Cynthia Rowley is on one heck of a roll -- literally. She had her “Shop on Wheels” truck that brought her wares door to door throughout the country earlier this month.

Rowley has teamed up with Band-Aid Brand to create a line of limited edition adhesive bandages that look more like accessories or temporary tattoos than your typical flesh colored sticky strips. These are printed with festive sequins, lace, chain patterns, gems and even Rowley’s full name emblazoned across a couple of them, so you’re not just getting her designs, but the designer label too.

The Band Aid tins come with 20 bandages and sell for $10.00. A dollar from the sale of each tin will go to the Design Ignites Change organization.

If your boo-boos have been looking pretty blah lately, now you know what to do. Band Aid Brand by Cynthia Rowley limited edition tins are available at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in NYC and
