Googely Eye Bracelet I saw this on Martha and knew it would be perfect for our Monster's Inc themed costumes (assuming we actually wore them this year).

Thanks to the wonderfully crafty team over at Etsy- we can now make our very own sailor's knot bracelets! I've always wanted to know how to do this- but as it was, my Mom signed me up for Brownies rather than Boy Scouts- thus I honed in on sewing patches rather than tying knots. But now with this easy tutorial, you too can be a master-knotter. Imagine the possiblilities!

DIY Paper Beads One time I was seriously considering buying a pair of sandals because they were offering a free bonus paper bead necklace. I really liked the sandals, but I the paper bead necklace.
Note from Design Mom: I asked Kate of Mini Eco to create a Back to School themed project for us to try.
