This is a hip and frugal homemade gift idea for the holidays.  Super easy and inexpensive!

Ceramic Tile Coasters

Step 1. Gather your materials:

*4 1/2 inch ceramic tiles (purchased from Home Depot for 12 cents each!)
*Scrapbook paper, cut into 3 3/4 inch squares
*Mod Podge
*sponge brush
*adhesive felt dots

Step 2. Apply adhesive felt dots to underside of ceramic coasters.

Step 3. Using a sponge brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to underside of square scrapbook paper and press down onto ceramic tile, smoothing out any air bubbles. Allow to dry completely.

Step 4. Apply thin layer of Mod Podge over the scrapbook paper with sponge brush.  Let dry completely, then apply another layer of Mod Podge.  Repeat two or three more times, allowing Mod Podge to dry completely between layers.  (You may choose to spray an acrylic sealer over the top of finished coasters, this gives them a better seal and will make them more waterproof).

Step 5. After coasters dry completely, wrap up in a decorative ribbon and they are ready to gift! This project could be done with photos if you want to make a more personalized gift!

Happy Holidays!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
