If you are crafting outside of your home, you might not have all the tools you need. This is one of the best easy DIY projects for adhesives. Create portable hot glue sticks to glue crafts from wherever you are. These hot glue sticks can be attached to a keychain or placed in an old lipstick container so that they are easily portable. You don't even need a hot glue gun to use them. Simply set fire to the end of the stick with a lighter or match. It makes gluing as easy as 1-2-3.

Aah my mind loves the idea of making portable craft materials. This was a brilliant idea for when you're maybe instructing a group or class or just when you're traveling and you cannot leave the house without your glue gun. I love the idea of hiding it in your lipstick tube, it lppks easier to handle while you glue your craft.

I've always loved the idea of making portable crafting supplies to be able to keep in my purse and use in any emergency or for repair purposes. I was a bit confused with a few of the instructions on this specific project, but I've always just kind of mounted a regular glue stick into any empty, cleaned out storage tube, such as old candy tubes, or lip stick or even some of the chap stick tubes, and used them when I needed them by heating with the proper methods.
