Old Records

I didnt want to go out and buy easter baskets this year. Seems they end up "in the way". I donated a stack of them to a local charity group and decided I was going to make my own.
 What and How.
Then I had an "aha" moment.
I went to the thrift store and bought some old Vinyl record albums. I actually have a lot of albums... and I still have my turn table so "no way am I getting rid of mine!"Get rid of my Elvis Albums..no way...never!

 I wiped the record clean with a paper towel,Then I placed a glass bowl on a cookie sheet and layed the record evenly on top. Put it in the oven and let it melt.
 I placed a larger bowl on top while still warm to shape( did this after I took it out of the oven).

They were a hit : )

 After the goodies are gone you can use the "bowl" for a catch all.

guess what? you gained another follower. yaya... Me. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Oh and about that craft with the vinyl records. I always wanted to try making that. The only concern I have is, When you put it in the oven. Does it give off a strange smell?

Hali, no smell, it is only in the oven for about 5 or 6 minutes on low temp 250. I put the oven fan on and opened a window just to be safe tho.
