How??? I'm too afraid of the hot glue gun so I don't use that either.

I leave it on almost all day , but i have a special "work area" that the girls know they do not go into. Anywho once you get over it, you will be fine, oh and by the way, i have been burnt worse by the hot glue gun and my hot pen is 910 degrees!
I don't wanna have an accident!! Oh well, I know it's inevitable, that's why I haven't touched it yet!

Yeah, my lighter burning is getting more & more sloppy looking.

My bits of advice to avoid getting burned (it's worked for me so far ):

1. Secure the stand somewhere at the back of your work area. Mine is glued down at the back of my cutting mat - still convenient to use, but far enough away I won't accidentally hit it, and doesn't bounce around everywhere.

2. Just be mindful of how you handle it - you'll develop 'muscle memory' for the way you use your burner. I always try to keep the hot part away from any skin - seems to work alright.

I was wearing flip flops and was making bows. My daughter bumped the hot glue gun- and it fell of the table- directly on the side of my foot!!! It burned a DEEP hole.

Don't be scared. It might become your BFF one day . I burnt a lot of ribbons at first, but now, I can't imagine crafting without it.
