Have you seen how much stores like Anthropolgie charge for their cute hair ties? $12 for 5? What am I, Rockefeller? [name that tv show] It turns out that fold over elastic is pretty cheap, so Anthropoligie et al. are just charging a lot because they can. I order my elastic from Elastic By The Yard, who has an excellent selection of colors. I’ve ordered from them a couple of times, and am always pleased with the customer service, and how quickly my order arrive. I have also found it at Michaels. A couple of different colored hair ties, some cardboard, and washi tape can be turned into a great little gift.
