Anyway have you seen the hair ties made out of fold over elastic or FOE? They sell them in stores around here for like $3 a hair tie. I have jumbo thick hair so while they were really cute I wasn't sure if they would be able to hold my hair. I decided to find out I would just make my own, I could make 30 for the what 2 cost in the boutique.
I bought my FOE elastic from the etsy shop Elastic By The Yard the 10 yd multi pack was perfect because there were so many pretty colors to choose from. To make the hair ties you need fold over elastic (FOE from now on), ruler, scissors and a lighter
After you cut the FOE singe the edges with a lighter. My fav part, I love to burn things.
Tie a knot and you are finished! I didn't tie my knots very tight that way if the recipient of my hair tie needed it to be tighter they could easily take out the knot and adjust to their liking.
I used a cereal box to cut up and make little holders for my cards. I cut them 3"x5" and stamped them with my little $1 spot stamps.
Load them up and you are ready to give them out.
