Is your mailbox filled with political fliers? I must get a dozen every day. Never mind the fact that I don't pay attention to them it annoys me to have to throw them away. I mean seriously, these things are printed on nice heavy card stock. There has to be something we can use these for.

I know, we can make something out of them. How about a hot glue gun stand. At least then all this card stock wont go to waste.

Step 1: Print This!

We can make it really easy. Print this picture full page on 8.5X11 paper.

You can download the picture and keep it for future reference too!

Step 2: Glue It

Since we're making a hot glue gun holder, Go get your hot glue gun and plug it in.

Glue the print out to an Add flier the same size.

Craft glue and White glue would work but hey, this is for a hot glue gun, so I'm using hot glue.

Work fast or, start at one end and work your way across the page.

Step 3: Cut It Out

Cut out the shape, don't forget to cut the round hole.

Step 4: Fold It Up!

Fold up the sides and the glue tabs. Then fold up the front and back.

Step 5: Finish It

Glue the tabs to the sides one tab at a time.

Now your political ad flier is more useful than the politician!

Yes, that is a large glue gun! It's plenty stable and even if it falls over the hold glue won't end up on your table!.Go figure a politician helping to prevent a mess instead of cleaning one up.

Ha! I love it! One year, we received SO many political postcards in the mail. I saved them all, and rolled them into paper beads. During a yard sale a few weeks ago, I sold them for a dollar. LOL.
