Santa’s Belt, Christmas Matchbox, Favour Tree Decoration

This is another idea I had for using my Stampin’Up matchbox die to make a tree decoration to use up the mega box of small Lindtt teddies I got.I have had the silver, plastic buckles forever, and wasn’t originally sure if the proportions would work, but I think they are OK.
To make the belt I just cut a black matchbox lid using the die and then trimmed it so it could be threaded through the buckle and then wrapped it round the middle of the matchbox, securing it with double sided tape.  A small, black button and a scrap of white, self adhesive, border finish the box, making it ready to hang on the tree.
