools I reach for. Out of curiosity I wanted to see if it would punch a hole in one of the Prima pencil holders I purchase and it did with such ease even my hubby was impressed. I love the guides on it as it lets you punch even holes and takes a lot of the guess work out of it. I'm soo glad I bought this tool!
