A Word From the Author:
"The first step of craft cycle is to get you to look at what we dispose of with heightened awareness. You might be surprised by the wealth of creative materials that is within your reach. The common by-products of our consumerism lifestyle such as plastic bags, food packaging, cardboard boxes, worn clothing, plastic bottles, and even bike inner tubes are excellent crafting materials. Only, these highly manufactured items often require more than a simple dot of glue or stitch to assemble them into new creations. I found that with a few simple modifications and handy tips, many of the classic crafting techniques such as cutting, folding, ironing, sewing, knitting and crocheting also work well with most of these nontraditional materials." — Heidi Boyd

Groovy Record Bowl
Lower the top oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Open a window in the room to increase ventilation.
Invert a metal bowl and place it in the center of a cookie sheet. Place it in the oven so that it’s prewarmed. Have a ceramic bowl ready for use on your counter.
Step 2 Clean both sides of a vinyl record with water and dry it with a lint-free towel. Carefully place the record over the inverted bowl, centering the record label over the middle of the bowl. Place them in the oven for just a few minutes. Pull on your oven mitts so you’re ready for the next step.
Keep a close eye on the oven; in minutes, the sides of the album will begin to droop. Immediately snatch the album out of the oven and press it firmly into the ceramic bowl. Quickly ripple the edges and press the folds flat against the sides of the bowl. You don’t have time to hesitate. The record cools almost instantly. Once it’s no longer pliable, pop it out of the bowl and it will hold its new shape.
