Santa-tizer Gift

I needed a quick and easy little Christmas gift to give the ladies on my team at work. I usually make some kind of yummy treat, but I know a couple of people are counting calories. I made these Santa-tizer crafts to hand out. I have seen these around for the past several years.
I found 2 oz. bottles of scented hand sanitizer at Target for $1.29 each. I brought them home and used them to decide what measurements I would need for scoring and cutting.
I cut 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch red cardstock into 2 in. by 11 in. strips. Then I used my scoring blade to score at 1/2 inch, 2 inch, 5 inch, and 6 1/4 inch.
I used a 1 inch circle punch to punch a hole in between the 1/2 inch and 2 inch score lines. Then I flipped the strip to the other end and used a decorative border punch to make it look cute.

I cut a 2 inch by 1/2 inch black strip for the belt. Then eyeballed the size square I needed for the belt buckle. Then I place a small rectangle of black in the center of the buckle.
I ran a strip of mono adhesive along the 1/2 inch section before my first score mark. Be sure to put the bottle of sanitizer inside the red strip of paper before you glue it together.
I attached a little note on the back and I was finished with the quick and easy craft gift. My team mates thought is was cute (and calorie free).
