these are really neat and easy to make. if you dont have any old vinyls, check your local thrift store...you can get a bunch really cheap.
start by preheating your oven to 200. take an empty can and place it on a cookie sheet. set the record on top on the can and put it in the oven. keep an eye on it. once the record starts bending, pull it out. you have maybe 30 seconds to work with it, but dont worry, you can put it back in the oven as many times as you need. when you get it pulled out, cut the record into strips...as big or little as you want. after you get it cut, put the strips back in the oven (on the can or cookie sheet) and leave it there for a minute or two. when you pull it out, take the strip and place it around a bottle or something a similiar size to your wrist. (personally i dont think the record is too hot to touch, but if you need to, use oven mitts. if you can take a little heat, you can use your wrist to mold it. it is a little hot on the wrist, but not unbearable. hold it in place for a minute until it is hard. use a piece of sandpaper or a nail file to shave the ends where you cut. if you dont, you might rish getting scratches when you wear it.
and voila...you made it!

Thank so much for share this! Q. Is difficult to cut the records or I should cut them when they are hot? Thanks again, great idea!

Excellent! I just saw one in a store, and I wondered... what do you use to cut them?
