Using the Real Leather Crafts punch kit to create riveted bracelets is quick and easy, and has great results.  See how we made these bracelets in 10 quick steps below.  If you're looking for the products used in the project, head over to our online store to find them.

begin by collecting your project supplies

Step 1

You'll need to start by gathering you supplies for the project
  • Real Leather Crafts Leather Punch
  • 10mm Flat Leather Strip (8 inches)
  • Metal Block
  • ID Bar
  • Hexagonal Screw Rivets
  • Hammer
  • Magnetic Clasp
  • Super New Glue
Begin by cutting your leather in half

Step 2

Now take your ID bar and loop the end of one of your pieces of leather through the opening about 3/4ths of an inch. Use a marker on your leather to indicate where you want to make your hole.

Step 3

Remove your leather from the ID bar and set it on your metal block. Line up your punch tool over the area you marked for your hole. Hold your punch tool firmly in place and hit the end with a hammer. You may have to hit the tool a few times for a nice clean punch.

Step 4

Check to make sure you've punched all the way through the leather

Step 5

Fold your leather back under your punch, and mark the area for your next punch.

Step 6

Insert your punch tool into the first hole you created to punch your second hole. You can also line your punch tool up to the markered area and create your punch.

Step 7

Now that your first leather strip is completed, you can set it on top of your second strip and use a marker to mark where you need your holes.

Step 8

Your punch holes should be pretty well line up here.

Step 9

Take your leather and run it through the center piece, fold it and insert your rivet, then screw it tightly. Repeat on the other side.

Step 10

Now you will size your bracelet to fit your wrist, then insert the glue in your clasp and place your leather in. Let dry for a few minutes and you are finished.
