Now, to share a bit about the products and how they are different from other products. For starters, you need to read Sheri's post about a couple of the items over at Scrapbooks and Lapbooks. Oh my...what a creative lady! She has been a great influence on me on understanding the needs of those that lapbook, notebook, and scrapbook. Sadly, I don't do any myself. However, after seeing some of Sheri's projects, I want to start!
I'm currently offering six different products, all designed with special features to solve frustrations with lapbooking.
I have two different folder bases to replace those ugly manila folders. The first is the Fold-Up Project Base, sold in a pack of 5.
|Heavy white cardstock|
|Gives you a larger working area over manila folders with no ugly center creases|
|Top flap is double-scored as are the other folds.|
|These strips have mylar-enforced holes and a very strong adhesive.|
|Much prettier than duct tape!|
|Keep all your labbooks secure in a binder|
My last three products were originally inspired by reading a post by Tristan of Our Busy Homeschool. She had highlighted a lapbook that her daughter made that was in a spiral book form, rather than a folder. I have three sizes: 6" x 8", 9 1/2" x 11", and 12" x 12".
|The white spiral is a standard size. Our spiral (in black) gives more room for adding items to the pages.|
The 9 1/2" x 11" book, which is slightly larger than a standard piece of paper, was a suggestion for all those notebookers out there. It allows for easy transfer of other work into one nice spiral-bound book. The 12" x 12" was to help lapbookers take advantage of all those great scrapbooking supplies and for those extra-special and large projects. Both of these books also have a double pocket in the page to hold extra items, either during the book construction or for extra items that went with the study.
Pear Educational Products. I am certainly open to suggestions for new sizes and products. Feel free to contact me with any ideas. In the meantime, I hope all of you lapbookers enjoy these products. Seeing all the amazing ways you document learning is truly inspiring!
