I would choose based on envelopes, that’s what i did, I live in the middle of no where and thigns were hard to come by, and certain sizes of envelopes were about 1.25$ EACH! I went will 5.5 x 5.5 and i got those envelopes at michaels (2 1/2hour drive away though) with my 40% off coupon. I 50 for about 15$

I’d suggest the 5×7, even though the 6×6 would probably look more unique.  Beware that the post office will charge more to deliver square envelopes.  Also, you can fit two 5×7 pieces of paper on a standard 8.5×11 sheet of paper, so you’ll save on paper when you print and cut your inserts.

Mine are 6″x6″ squares.  I am using 5.5″ square invitations so I am able to still fit two per page.  Also, the inserts on mine are 4.5″ wide because the pocket is too tight if they are wider.

I had to come up with my own sizes to be able to create my pocketfolds from european A4 paper as the papersizes I found templates for (to make 5×7″ pocketfolds) wasn’t available here. I’d say, pick a size you like and go from there. It does help to know what enveloppe sizes are out there though. The only enveloppes I could find here were waaaay to big for my 12x18cm pocketfolds and I ended up having to order them internationally /giggles

I’m actually making my own to fit our A6 4 3/4″ x 6 1/4″ envelopes with a 4×6 invite and 4×6 response postcard. I know that’s not the normal size but my DIY project and budget called for something different =)

 

 

like @mrs-to-be said start with  your envelope size and go from there =)
