adding eyelets to the book

Now that I have printed the entire book, I am working on putting it together. I have completed ironing together each page. Now I am putting the pages together with eyelets, or brackets. so I can bind the pages together.

When I started this project, I thought that I would glue or sew the pages together. As I worked on it, I saw these eyelets or brackets at the store. I thought they would be perfect for putting the pages together since the pages are cloth. First I measured the area marking were I wanted to put the eyelet. See image 1. Then I cut holes in the cloth with the scissors. This has to be done carefully or it will cause runs in the cloth, and it looks like a crease in the cloth that didn’t get ink. See image 2. Next punch the eyelets through the cloth. See image 3. Then take a hammer and close the eyelet with the eyelet tool that kinda looks like a nail. See image 4. The top eyelet is closed and I am about ready to close the second.  Then the page is ready to lace together.
