At my new apartment neither me or any of my roommates have a napkin holder.  I hate the thought of going and buying a plain one and I haven't seen any cute ones at the store.  Any ideas for a neat napkin holder?

Wow, why aren't my roomates clean enough to want a napkin holder?  Mine don't even use napkins! 

  First thought, melt a record into a narrow slit, and put in napkins.
  A bought idea would be to buy a napkin holder at a restaurant store, and you could have one of those retro ones.

Thanks Honorhappy!  I went with the record idea. I had never done any of the record bowls, so I was a little intemidated, but it turned out to be really easy!  I really like it.

How did you get the record to stay so straight on the sides? I tried over and over yesterday and ended up making a bowl because I either couldn't get the center of the record to fold nicely, or the edges got all warped. Did you melt it over a brick or something?

I used a 2x4 piece off wood, but a brick would work.  I poured hot water over it (this is a 2 person job) and as the record got a little bendable I held it in shape until it cooled off.  What  I've found from doing record bowls is that some records  melt and bend different then others, so maybe that is affecting your efforts.  I hope it works out for you b/c I really like mine.

ooooh! right! The hot-water method. I had been using the oven. I'll try that and see how it turns out for me. Thank you!!
