Easy doll-size buckles

Make simple, inexpensive miniature shoe and clothing buckles using metal filigree bead caps. You'll need bead caps, a hammer and strong scissors (I like these for stuff like this). Sand paper is optional. 

Hammer the pieces flat. Examine the holes and slits in the metal to determine how you want to cut it. The radial caps have repeated patterns so it's easy to make multiple matching buckles. 

Now you can run ribbon or trim through it to ornament a doll shoe or costume!
