Love photo gifts and photo canvases?

Make your own photo canvases at home with this EASY and FUN method using Mod Podge decoupage and photo prints. This is my one of my all time favorite crafts and the result is a beautiful photo canvas you can keep for yourself or give away as a thoughtful personalized gift!

The supplies are inexpensive and easy to find as well!


DIY Photo Canvas

Supplies Needed:

Mod Podge
Craft Foam Brush
Photo Prints
Blank 8×10 Canvas
Craft Paint
Sand Paper


  • Start by cutting the photo to the same size as your canvas.
  • Paint a layer of Mod Podge over the top of canvas and lay the photo on top, carefully smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Let dry.
  • Paint two or three layers of Mod Podge over the top, making sure to let each layer dry in between.
  • After completely dry, use a small piece of sand paper to gently smooth edges, if needed.
  • Use craft paint around the sides of canvas. I use a small paint brush and add some brush marks to the sides for a more rustic look. (If your prefer, feel free to paint sides first then add photo and Mod Podge for a cleaner look.)
  • Let dry and enjoy your photo canvas! That’s it… super easy!

  • 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.
