If you checked out my 101 Valentines Ideas for Under $5, you get the idea how easy it can be to turn just about anything into a fun Valentine with a little creativity. Like these erasers I found in the $1 aisle of Target last spring:
Which were packaged six for a $1:
I didn’t immediately think “Valentines” when I came across these (after all, they aren’t a Valentine item). But I knew they would make some sort of fun, inexpensive and useful prize/favor for a whole class so I couldn’t pass it up.
I decided to make some tags and put the erasers and tags in a little craft bag. I made the tags on the computer then printed and cut them out. They say: “From there to here, from here to there, I’ll be your Valentine anywhere!” It was a tie between that and “In the east or in the west, ‘make no mistake’ Valentine, I like you best!” But to be honest I’m tired of the puns right now.
These little craft bags are available (250/$4.99) at Hobby Lobby (don’t forget your coupon) and they keep everything together nicely:
The tag, bag, plus eraser makes these Valentines about 20 cents each:
How fun is that?! A Valentines with zero calories. =D
Hope you’re inspired to make some one of a kind Valentines, too!
Thanks for visiting!
