Smarties Pants for a Smarty-pants

I wanted to make a fun just-because gift for my husband, so I made this Pants-shaped box to hold some Smarties candies... he is my favorite smarty-pants!

I adapted the Santa Pants Bag from SVG Cuts' Happy Holiday Kit.

The box is made with a paper from Sweetwater's Family Ties collection. The belt & buckle are cut from a brown paper that is shiny on one side. The suspenders were cut from a scrap of Graphic 45 paper and attached with tiny button brads. I heat-embossed a wood pocket-watch in silver and added a sentiment in the Saddlebag font.

This box is 2.5 inches high, almost 4.5 with the suspenders. I decided to make a smaller one, about an inch smaller, and it's even more adorable.

Which size do you prefer? I can't decide which is better, and I definitely want to make more!
