Hi there! I just ordered this from the shop. Can you tell me which hole punch you guys used that is shown in the picture above? Thanks!

Hi @chungirl030 we used a 1/16" hole punch. You can also use sharp scissors to cut a small slit or an x-acto knife, but be careful! A tiny cut is all you need.

Can you use the purple leather from the Sedona Sunset Collection

Could you use the silver collar stud from the Sedona Sunset Collection instead of the screw on button stud?
