What is the advantage of using a 12 x 24 mat? Can you cut something 24 inches long or is it just the fact that you can load more paper without having to change mats?

technically you can't cut 24 inches due to the little edge that the cricut cuts around but you could utilize the whole mat. it's good for bags, boxes, larger projects etc.

I am a school library media specialist and I use it to create larger cuts for bulletin boards and displays. I also cut a lot of construction paper (laminated first) so then I can make the shapes up to 18" long (the length of my construction paper).

It's also great for using my Gypsy to weld words together that will go on my bulletin boards or walls.

I've also heard people use it to cut out full 12" shapes, borders, etc. As Doxieluv mentioned, you can't actually cut all the way to the edge of the mat so on a 12x12 mat, you can only cut about 11.5". That's not long enough it you want something to truly stretch across your 12x12 scrap layouts.
