DIY Paper Poinsettia Hip2Save

Here’s a very fun way to make your own poinsettia present topper that looks fancy but is actually very quick and easy.  I used a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper, but you can use any thick paper like a grocery store paper bag or brown craft paper. These turn out super cute and you can even make a bunch and use for a wreath, Christmas tree ornaments, or table décor.


Piece of scrapbook paper or thick paper
hot glue gun and glue stick
embellishment (buttons, beads, sequins, faux berries)

Remember in school how you would fold a piece of paper in half and cut out hearts? Use the same strategy here except cut out a long leaf shape. By folding the paper in half, you are giving the leaves that cool 3D effect.

Cut out flower petals


Fold paper and cut out 5 smaller leaves and 5 larger leaves. Don’t measure. My bigger leaves were around 3 inches and my smaller leaves about 2 inches. Keep folding sections of  paper and cutting leaves. Also cut a circle to glue your leaves to.

Glue the 5 larger leaves to the circle first by using a small dot of glue at one end.

Glue the smaller leaves on top.

Add an embellishment in the middle. I happened to have these faux berries.

Tape or glue to your present.

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!
