I bought a 6 Pack of Top Loaders for some Revenge proofs and found myself with a few extras. I looked at my 2 Pack and always wanted to secure the bubble but didn't really have a way........until now!

I decided to do some measuring of the bubble edges and decided to cut the top loader. Basically just cut the outline of the bubbles itself (not the flat part) and viola! A nice bubble protector! Excuse my poor cutting, this was just a first try!!

I love the idea John, it secures the bubble to the card so it can't fall off.

On the other hand, you need to train your cutting skills Laughing

Thanks for showing

Great idea! That could be used for a number of various items with weak bubbles.

That really is a great idea John !
A piece of scrap card inside the Top Loader will allow you to cut your shape out using a craft knife and straight edge, The card will stop the knife blade going right through the back of the Top Loader, remove card when finished and you have a perfect straight cut ! Before reading this thread I probably would have used a touch of glue, which I now realise is NOT the thing to do !, so thanks for the tip ! Very Happy
Cheers Andy.

I don't have any toploaders kicking around, but would an xacto cutting mat fit inside (thickness)?
That should prevent the blade from cutting too deep for sure.
