Book Review: “Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred”

"Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred " is a new book out by David Erik Nelson.  The tag line, "Seriously geeky stuff to make with your kids" sums it up.  This book is full of fun projects with instructions and black and white photos of things that any geek at heart or child would be interested in. Especially boys!  

Some of the projects that might interest paper crafters are the following:

Cheap Mesh Screen Printing – learn how to make your own silk screen using an embroidery hoop

Cardboard Boomerangs – made from a pizza box or other recycled cardboard

Nasa's Finest Paper Airplane – instructions to make this paper tube'airplane', often called a vortex ring

Fedex Kites – make these kites using recycled plastic mailing envelopes

There are many more projects in "Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred " that involve other materials such as metal and wood and even cloth like the project for making a squid out of a sock.  You will also find instructions pertaining to using a soldering iron and other materials.
