We use a rivet shaver as well...but if you have only a few to do, you can do them with a Dremel or Foredom tool - or even a file. Cut the shank down first as close to the rivet head as possible, then shave them. It helps keep the tool from hooking up on the shank &/or jumping off the rivet and marring the skin. There is a "special tool" for trimming the shanks, but we just used a pair of wire cutters - worked fine.
