I just bought a 6" x 6" pad of double-sided paper for DD/JYC.

I'm using the Sn@p Binder, which has PPs of 6" x 8". Aside from cutting 2" borders and gluing them to each page, are there any more creative ways I can use this paper for a full page LO?

Thanks!

What about quadrants? Different papers, 1.5 x 2 (or two of the same with alternating in opposite corners)....or what about 3 x 4 pieces. These are just a couple of basic ideas I have.

You might want to try the 6x8 size in the page protector before you cut too many pages. I found that the snap page protectors are not really true to size and the 6x8 page that I cut was too small in the protector for my liking. (which really annoyed me since I bought an 8x8 pad to use specifically for my snap project). Don't want to see you make the same mistake I did!

A couple ideas of mine:

Three strips ( half inch x 6) of different patterns on a page to anchor a picture (picture "sits' on overlapping strips).

Cut several pieces as tags to pop out from the side of a picture.

Rather than border on the side of the page, border with a 3/4 inch strip at the top and a 1.5 inch strip at the bottom.

You can "stretch" the 6x6 paper to 6x8 by cutting it and placing the picture over the 2 inch gap in the middle.

I am not one for banners... but you could cut triangles of various patterns and "string" them across the top of the page.

Have fun-- I am a 6x6 enthusiast and I think you will be too when you start playing with them!!

I had the same problem with the page protector sizes, 6x8 is way too small. I'm still using that size because I had already pre-cut some papers.

What I did is cut my 6x6 in half and glue it to a piece of cardstock. I then cover the gap with embellishments, pictures, extra paper, etc.

Thank you for all the great ideas! I never would have thought of these on my own.

I'm going to try some of them later.

Re: the PPs and sizes. I already cut quite a lot of pages and I did, indeed, find they don't fit perfectly in the sleeves. So far it hasn't been an issue, though. I did have one issue with a row of Jolee's embellishments on a 3" x 4" piece of paper, and it keeps popping upward and out of the sleeve! I guess it's too fat to fit in there properly.
