I took your advice and bought a glass cutting board from WalMart. I got the 6"x10" one. I had already planned on getting a piece of glass out of an old frame, but your idea appealed to my OCD senses by having something that had slip resistant corners, smooth edges and small enough not to clutter my work space. I love it!

I use a cookie sheet and place the glass from an old picture frame in it. I am able to fit my hot glue gun on it's holder in there along with my hot fix tool and wood burner without them getting in the way.

you ladies that are using a cheap-o pic glass be careful... the HIGH heat of the burner can cause the glass to break or shatter unexpectedly due to something called coefficient of expansion or thermal shock...

regular glass is not made to withstand the high heat of the burner and if the temp of the glass is low enough it can shatter on contact

point well taken! I have purchased a picture frame to make use of the glass in it for a cutting surface; however, I'll only be using it as long as it takes for me to locate (and save up for) a good heat-safe glass surface/mat...

I use glass over my cutting mat so that I can do all the measurements and cutting/burning on one surface.

I have a glass one I bought from Target. I think it was around $15, but it has a ruler and measurements all over it, allowing me to measure while I cut! It was well worth the money.

I was using picture frame glass, but the heat caused it to crack. Now I use a piece of tempered glass I found at a thrift store- I think it was a shelf. It's 6x24 inches, so its perfect for cutting ribbon. I have paper with my measurements taped to the back, and it works great!

I took a picture frame 8 by 10 and put one of my old grids for cutting material on (8 by 10 as well) placed it within the grame and put a few nails in to hold it in place so I have a cutting board that measures aswell
