I've asked before and the peas have come thru. I need to make 165 valentines for the teachers at my daughters school from the PTO. I try to do them as inexpensive as possible about 20 cents each if possible. We do something every month last month the peas gave me the idea of fortune cookies with a tag saying we're fortunate to have you. It needs to be fairly simple. At ideas would be great.

Thanks Carie

20 cents each--that's going to be hard. If you could buy pens in bulk and attach a tag to each with something like, Happy Valentine's Day- You're the write one for me (or our kids), etc. Good luck and let us know what you gave.

I have one i made this morning, it's on my Blog....... It takes a stamp and a ream of white cardstock from walmart ($7.00), and an embossing folder......... Each card will take you a few minutes if you set up an assembly line.This design should be easy to modify with the stash/scraps you already have on hand, I hope it offers you some inspiration

How about little cellophane bags with goldfish. "We're glad you're in our school." Do they have red or pink goldfish?

Do you like to cook or bake?

You could make iced gingerbread hearts and put them in cellophane bags, with a stamped tag and tie it with twine or ribbon. I made something like this for my work colleagues this year and did about 16 gifts from one batch (each person got 10 or so pieces though, you could give them much less than that if it's only meant to be a really small gift)

Or cupcakes maybe with buttercream and valentine sprinkles.

I'm also thinking handmade fudge or something like that could be done within your budget (as long as you only give each person a small amount).
