I've never used a Dremel for drilling holes in paper but assume it would
work well if the papers were suitably clamped near the point where you
want the hole(s). A small hand drill would work very well and would cost
a lot less. I've seen them at jewelry supply stores and assume that they
would be available at craft stores. However, clamping is still a must.
It's best to make a jig with the holes in it where you want them on the
paper and then to clamp the jig onto your stack of paper.
