The vinyl makes a great bowl, perfect for those retro parties.  The album cover is embellished and made into a note pad.  I love to recycle!

AhaMoment writes: Hi, I actually did this a few months ago and thought it would fit right in with this challenge. I heated the oven to around 250 - 300 degrees and set the vinyl on a large tin can, when it drooped down I pulled it out and quickly formed it. It will start to cool so you may have to put it back in the oven again and again until you get it the way you want. Posted: 6:19 pm on April 26th

Way to go!
