I need a piece of mirror cut to a specific size, and the one provided in this kit (a kit for a small mirrored box) is poor quality. The local craft store didn't seem to carry any bendy mirror material that I can cut to size without special tools. Where can I get something like that? It doesn't need to be heavy duty at all, just something to glue into a wooden frame. The mirror should curve at the top and the craft store does not carry any regular mirrors that are the correct shape.

Thank you everbody! Smiley

Check your local auto store.  They make things like that for rearview mirrors--though I'm not sure if it's plain mirror, or what the quality is.  If you want something nice, you may need to go to a glass shop and have one cut.

if it's small, try looking at locker mirrors. A lot of schools don't allow glass in lockers so the mirrors are the bendy, plastic kind. Some aren't great quality, but I have one that doesn't distort at all and can be cut with regular scissors.
