This is such a fun little box to make and takes hardly any time at all.
The two black buttons were melted pony beads - just the right size and shape for Santa's buttons.
I added a scalloped strip down the middle. I could have made this white, but opted for the red because it's such a small item, and I thought it might be best to keep it one color. Next time, I think I'll try some white, though, with a little fun flock on it.
To get to the gift card inside, you just have to slip off the belt and lift the top cover. Notice that I used a small 1" circle punch to create a little divot in the center of the cover to make it easier to open. I love the way the gift card just pops right up.
You'll find detailed instructions for this little box here on Splitcoaststampers. It truly only takes minutes to make and can be decorated to fit the occasion.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
