You do not need to break the bank to start collage. All you need, really are the following:

  • something to collage on;
  • something to collage;
  • something to collage with.

N.B.– A good quality glue stick (I love UHU and Pritt) is a great and cheap option to collage, especially if you are using thin or normal weight paper (up to 100gsm). For anything thicker or fabric, you will need a liquid-based adhesive as the glue stick will not adhere enough.
