After going to all the hard work to shaping handmade flowers and putting them on the scrapbook page, how do you keep from mashing them when you put them in the page protectors?

I use the 3 ring binder type albums and I don't fill them to overflowing. I think that makes a difference.
A certain amount of "squishing" can't be prevented, I think. I just don't fill my albums too full and hope for the best!
I do a lot of 3D type pages and they hold up pretty well.....

Also store them standing up.

3 ring binders have sleeves that are bigger and allow for 3D embellis

I have one page that I didn't think about before I started adding flowers. They are very close to the bottom corner of the page and pretty thick, so the page doesn't actually "fit" down into the page protector. Poor planning on my part. I cut a hole just where the flowers are so that they can come through. For some reason, they don't get smashed even when I lay my book down flat- they are sturdy enough flowers. I don't like having to cut the page protector but in this case there was really no other choice.

Just G - if I am using 12x12 sleeves, do they make bigger sleeves?

try recollections brand page protectors - I find them much roomier than most other protectors. some other brands are very tight for the 12" pages, especially with layers of flowers on top.
