I actually bought a silicone mat by the glue guns (made specifically as a glue gun rest) at my local craft store. I think it was made by the same company as my glue gun, but I can't remember. LOVE this thing. Its great for making marabou puffs on!!!! Squirt a blob of glue on the mat and shove the 2 ends of the marabou boa in it! Peels right off!
i love love love my mat as well . . . and i cut off a little piece (1/2" - 1" x 3") & punched a hole in the end and tied a big fat orange ribbon thru it (so i could easily find it) . . . and use this when pressing down with my finger . . . saves a lot of burns!
wow maxine - great idea for a thread . . . i've learned sooo much - thanks!
