Glue Gun Organization/Storage

    Anyone have a clever storage/organization system for a class set of hot glue guns? I'm in a classroom, not a shop.

    Cheers,

    I have an "art cart" that I use.  It carries all the small tools and supplies that are used for costumes, props, class projects.  I got on of those metal storage racks from amazon (one with casters so I can move it from class to the theatre, etc. easily)  I bought some clear storage bins from Target and it's works great.

    I have boxes for box cutters/matte knives and scissor, one for color pencils one for glue sticks and other adhesives, glue guns, rulers, paper, etc.

    This was the best options I could find that didn't take a lot of room.

    Hope it helps!

    I've got a plastic caddie that I suspect is meant for carrying cleaning supplies from room to room at home.  The glue sticks are under the glue guns.  Not terribly elegant, but it works well.
