I found this amazing flash card maker, Free Printable Flash Card Maker at http://www.kitzkikz.com/flashcards/. It is simple and easy to use. I can create as many flashcards as I need in as little as five minutes.
The website opens to two simple columns of boxes. The first column is for one side of the flash card and the other column is for the other side. After typing in my information, I hit PDF. This takes me to the next page where I can choose my settings. I always choose 6 per page. I also choose a font size. (Otherwise, the program changes the font size depending on how much information is on the card. Some will have really big font, such as a short vocabulary word. Another will have smaller font, such as the definition.)
Now I can view the PDF and print my cards, download the cards to my computer, and/or store the flashcards on the site for up to 30 days.
The flashcards print with one set of information on the left and the corresponding answer, or information on the right–just like the template. There is a dotted line between the columns. The student can fold the paper in half to self-quiz, or they can fold it and then cut a horizontal strip which becomes the flash card.
Sometimes I print two copies and glue them back to back. When I run them through the copy machine on the 2 sided to 2 sided setting, I end up with 2 sets of front to back traditional flashcards.
I really appreciate the fact that this site has very few graphics, no front page, and no frills. This means that I don’t have to click around to find the template, each page loads quickly, so there is little wait time.
This is a free website that does not require a download.
