    take your round lead and flatten it with some flat nose pliers

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    You can also buy solder or fuse wire and flatten it. Available at hardware/radio shack etc. Make sure you don't get acid core or flux core-you want solid. That's what everybody used back in the day.
    If you're really up for the DIY experience, buy a lead sinker or duck decoy weight or pick up scrap lead at the recycler. Melt it in a ladle on your stove, pour it onto a dry disposable surface then cut it to size when it cools.
