Upcycle Craft: Chicago Skyline

Here is an upcycle craft that can easily be done with supplies you have in the house: reusing scrap paper and old magazines to make art.
I made this Chicago skyline for my brother-in-law's birthday a couple years ago.  The lake and trees are made out of strips of ads from old Entertainment Weekly magazines.  The buildings are made out of old programs I had from shows in Chicago and menus of his favorite Chicago restaurants printed on scrap paper.

This was a fun way to reuse magazine pages and scrap paper.  You can cut out different shapes and make an abstract piece or give the scraps and some glue to your kids to see what they can create.
