The small glue sticks slide into the back of the glue gun one at a time. After plugging it in, glue guns can heat up and be ready to use in 2-5 minutes. You can load a new stick before the first is completely melted. The stick is pushed toward the hot tip as pressure is applied to the trigger and the glue exudes out of the metal tip. The amount of pressure put on the trigger determines the flow of the glue.
Use caution when handling a glue gun. The metal tip and freshly melted glue is hot and can burn you. Glue guns come in many sizes and can be found at your local craft store or Wal-Mart. This item is one of a few basic DIY fashion tools that you should have on hand.
