I love that you can just use scraps of paper for this project!  Magazine letters and patterned paper would also work.  If you want to really recycle some more, cut up a cereal box or a used posterboard to glue your scraps on.  If you have a bunch of old file folders, you could cut them up to use as a surface.

This turned out to be one of my favorite projects!  I had kids use up the scraps from our scrap box.  They glue them to 9×12 tag board (like poster board) and then added patterns.
