how do i tighten and where does the buckle go?

OatsnHoney (author)thetenthring2009-03-27

To tighten the belt buckle you may want to add a small belt buckle in the inside of the buckle part.

Interesting. There are a couple of Altoid belt buckles on the site already... But it is an okay job.

Thanks took me like 10 minutes to make

Doctor What (author)OatsnHoney2008-11-24

I see that you cut yourself! I cut myself making one of these as well, but that was a while ago. All healed up now!
