I was trying to make a flat, crackly cd in the oven (our microwave is broken) but it didn't work. The CD did get far more bendy than I thought it would so I tried making it into a bowl (the same way you'd make a record bowl). Surprisingly that worked but a bowl seemed boring so I used a bit of clay to make it into a tree.

all we were searching for was someone or something to believe in. i guess that's why we got each other.

I placed the cd on top of an oven safe bowl (that's a bit of a lie, at first I just put the CD on a cookie sheet but that was a really bad idea that ended with me having to scrap it off with a spatula and throw the cookie sheet away). After heating up the CD (at around 450 degrees for about 5 minutes) I pushed the CD into the bowl (while wearing oven mits). It looked bad the first 4 times so I kept reheating it and reshoving it into the bowl into the bowl until I got a decent shape. Then I placed it in the freeze because I'm impatient. Once it cooled off I just took the CD out of the bowl and then it was it's own little bowl.
