More Teacher gifts

I made a few more ornaments as per the Teacher Gift Post 
I normally get all tied up inside about cutting up any book.These ornaments were made from a math text book that was going to be destroyed back in 95 by my daughters' school.They wanted it then it got water damage and I have been kind of hoarding it ever since.YEAH, I'm one of those people.Mine mine mine gimme gimme gimme.I'm seeing daffy duck holding a pearl while saying this in an old bugs bunny cartoon running in my minds eye.So, no land fill but crafty gifts years later.And here are the other three.     
 *                                                                I Also am making two formy mail ladies with mail boxes on them.It's just cutting gradient sizes 'til I get the look I want.Sewing onto a felt shape and hanging.Hope I can inspire some like NoBiggie Inspired me

Teacher gift

I got wonderfully inspired by this post for an apple decoration made out of an old book
http://www.nobiggie.net/2010/11/make-apple-out-of-book-paper.html
I used felt for the last two layers.And used the thread to make a loop to place a hook.So, here's my version:
OK so I made the pic really big.I just love the way this turned out.Have a Holly Jolly y'all.
