Recycled Vinyl Albums

Recycle old records into magazine or mail holders.
I love to turn items bound for the trash into something useable. I took a bunch of scratched, thrifted albums and turned them into a fun piece to organize my office desk with.
Trying to get your desk organized for the new year? Turn unusable scratched up records into something useful.
It's surprisingly easy to bend vinyl records. I used full size LPs to make a magazine holder, but you can use smaller ones to make letter holders.
This is a fun, quirky way to get your home and office organized!

    How do you bend them without cracking them?

    Are they stable? Does the magazine make them tip over? I have wanted to try this but was not sure how it would work.
