How to Make a Sleek and Modern Swirly Bowl with Rivets (Tutorial)

August 22, 2018

This tutorial follows in the wake of the original version which used KAM snap fasteners. Substituting with silver rivets adds a sleek and modern look to the finished design.

 

Materials needed:

 

 

See our handy video on how to install rivets.

 

1. Follow steps #1-4 from the  original tutorial here.

Instead of plastic snaps, I am using the  KAMsnaps KX8J professional handheld press and 8mm double cap silver rivets for this version.

6.  Fill a small glass or jar with flowers and pop them in your vase for a centerpiece that will add a touch of modern design to any room. The vase can also double as a bowl for holding small items like candy, pencils, markers, or any other trinkets!
