Another way to make a bento band

I had to make one today for my new middle school daughter's new box, this is just some elastic, a piece of wool felt, a button and some beads. If you have a stash of single vintage buttons this would be fun way to use them up. If you don't have a sewing machine I think the elastic could be hand sewed together and then glued between a sandwich of a ready-made applique on top with a piece of felt underneath to hold it together.
