Pencil & Glow Stick Valentines Hip2Save

Today I’m excited to share two simple and inexpensive non-candy classroom Valentine ideas that are so darn cute! Plus, I’ve included the corresponding printable labels for you to print for FREE.

First, check out how you can transform pencils into an adorable treat for Valentine’s Day.

Printing on a thicker paper or card stock is definitely recommended. After cutting out your hearts, punch holes on both sides to slide a pencil through. Note: You may have to punch a few times with a standard whole punch to create a large enough hole.

You can also use the free printable label to create this cute pencil arrow craft! Just glue the label to two pieces of larger heart shaped scrapbook or construction paper. Then twist some pipe cleaners around one end of the “arrow” and tape two small hearts to the tip of the pencil.

I found these sweet pencils at Target’s Dollar Spot priced around 7 for $1.

And here’s one more idea that is cheap and easy too! Buy glow stick bracelets (you can typically find them priced around 7 for $1 at Dollar Tree or Target’s Dollar Spot). Use this FREE printable label that I designed in black ink – have the kids color the label in fluorescent colored markers, highlighters, or crayons.

To use, just punch a hole on both ends and insert your glow stick!

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!
