Paper shredders are a staple in offices, shops, and smaller versions are being bought even by homeowners. Why? Because identity theft is rampant, and important and confidential – but outdated – documents all need to be disposed securely.

But do you know that apart from shredding documents, paper shredders also have other alternative uses?

WonderHowTo.Com for instance shared in one of its posts that paper shredders can be used to make pasta. Yes you read it right, pasta. “Normally, office supplies and food don’t mix, but you can use a paper shredder to make fresh pasta in your very own home (…or office). In other words, you don’t have to buy a bulky and expensive piece of equipment to make fresh pasta. If you already have a paper shredder, you can simply feed pasta dough through it for perfect tagliatelle noodle strips that will taste far better than anything you can buy at the store.”

Amazing Works of Art.

MyModernMet.Com meantime featured an artwork that is just so impressive. “Artist Travis Rice’s colorful installations are made up of thousands of strips of shredded paper that mimic the natural world in a whimsical way. Depending on how much imagination you employ, the paper columns and lakes can look like colorful underwater forests, rainbow-tinted jellyfish tentacles or the rippling surface of a Technicolor ocean. Although the finished products look exotic, on his website, Rice reveals that he resorts to a common office appliance to help him craft the installations — a document shredder.”
