Club Scrap Wisteria Blog Hop!

Good Morning Blog Hoppers!

Welcome to the Club Scrap Wisteria Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Karen at the Club Scrap Creates Blog are in the right spot.

I saw a neat wooden hot glue gun stand on Pinterest and suggested to my hubby that it would make a fun DIY project.  He hadn't gotten around to it yet and I thought, what the heck, I can make that using my Club Scrap pizza box.  I gathered my tools and set out to cut the pieces I would need to recreate the project.
some of the materials used in creating my project

In order to create a sturdier structure,  I layered the pieces of pizza box cardboard first and then cut the pieces to size. These layers are glued together with Club Scrap Book Binding Glue. There is a 4 layer base piece that measures 3 x 8 inches. Then the glue gun stand and glue stick holder are both constructed with 2 layers of pizza box cardboard.

I covered all the pieces with the beautiful Wisteria Kit papers.

Supplies used:

Martha Stewart punch
