Keep Calm and Craft On Hot Glue Gun Pad Free SVG File SCAL

I haven't been posting here much, but I've been busy crafting.  I upgraded to the Silhouette Cameo, and nothing is safe from vinyl now.  {evil laugh}  My husband said that he expects the kids and critters to be covered soon too.  Honestly, they won't sit still long enough to transfer the vinyl.  They are safe for now.

Rather than buy a mat just for my glue gun, I made my own!  I used a cutting board from the Dollar Tree.  My store only had the circle, but I hear that some stores also have squares.  It's small, but it's perfect my glue gun.

Since the vinyl goes on the back of the cutting board, the image is reversed.  I also added little circles where the feet are on the cutting board so it is easy to center.  I used indoor vinyl Oracle 631, but Oracle 651 would work just as well.   This would also be cute on the wall or door of a craft room.  Just mirror the image so it reads right and delete the circles if you want to do that.

  1. I really like this. I wish I was crafty! I use to be good at drawing but fell out of love with it. I've been debating on getting back into it someday.

  2. Fun idea! I use an old pie tin for my glue gun--definitely not cute.

  3. I have an old rubber mat I use for my glue gun... This would definitely be a much needed upgrade. Thank you for sharing... Cathy

  4. Cute idea. I just use a plastic food container lid for my glue gun but this would be much better...
