Teacher Note Cards - Printable FREEBIE

As I mentioned on yesterday's post, I am back with a printable FREEBIE that will help you to create notecards for a special teacher in your life! If you would like yours personalized (ie: my samples yesterday read 'from the desk of Ms. Teacher', see below for a low-cost option for personalization.

Printing Tip
When printing the 8.5x11 PDF file, make sure to print at 100%. Don't select any reduce/shrink to fit options. This will result in your cards being too small, and the cutting instructions won't work.

Cutting Instructions
The cards are set up to be 8.25" x 5.25" flat and 4.125" x 5.25" when folded. These will fit in a standard A2 envelope, but are slightly smaller than normal A2s. This is the only way you can get 2-per page and have the lines bleed off the front of the card.

After you have printed your pages (see above for printing tip), you will cut .25" off the top, right and bottom edges, then cut each card to 5.25" tall. If your printer shifts the paper at all when printing, you may need to eyeball your cutting so the lines bleed.

Assembly Tips
I have placed small gray circles to the left of the red lines to use as guides for 3-hole punching. When putting mine together I folded them first, then punched through both layers with a Crop-A-Dile.

The horizontal lines will wrap around to the back of the card when folded. This is to make sure the lines bleed off the left edge of the card front.

After folding you can round the corners if you choose. When making mine, I rounded only the 2 right corners, leaving the folded edge alone.

 Low-Cost Personalization Option
For only $2.00*, I will create and send you a personalized PDF file.
*Sales tax will be added to orders placed by customers in Kansas.

Like my samples yesterday, these cards will read:
from the desk of
Ms. TeacherName*
