Q: What about large items? How do I fit papers that are larger than 8 1/2 x 11 inches into our notebooks?
For example, we like to make timelines and maps on large sheets of paper. Once we used a roll of fax paper for a number line. How can those oversized projects be used in notebooking?
A: There are several ways to fit big things into your notebooks.
- Fold them in half or accordion style, being sure to leave the hole-punched margin free of any obstructions.
- Fold them and put them into a page protector, an envelope, or a pocket.
- Fold them in half or fourths and affix the back of the folded items to a sheet of hole-punched cardstock so they can be unfolded.
- Take a photo of the item and include it in your notebook rather than the actual object.
