1. Open your Chanel wallet as if you were going to put some bills in and, using a pencil, mark off a point that is about 1/4-inch away from the halfway point inward from where the side wall of your wallet meets the front of your wallet, and about 1/4-inch down from the top of the side wall of the wallet (if this is confusing, check out the next couple of pics to get a better idea of where this point is). Then, carefully use a thick needle to create a hole at this point.
Please excuse my ashy hands throughout this DIY tutorial. Crafting is great fun but it doesn’t leave you much time to moisturize!
2. Then, using something slightly thicker than your needle (I used needle nose pliers), widen the hole you just created. The idea here is that you want to be able to stick your eyelet in but still have a snug fit.
3. Once you have a wide enough hole, stick your eyelet in with the ring facing outward (since we want the outer part to have a finished look).
