It's easy to take a tube of glue with you (in case you need it), but it's not the same with a hot glue.
If you want to use a hot glue, you will need a glue gun.
Unless you use a lighter to heat up the glue.
In this Instructable, I demonstrate 2 ways to make a pocket-size portable hot glue.
It's great for emergencies or for times when you have to glue something, but there is nowhere to plug IN a glue gun.
Step 1: Key-chain Glue Stick
You can make a glue stick key-chain.
Drill a hole in the stick and slide it onto the ring.
If you ever need to glue something on the go, just heat up the stick with a lighter.
It's much faster than a glue gun.
Step 2: Glue Stick in the Lipstick's Shell
I used a lipstick's shell for the glue stick.
Open the shell and take out the lipstick holder.
Remove the lipstick from the holder and wash it out.
Heat up a glue stick and insert it into the holder.
Cut the stick shorter and put it all back together.
Now you have a fancy pocket-size hot glue.
