Items Needed:

*Clear glass plate from Dollar Tree
*Patterned tissue paper (preferably thick tissue paper)
*Foam paint brush
*Mod podge

I love baking and giving away my baked goods to my friends and family. I decided to make something to make the gift even more special. I now decorate plates, so after the recipient finishes the cookies they have a nice plate they can use for years to come. It does not have to be a Christmas plate, it can be plain paper, or other patterned paper. Also you can have your child draw on the paper and make a special personalized plate!

1) First you need to cut the paper into a circle, slightly bigger than the back of the plate.

2) Brush on a layer of mod podge to the back of the plate and place the paper on the plate, smoothing any wrinkles out the best you can.

3) Next, brush a layer of mod podge on top of the paper.

4) When that drys, cut the paper to the edge of the plate then apply another coat. Apply a third coat if wanted.

NOTE – This plate should be hand-washed only.

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!
