We still use those...lol

I made them for a swap years and years ago...I just created my own template that could hold 1 or 2 cds or other thin stuff. You could definitely use the closure on other items. I used floss (the one for cross-stitch), since it was before baker's twine became a thing...lol. I don't think I had the Japanese drill yet, but I did use the hammer/setter to add the eyelets. Pretty much the same concept as in the video, except I attached the floss by tying it around the top eyelet first, then setting it...not sure if that makes sense.

the sandwich was: eyelet, floss (knotted around eyelet), top flap - then set eyelet (this would hold the floss in place)

I would also add another piece of punched out cardstock to the backside of the eyelet to keep it from scratching whatever was placed inside.
