What to do with your left over records..
As you may know I had craft army last week and after returning home had a few left over records to use up. I finally got around to making a record book. Although I am not UBER pleased with it.. I'm pretty pleased with it.
This was the record in question:
and this was my dollar fifty book from Michael's
first I measured the dimensions of the book.
Then traced that onto the record. (make sure that when you're drawing the dimensions ON the record they are a little bigger than the book.. you don't want book overlapping the record....right?
Heat the oven to 200C or about 400F
Place that record of yours into the oven
Wait about 5 minutes until it gets flopping.. and pull it out and as quick as possible cut out your desired shape.
This is as far as I got the first time round... and then I placed it back in the oven to "melt" flat.
Get your glue gun hot and ready and glue the book and place the record on. I added a glittery stencil thing I also found at Michael's.
some girl told me she paid 40 bucks for a record book in town!!! Mine.. 3 dollars and f'ty cents.. BOOya baby.
I even had left over bits from this project.. and they were curled kinda like a baseball cap rim.. oh ideas ideas.
