I have a few random sketches and such that are just loose pieces of paper. I'm trying to find something I can safely keep them in but I'm having problems finding anything since most sketch pads (and therefore my sketches) are bigger than
8.5 x 11.

You probably want some sort of portfolio to keep everything in.. you can buy one for $30+ at an art store, or if its just drawings you're storing, and you don't need to transport it a lot, its a lot cheaper (and actually easier to store also) if you just make one out of cardboard.  Personally, I have an expensive (I'm talking $200) portfolio and I have a bunch of cardboard ones, and the cardboard ones work just as well (plus you can make it the size you want, you should be making it so that you have a border of a few inches all the way around the largest art you want to store in it).

Here is an instructables about it: http://www.instructables.com/id/Super-Cheap-Portfolio-with-Duct-Tape-Latches/

Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.
