For the last ten years, I've been making collages using only trash. I do not buy any new materials just to cut them up. The collaged items have to have been used for something else first, and would normally be thrown away. I use a lot of paper products like magazine clippings and fast food napkins, but it's great to sneak in something a little less flat. I've used old blue jeans, pop tabs, wallpaper samples, and 3-inch floppy disks. If you'd consider throwing it away, I'd consider gluing it to something else.
