You know how much I love a shoe-themed DIY project! Remember when we made THESE….and THESE? Well, today I’m reviving my love of footwear with these DIY tassel sneakers using the Crop-a-Dile Big Bite tool. Yep – you heard me, I’m using a Crop-a-Dile….for sneakers. You’re going to want to stick around for this one!

STEP ONE

Use a marker to place two dots on the top of the sneakers

STEP TWO

Use the Crop-a-Dile Big Bite tool to punch holes in the sneakers where you made the marks. Unlike the traditional Crop-a-Dile tool, the Big Bite has a longer reach making it easy to punch holes in the middle of wider, longer materials.

STEP THREE

Place the eyelets into the hole and again use the Big Bite to clamp the eyelets into place
