What is a Lapbook? It’s an interactive Folio that opens out to cover your lap. You will make pockets and fold outs to decorate with beautiful prints. A project that can be added to as you wish. This is the first Pocket version that Janie has released, making it lighter and ‘cuter’ than the usual TN size.


With a selection of printed paper designs from the Potions range you can choose how your book will look by using the papers in your own configuration. This kit is curated to give you a beautiful dark magical colour palette. With the addition of pockets, tags and even a test tube, this kit is a gorgeous project giving you skills to take forward to more bookbinding.

Janie’s Ephemera template set is a perfect partner to this kit, to make additional ephemera.
