The team here at me & my BIG ideas are craft people. Planning is our love language, but so is DIY. Imagine our delight when mambi Design Team member Jennie McGarvey sent us this DIY project for her 'Be Bright' Happy Planner™! Jennie mixed new with old when she jazzed up her Happy Planner™ elastic bands with some burlap, felt, and pearl embellishments from her craft stash!
About this project, Jennie writes:
"I love The Happy Planner™ elastic bands. They help me keep my place, PLUS give me something to clip my pen to. I took a look at one and realized I could dress these up with scraps and items around the house!"

"I grabbed scraps of burlap + felt from my craft stash. In addition I'm using some clear buttons and my hot glue gun. I took the felt and drew swirls on the back. I took my scissors and cut them out. I used my glue gun to attach the flowers all together.
I printed tiny photos, punched them to size and used a clear glue to attach to the buttons. Now, I could attach them to the flowers with the hot glue gun. Once I had all the flowers finished, I could use the same hot glue gun to attach them to the Happy Planner™ bands.
Since I had some mini pearls, I glued those on, too. You could use gems, sequins, or anything!"
