perfect party favor: elastic hair ties

i'm a bit crazy over this next DIY project.
i'll be using these for gift tags and party favors this holiday season.

first i found a cute saying and typed it up in a fun font.
i printed it out on a heavy cardstock that i could feed through my cheapie at home printer.
no fancy computer programs necessary.
i just used Word and figured out a way to print three on a page.
next I cut the cardstock and tied my elastic strips to make the bands.
i know you can buy fray sealer, but it was 10pm at night and i wasn't going anywhere.
so i improvised and used a lighter. very safe, i know. :)
easy and stinkin' cute!

i buy my glitter elastic here, but i'm sure you can find it locally at a craft store too.
