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.

  • HIP List
  • Print

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 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 in classic view.

If you prefer to view 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.
