With 5 daughters and 4 granddaughters, I am always on the lookout for cute and functional items to make for them. Somehow I missed the trendy elastic hair ties which have been popular for quite some time now! But I have now ordered and received a boatload of elastic from the Sunshine Shop, found some trinkets in my craft stash, and got to work making some of these super easy hair ties. I think they would make great birthday gifts for children's birthday parties as well. I packaged mine up on a tag cut with a die from Waltzingmouse, called Folding Tag Die Set.
