Step 1: Prep the Parts
A photo says more than a 1000 Words ;).
All measurements are in cm, but can easily be converted to inches using this Google Converter.

However, I hold the Intellectual property of the photos and video in this Article :).
Step 2: Glue the Rear Walls
Start by gluing the rear wall, add a second layer if the base of your gun is wide or high.
This template is made for the Dremel 940 but it should work with any other gun :)
if your gun is shorter than this one, try gluing the rear wall closer to the center.
Step 3: Glue the Side Walls
These side walls will make sure the cardboard base will not warp over time. Add a second layer if needed.
Step 4: Assemble the Glue Stick Box
The glue stick box parts have the following measurements:
front : 8 x 8 cm
Rear : 8 x 12 cm
Sides : 8cm front side x 8cm bottom x 12cm rear side x Top (connect the last side together).
Step 5: Glue the Front Stop
Place your gun on the stand, and eyeball where the nose will sit, then add the front stop to make sure it sits perfectly and will drip inside the stand every time.
Step 6: Done
Add a small Cardboard drip piece, that will collect the glue drips after each work session and you are done.
Congratulations, You just made yourself a practical and cool Glue Gun Stand from Cardboard, that will keep your gun and sticks close to you while working, and make sure no glue will drip on your work table.
