Below are the directions on how I trimmed the page for it to fit into my 5 x 7 planner journal.

I trimmed my pages to approximately 5 x 7. This allowed the pages to fit perfectly to the front and back covers. Adjust your settings and trimming according to the size of the project you plan to create.

First you trim off  1.5″ from the side as shown above. This is along the top part above where “date” and the lines are.

Turn the page upside down so that the word date is closest to the top as shown. You will align the trimmer to 5 3/16″ as shown on the trimmer. Trim your paper.

Once you have trimmed the paper, you will trim the right edge of the paper with the word date and lines facing you as shown and cut .25″ off the right side of your paper. Set this aside.

Pick up the other half of the paper as shown and flip upside down so that the area with the most blank space is aligned on the left side. Measure five inches from the left so that the paper will fit your cover.
