if you stick to your super cool document bag (that has thin elastic band wrapping around them) all your life, but the elastic's no longer snaps, here's what to do:
1. cut the elastic band
2. prepare velcro and epoxy glue or velcro that has adhesive on the back
3. stick it inside the lid and the body
4. if you're not using the sticky velcro, but glue, don't use it immediately. wait for 4-6 hours to make the glue reaaaallly hard & set the velcro on its place.

here's the tutorial (hand-drawn by me)

thank you so much for your compliments. i don't know either the exact name is. but a document bag is like a folder (usually made of plastic), where you could put all your paper.
