i have a brownie that take 116 film as well.
you can easily tape some paper in the camera instead of film
or if you can find a 2nd spool, you can roll paper onto the spools instead.
i am currently doing that with a 3a, and it is easy .. just use masking tape
rate your paper at around 6 or 12 ..
my brownie has 3 "fstops" .. i haven't figured out what they are ( maybe 8. 11, 16? ) but expose your paper at around 1 second wide open for starters to get an idea
