Thanks Bunki, another "duh" idea! I was able to shrink the margin on the
side that was getting cut off.

I do a similar project with 3rd grade every year. We fold the paper in 1/2, then 1/2 again. Drawing heavily with black crayon draw a design in one section. Close the paper, then rub hard with your scissors handle (they love this!). Open up, redraw your lines as they will not be bold, then fold the other direction and rub both halves. Then we color with crayons. They look really neat when finished.
