Thought I was going to stop at 15, huh? Just because the initial announcement said "15"? Psh. I'm a rebel.
I came up with (what I think) is a pretty cute teacher valentine! It's not going to make them fat, it's not expensive, it's not mushy gushy (that would be my son talking again...), it's useful, it's something they need, and it's cute!
So if those aren't enough reasons for this bonus DIY valentine idea (that can still be made from dollar store materials, mind you) then I don't know what'll convince you!
If your kiddo's teacher is stu-PEN-dous, this is the valentine - and free printable! - for you!
Simply punch two holes at the top of the card across from each other horizontally. Then punch two holes in the pack of pens directly under those holes. Wrap twine through all of the holes (I wrapped it around the whole package twice) then tie in a bow on the front.
Then you just slice two slits in the card, one at the top middle and one at the bottom middle. Make sure you make the slits long enough to make up for the diameter of the pen. (I find you usually have to make them a little longer than you think you do.) Then just stick your pen through the slits.
Voila! A teacher valentine!
I think these would make super cute classmate valentines, too (which is why I made the printables a little generic, no "teacher" or anything...).
Just buy a BIG pack of pens and slip one in each card.
Here are the last valentine printables I'm giving you!
