Trinket Bowl from a Vinyl Record

Another thrifty present for Christmas is to take some old vinyl albums or records large or small and make them into trinket bowls. Place the vinyl on top of a smaller glass bowl and put in the oven for about 5 minutes till the vinyl starts to droop into the bowl. It's easier if you put a heavy tin of something on top but if you do be sure to open the tin a bit so it doesn't burst under pressure. As the vinyl droops into the glass bowl because the glass bowl is smaller, the vinyl will also flute all round the edges in folds which are very pretty. Then take out the oven and let it cool and you have a nice trinket bowl which can be filled with sweets. It makes a groovy present for a teenager as retro is fashionable and it's also recycling old stuff.

Ohhh, that sounds cute! Trouble is, I don't have old vinyl records anymore. I supposed you could get them at a Salvation Army kind of store. Great idea (for a musician, too)!

Would this work with CDs?
