Well, I know it's been done a million times, but this was my first attempt, and I'm tickled with how well it came out. I needed a quick birthday present for my musician sister-in-law for our family get-together tomorrow night. So, a stop at the local thrift store to nab a few albums, a quick check of a tutorial and the rest is history.
In a fantastic fluke, the bowl melted into a triangular shape with very well formed "ripples." The second photo shows the bowl a bit better. And then, I took the cover and used my Bind-It-All (which I've had since Christmas but finally had a chance to try recently- so much fun!!), and trimmed a bunch of graph paper (I hadn't intended to trim the paper, but I goofed with the BIA and had to trim the covers down a bit).
So, here is the lovely "Hooked on Classics" gift set!
