Lighting up belts for product shots

Hi all,

I'm going to be shooting some belts on a light table for a friend in the next week or so.

I've got 2 strobes and I wonder what the best setup would be? I've got 2 large soft boxes, and I was planning on getting them in real close and 45 degrees facing towards the belts with even power. The theory is they will be outside the family of angles to avoid hard highlights off the buckle, but enough in front to keep things well lit.

Does this sound good in theory?
