Are you looking for a unique gift for your child’s teacher this holiday season? Or maybe a unique way to say thanks to a teacher for all they have done? Then look no further. We have just the thing for you! For your consideration is this fun upcycled book apple. It stands approximately 7 inches tall and is about 6.5 inches wide. All of our book apples are made from old Reader’s Digest books rescued from a local thrift store. They are painted a lovely bright apple red. Each one is then adorned with a green origami folded paper leaf, a stem made from branches collected from my neighborhood and a sweet little brown gossamer bow. Just like in nature each one of these apples is unique. This one’s sure to make a great gift for teachers or any book lover in your life. It will definitely be a conversation piece! Be sure to check out our other listings for other items made from upcycled books. Thanks for looking!

***Please note: This listing is for a MADE TO ORDER book apple. Because of this, please allow 7-10 days before your item ships.***

**If you are purchasing this item to be shipped to Australia, please note that due to Customs regulations the real branch stem cannot be shipped. It will be replaced with a rolled paper stem painted brown. Just as cute and no hassel with Customs!**

Like what we have to offer but maybe you’re looking for something a little different? I am glad to do custom orders! Please convo me with your ideas and we will work together on a special item to suit your needs.

***Please be sure to check out the Shop Policies section for FAQs regarding shipping, payment terms etc. ***
