I had a couple of records lying around and decided to try my hand at making bowls.  I more or less followed the instructions left here:  http://www.naughtysecretaryclub.com/recordbox.htm
I say more or less because I actually found it far more helpful to put the record over a large pyrex bowl with another smaller bowl inverted on top of it (weighted with few ramekins on top of that) so that the record melts down into the large bowl, as opposed to over the back of it. 

The bowls came out well.

After I was done I had the sleeves laying around, and as they were so cute and kitchy, I couldn't just throw them out, so I made boxes out of them, following instructions on the same page. 
The tops/boxes put together:

nice, that is a fun cover!  i'm pretty addicted to record bowls and record book ends.  i wrapped all my gifts in record boxes this christmas and pretty sure from now on that will always be my "wrapping" for gifts.  all you have to do is throw on a bow on and you're good to go!  i also just reduced the measurements to make smaller boxes for different gifts.  i skipped the clear tape bit because it took to long and i really didn't find it made much of a difference. 

Here are a couple of boxes I ended up not using.

This is awesome! I have a bunch of record sleeves that I don't know what to do with. This is a great idea!

i do love those boxes. i had made a bunch a while back and they are so easy.
part of the fun is scouring thrift stores for the perfect box
