What can I do with leftover materials?

Scrap Material

Check with stores to find out if they have leftover scrap materials you can buy (or better yet, have for free). Lumber, plexiglass, photo mats, leather, canvas, paper, etc. The possibilities are endless. Any place that produces a product also produced leftovers but because they don't think of them as useful, you might not find out about them unless you ask.
