Welcome to Day 3 of Craft Lightning Felt Edition. I am excited to share with you how to create this pretty floral planner band. I am a paper planner girl. And although my planner often stays on my desk, sometimes on really busy days I like to take it with me. I prefer to keep a planner band around it so that it stays nice and neat in my bag.

To make the flower more secure, cut a small circle and glue it to the back side of the flower.

For the pink flowers, glue the little tab to the backside of the flower. Then glue each layer together, starting with the biggest and working inward.

Measure out your elastic and hot glue the ends together. Make the band about 1/2″ to 1″ smaller than your planner. This will ensure a tight fit.
