Cheap DIY New Year's Eve Party Glasses

What's better than some cheap, homemade, paper party glasses to ring in the New Year?  Nothing.  This Howcast video outlines the complete process to making this decorated eyewear, but you should probably make one minor change, since this is a video tutorial from last year— change the "2010" design to a "2011" design.  Just think if you forgot to change the date on these party glasses— you might be sending your fellow partygoers the wrong message!

For this simple project, you'll need a pair of sunglasses, drawing paper, a pencil, scissors, cardboard (or poster paper), and decorations.
