Ladies and Gents, I present to thee, my Little Glue Skillet!
I bought it at Michael's (a local craft store).
And plop it into the skillet! Turn it on, let it melt and soon you can enjoy the ooey-gooey goodness of hot glue in liquid form.
I use mine when I need to dip things rather than put the glue somewhere specific. Be careful not to dip your fingertips though (it hurts! I know- it happened to me).
I did some online research in case you don't have a Michael's by you. I found hot glue skillets on amazon here. At Michael's I paid $4.79 ($7.99 plus 40% off coupon). I love it and it makes life easier!
PS: While I wish they did, nobody (Michael's, Surebonder, Amazon, etc) paid me at all to write this post. The opinions expressed are honest and mine. Happy Crafting!
