For my entry, I wanted to make the majority of my project from the column items, challenging myself to use more than just a portion of each.  I used a half size phonebook for the main part of the shrine, cutting the center out to make room for the objects in the shrine.

I used:

Column A - junk mail: the shrine's border uses the inside of security envelopes from unwanted credit card offers

Column B - sheet music: background, dyed with tea
               magazine: woman and moon image cut from old magazines
               phonebook - body of shrine

whole piece (wire is looped through holes in the phonebook to allow it to hang with string):


from the side:


The small book at the woman's feet is made from my own handmade paper.  I incorporated elements that inspired me, especially in a story I have been struggling to write.  The elements of this shrine, inspired by the challenge of using items from columns, came together in a very inspiring way for me.  I hope you enjoy it!  Thanks for looking.
