I love creating things from recycled items that I have on hand. Here is Alma's tutorial for creating canvas out of cardboard from cereal boxes.
I love that many of Alma's tutorials show you how to make some great artwork out of recycled materials. This next tutorial from her is about using magazine pages to paint on. You can cut your created art piece into smaller pieces and then use them to make larger mixed media artwork. I think creating artwork this way would be great to just frame as is. Take a peek at her video and be inspired!
Here is a link to an article I wrote on Squidoo with some great ideas of crafts and gifts that kids can create.
