An awesome way to make panels with your kits

Hey there!

Many of you have gotten your Solar Pocket Kits and are raring to start making stuff. I want to share this new method that we worked out for making microsolar panels with a laminator. This is the fastest, easiest way we've found to make panels, and it's well worth checking out, if I do say so myself.

Everything you need is in the kits, except for a desktop laminator that you can get from any office supply store or thrift shop.

Check out the full instructable here, or a 1-minute video below:

As a reminder--if you have questions about making panels or working with the kits, want to share solar ideas ideas show off things you've made with your kits, head on over to the Forum for all things Solar Pocket related.

      @ Wayne, Abbie, I'm responding via private message

      Alex! Same question as Wayne. I'm pretty sure I sent in my address, but haven't gotten my kit. I'm super looking forward to it!

      I got my kit. I love the music in this video but yeah, it might be worth filming again. And it's a little fast for my old brain.

      When should I be concerned that I have not received my "kit"?

      @Sarah Like a chump I used a crappy camera. Sad-o! The photos in the instructable are clear, but the video quality is pretty heinous.

      Awesome! Can you upload a higher quality of the video, I can't make out the text :(
