Suncatcher Craft Eyes color styles

These are some photo videos of the different color styles of my craft eyes:  Opaque, Shimmer, Translucent, and Glitter.  I’ve ordered a professional camera, so future photos should be much better quality!



How to attach metal washers to craft eyes

This quick tutorial will show you how to attach metal washers to craft eyes.  All 3 metal washer styles (at least for Suncatcher Craft Eyes) attach the same way.

These photos show how the washers go on 9mm, 10.5mm, 12mm, 15mm, 18mm, 20mm, and 24mm craft eyes:20150921_083223 20150921_083232  20150921_083457

These photos show how the metal washers attach for 30mm craft eyes:

These photos show how the washer attaches on 4.5mm and 6mm craft eyes:

The metal washers are put on with the concave (indented) side toward the eye.  You will see that the prongs of the washer are slightly bent outward on one side, and that is the side that goes away from the eye.  As the washer slides along the stem, the little prongs will bend outward more and grip onto the stem, holding the eye securely.

Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions about attaching washers to your craft eyes.

Happy Crafting!
