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!

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 move 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, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, 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. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
