I needed to make a bunch of belt favors for some friends, figured I'd make a tutorial while I was at it, since I couldn't find any when I was first starting the project. If you find it useful, consider linking your own completed favors in the comments.

Also, this favor has a handy pocket, so it's even functional!

This could also work for fighters to carry their authorization cards. Trimaris requires them to pass inspection, other kingdoms may also.

The "butt flap" thing cracked me up. :giggle: I can't believe I didn't think of setting acrylic on fabric with an iron. When I worked in screen printing, we had a conveyer belt system for heat-setting ink. I hadn't thought that acrylic paint can be set the same way.

Glad it helped!  I think I learned about it from stenciling tutorials years ago.

Very glad you liked it! I know it's not exactly the most complicated object in the world, but I know when I was trying to decide how to make mine, I had to scratch my head a bit and think through it first. Yay tutorials!

You are very welcome! I couldn't find one when I was thinking of making these, so I decided to make my own tutorial for the next person looking to make some favors :D
