just out of curiosity, any chance you post an image of your belt? The idea of fashioning something so last minute reeks of failure, but the sense of accomplishment and (more importantly) money saving leaves me intrgiued....
I dont have any handy unfortunately. Though i wouldnt recommend scrambling to make your own at the last minute, as it likely will be less than impressive. Mine took me many weeks of collecting and additions to find the right pieces. Though i suppose if you have no choice you just do what you gotta do; all you need is essentially is a pouch to keep stuff in, really. One AC i worked with just used an across-the-shoulder army pouch from WWII, looked like something Indiana Jones had (i dont recommed this though, as it doesnt hug the body well and thus gets in the way).

Go to the Hardware store (or better, a Home Depot, I dunno if they exist in the UK)...
browse through the store and see which tool-belt best fits your need.
You can also go to an Army surplus store...
Ammo pouches make good pouches to carry all sorts of tools.
Also you can get a carabiner (like the one used for climbing)
And tie trickline to it and use it to hold your taperoll--you can connect the carabiner to your belt.
Also a water bottle pouch can be used to carry canned-air.
Just take a look an improvise.
