Consider using used egg cartons, food containers, boxes, ice cream containers, drink trays, soap containers, lotion bottles, soda cans, tin foil, food wrapers, shredded paper, envelopes, junk mail, old CD's, old dishes, nylons, fabric, bottle caps, fishing line, etc.
You may consider making a sculpture, jewelry, purse, furniture, clothing, mobile or anything your imagination comes up with.
