Also to know is, what can I use to cut a rug pad?
Take a 2x4 or other long straight edge, and stand on it to compress the pad and stabilize it, then use your utility knife to cut it. If you are doing a lot of carpet/flooring work, get yourself a hooked flooring/carpet knife (any hardware store will have them). They have a large hooked blade and a good solid handle.
how much should a rug overlap the pad? Make sure to measure your rug, and then mark off your rug pad so that the finished pad will leave approximately one inch of rug overlap on all sides.

Should rug pad be same size as rug?
A rug pad should be slightly smaller in size than the actual size of the rug. If the rug pad is slightly smaller than the rug, then the edges of the rug will taper to the floor. The rug pad should be about one inch less than your rug size on all four sides.
