Teacher Appreciation Card Idea

This week Snapncrop is having a sale on White 4×4 and 4×6 RTC grid paper. RTC (Ready To Cut) is special Mosaic Moments™ grid paper specifically created to make unique cards. Currently we only have White available, but more colors will be coming. 😉

I love RTC grid paper since you can create cards with mosaic look. I love that the grid keeps everything straight and it looks clean and organized. Today I am going to show a teacher appreciation card idea. The school year is ending pretty soon so many of you maybe thinking of a teacher gift. RTC is a great way to make a simple and adorable card quickly.

Here is a list of all the items I used for my Card:


To begin the project, I cut my 12×12 RTC paper in half horizontally at 6 inches (shown below).

Now you have one long strip to make a tri-fold card. Now score the paper every four inches as shown by red lines below. Fold on score lines. Easy! Now you have a tri-fold card!

I decided to add ribbon and a cute apple charm to keep my card closed:
