Ensure you cover the entire surface of the box in the paper of your choice. I chose old world maps and scrap book paper that were remaining from my school days

 

Use cello tape/glue to secure the paper onto the box if required and colored tape around the edges to give a neat touch

Lastly, use the cut out letters from magazines to read ‘Recycling’ or ‘Recycle’ in bold and stick that onto the cardboard box
