    Would anyone have a good source for paper rivets? Preferably brass ones that aren’t so tight that the two pieces of paper can turn?

    I’ve been getting mine from Paper Source – http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/color/Eyelets/2904.012/702.html.I don’t know about tightness – I hammer mine down tight for book binding purposes, and don’t want anything turning, but they seem high enough to stay loose for turning paper.But they don’t have brass, which I’m also looking for. I thought “Metallic Gold” would be close, but it’s a painted dark yellow, and not very metallic. Anyone else have a source for brass?

    That’s helpful! I’m glad to know they’re called eyelets, too. 🙂 So you just whack them with a hammer?Here are some more colored ones . . .http://www.eyeletoutlet.com/round-eyelets.html

    Oh, fantastic! Thanks for the link.You’ll need to use an Eyelet Setter – http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/item/Paper-Source-Eyelet-…. Put the eyelet/rivet in place, then put the eyelet setter on the rounded side, and gently tap the back of the setter tool with a hammer a few times, until you get the thickness you need. (no need to whack!) Hammer it on a hard surface (I use a small 1″ thick steel plate).I just noticed – the site you linked has setters, too.
