First, select the record that you would like to use.

Remove the racks until only the bottom one is remaining.

Set oven to 400 degrees F

Take the cookie pan and cover it with the aluminum foil.

Take your record and your ruler and make four 1 1/2" marks where 12,3,6, and 9 will go with the colored pencil.

Make the rest of the marks where 1,2,4,5,7,8,10, and 11 will go. at this point, if you would like to decorate the record, color it with colored pencil. :)

When the oven is ready, set the record on the pan and put it in the oven for about 10 seconds. The record begin to bend and look somewhat floppy; this is when you are supposed to take it out.

Begin to cut the places where you marked for the numbers to be with scissors. It may take a few re-heatings to cut all the marks. Do not try to work with it when its cooled! It will snap.

Reheat the record once all the cuts have been made.

Fold down one edge of where the cuts were made and let it cool. Try to go fast so you dont have to reheat. If you attempt to reheat, the folds youve already made will come undone.

Take the clock kit (i got mine at walmart) and put it together with your record. Glue the numbers from the kit on then you are done! ^.^ yayyyyy! :)
