hot glue un-stick trick

Just a short post today.  Had to share this tip- unsticking stuff glued with the glue gun!

I had used hot glue to make some felt flowers.  Afterwards, i wasn't crazy about my color combos, and tried to peel them apart.  Of course, no go.

So i stuck one in the microwave for about 20 seconds, and apart it came!! Woo-hoo!!

Had another flower that had a pin back already attached. 'Course, you can't put metal in the microwave.  So i busted out my heat gun (the scrap-booking type)  and voila!- it came unstuck too.

Then i remembered about a thousand things that i threw away cause i thought hot glue was permanent....

Pass it on, and have a great day.
