You need a metal tube of the correct diameter for your needs. Steel would be best.
Sharpen the end on a sander and wet stone.
Flatten it slightly to achieve the shape that you want.
To finish off, a rod to eject the punched eyes.
You could probably punch a dozen and then eject them in one go.

Go to your local sign shop and have them make some out of vinyl tape. You can get hundreds for under $20. They will make whatever size, shape and color you want.
