Nice packaging.  It's one of the most underrated facets of giving some one a mix cd.

Great gifts!  Your packaging makes the mixed CD gift uber-cool Smiley

I would love a tutorial. I think I've got the idea but im not sure what kind of bowl can go in the oven, and if they can be rounded like a bowl instead of wiggly and wavey

oh wow! r u kidding! that's what i gave to my friends for xmas too!!!! i got it off http://www.ohmystars.net/craft/index.htm. they're sooooo fun to make! but there is room for error, just reheat it and then shape it with ur hands. that's what i did because the first couple didn't come out right. it's not like a now or never thing. n e wayz, when they opened up their presents at school, everyone looked at them like, WHAT IS THAT?! and when we told them they'd be like, oh cool!! they're super duperly greatly awesome gifts!!! props on urs, i've only tried the third technique but i'll defenitly try the rest!

Hey everyone! I canceled my internet service and forgot that I had the pics hosted with them. Opps! Thanks to the person who emailed me and pointed out the missing pics to me. Luckily I had them backed up on my computer, and I fixed all the links this morning.


Look!  I'm on the internets!:

oh my gosh i love this project! I made 3 last night and it was fun and my parents responses were just as fun they were funny my mom ignored me she's used to my random projects she just told me not to ruin her bowl so i covered everything in foil and it worked soooo well! My dad just kept asking why like i needed a reason haha Impressed the parents and my super creative friend came over tonight and they even impressed him thats a big deal! Must go to thrift store and buy more records!!!!

So I don't have an oven and didn't want to wait till to go use my mom's, I saw the thread that say it is possible to use gas stove to heat and shape. I just tried out with an useless 45 (LPs are so nice to melt down  Roll Eyes )

It turned nice, but the hole part fell off and now there is a big hole instead of a smaller one.. I tried to shape it as push it in a bowl but I should definetely try the otherwise and use bottom..

1. Do not put it too low, it starts to melt right away and even burns the label
2. be quick, it cools so fast

I will try to reshape it with boiling water and post the results..


1.First boil enough water to cover your bowl,
2.then put the bowl inside of a large bowl (the one like u use to wash dishes) and place the record on top of it.. you will push to record inside of the bowl so dont turn the bowl upside down...
3.when the water boil to hot start to pour it when it starts to melt take a smaller bowl (I use the wooden garlic masher bowl-dont know the english term.. lol) and push the record inside while u continue to pour hot water.. 4.dont push too hard it will be easier when you pour hot water enough...
5.when it get its shape take out the record and let it dry..
6.Remember, if you do not want to harm the label do not use this method, it will gonna wash away...

with hot water method shape is better than the heat above gas method..  Cheesy

good luck.. Wink

I was just wondering if you had some ideas on varnishing the inside of the bowl so that the label wouldn't get all yucky if I wanted to wipe it clean after use.  I've never varnished anything...but I think that is the word I'm looking for.  Any ideas on what I'll need to do this?

Oh and does the record in the oven make the house stinky? Lips sealed

You might want to try some Varathane put out by the Flecto paint company. I don't know if it'll work on the vinal <SP?> of the record but, it'd be worth a try. I know that varathane works on polimer clay and can be used to adhere thing peices to polimer clay to things like wood and cardboard to get a mosiac effect. I think the next time I have some money and the time, I'll hit my local good will and ty to get some old records and try this. I'll try the Varathane to varnish the inside and post my resalts on here

OoOoO...isn't that nifty!

It might be neat to take a small record and turn it into a bowl for dip, and use the sleeve to make a box for the chips!...of course...you would probably have to use a bigger sleeve..


Oh what a nifty idea. Hey, now that we have an idea for what to do with old records, how about what to do with those nifty old cardboard  album covers. I thike Ari is on to somthing and I have another idea, how about using the cardboard cover to emblish a duct tape totebag or messanger bag?
