If you’re looking for a cute Christmas craft to do with kids over the holidays, consider these easy Santa Face photo props using paper plates! All the supplies can be picked up at the dollar store and you’ll have fun making them, and turning it into a fun photo opportunity!


Santa Hat Photo Prop

Supplies Needed:

Red Construction Paper
White School Glue or Glue Stick
White Paper Plates
White Paper
Cotton Balls


Cut out the middle portion of a white paper plate. Glue cotton balls to a triangle shaped piece of red construction paper, and then glue that to the top of paper plate. Glue ends of white strips of paper together, then glue them around the bottom of the paper plate for the “beard”.


We decided to make a quick snowman version as well using basically the same idea! To make this one, first cut a black piece of construction paper into a hat shape and then glue it to the plate. Glue on a piece of red paper and snowflake embellishment to the hat.

This would make such a cute and easy school party craft! One year I set up a craft station at my Christmas party for the kids to make these! So fun!

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!
