Really neat catch all bowls made from records! You could add a bottom to these to hold chips for a neat party decoration. Just make sure that use wipe with a dry towel and do not use any water.
Turn an oven safe bowl upside down in oven. Set record on top. Bake at 200* for 8 minutes. Carefully take out of oven. Begin to shape into a bowl. You may need to put it back into the oven to make it more pliable.
EDIT: Doreen @ Doreen's Creative Space just emailed me with a site talking about the hazardous vapors that comes from heating vinyl. You can find it here. I will call this a "do it at your own risk" project. Now, when I did this, I did notice a slight smell but nothing more than slight. The smell did not leave my kitchen and I didn't even feel it was strong enough to turn on my fan. I have used my oven several times after I made the bowls and there was no smell when I heated my oven up.
I thank Doreen for pointing this out so I can pass it along! Again, use your own judgement when heating vinyl in your oven!
