Vendor Spotlight: Imaginisce i-bond Cordless Glue Gun and Garden Party

We are so excited and happy to introduce you to our new reporter and Mod Podge Queen, Amy Anderson. Amy has lots of crafty experience and we just know that you are going to love her as much as we do.

I’m the blogger behind Mod Podge Rocks. I was born from creative genes, so I’m carrying on the tradition. I have been knitting for 18 years, sewing for longer and decoupaging for just a few. I do all of these things on a daily basis, or at least as much as I can. In addition to Mod Podge, I love the color blue, dogs, reading, cold weather, funny movies, road rallies, yogurt, garden gnomes, sock monkeys, running, tattoos, being outdoors, buttons, snuggling and apparently blogging. Who knew I would love it this much?


Reported by Amy Anderson

I am more than pleased to review Imaginisce’s i-bond cordless glue gun.  I’m old enough to remember when everything, including phones, had a cord.  Even when the first phone went cordless, it was like talking on a brick.  Life was so inconvenient back then!  It’s really handy that the i-bond is cordless, especially since most of us like to have a glue gun in our crafty arsenal.  I decided the best way to test this tool was on a project, and as you would expect, I did something with Mod Podge.  My scrapbook paper and embellishment line of choice was Imaginisce’s new Garden Party:

It’s such a pretty paper stack, don’t you think?  This line comes with coordinating die cuts, brads, stickers, ribbons and paper flowers in soft shades.  I’m going to walk you through the frame tutorial as I review the product.

Gather These Supplies

Wood frame
Mod Podge Gloss
Imaginisce Garden Party paper and embellishments
Imaginisce i-bond cordless glue gun
FolkArt paint – Graffiti Pink (or coordinating color)
Scissors or craft knife and mat
Paintbrush
Ruler
Pencil or pen

Start with a standard issue wood frame.

 Measure and cut your papers – I went for the patchwork look, so I cut four separate sheets of paper (coordinating).  Imaginisce’s paper comes in 12″ x 12″ sheets and is nice and thick.  If you have issues with Mod Podging wrinkles, you won’t with this paper.

Basecoat your frame with a few coats and allow to dry.

Spread a medium layer of Mod Podge onto the frame and then place your paper down.  The paper went on nicely.  Allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes.

Smooth the paper out with your fingers or brayer.  I have to say, this paper is very vibrant and I like it.  It also didn’t tear when I rolled over it with the brayer.  Yay!  Apply a top coat of Mod Podge and allow to dry.

Time for the glue gun!  This is where I get really excited – this glue gun is SUPER cool.  The i-bond operates on batteries (included) and warms up quickly.  It also has a headlight.  I didn’t understand why at first.  I’d never used a glue gun with a nozzle light before.

I started hot gluing on flower embellishments to test my gun.  I totally understood the headlight after gluing the first flower down.  It truly makes it easier to see where the glue is going.  I LOVE this feature.

I glued ribbon down on the back for a hanger.  The glue came out of the gun smoothly and with little stringing.  I don’t know what causes glue gun stringing, but I didn’t have many problems with the i-bond.  I was able to bead a thin line of glue quite easily.

The gun is lightweight and has an ergonomic grip, so it was easy to maneuver.  It fit in my hand quite nicely and didn’t cramp my wrist.  I think I’m in love.

The finished frame – Mod Podged and hot glued to perfection.  You’ll notice the vibrant colors of the Garden Party line.  It’s truly a gorgeous paper collection.  This might be a great Mother’s Day gift!

I know as crafters that we all have a lot of choices in tools and papers – and sometimes it’s difficult to discern good from poor quality.  From my experience with Imaginisce’s i-bond cordless glue gun and papers, I’m definitely going to be a repeat buyer.

Pros:

  • i-bond glue gun is lightweight and ergonomical
  • Nozzle light makes placement of glue easy
  • Pink color is delightful
  • Papers are bright and colorful and tear-resistant
  • Cute embellishments in a variety of types

Cons:

  • None, except distribution.  I can’t find these in my local big box craft stores but you can buy the
  • I-Bond Cordless Hot Glue Gun from Amazon.com.





What do you love or hate about the glue gun you are currently using?  What would you make with this glue gun?

    I hate that my current glue gun leaks hot glue when I have it on standing up thus dribbling hot glue on whatever surface it’s on, and that the glue is often stringy.

    With this glue gun I’d attach beaded fringe to a lampshade I’ve been itching to spice up.

  2. Liza Henderson February 16, 2011 at 8:13 am #

    I hate how hard it is to squeeze my glue gun. It kills my hand after applying very little glue. I would love the iBond!! I make hair bows for my girls, so I would enjoy it much more without the pain.

    MY current gun drips AND the cord is not nearly long enough. I always have to use an extension cord!

    I will make cards….my favorite craft project. I love a hand-written notes of any kind 🙂 I love to share them with my friends.

  4. sleeplesswonder February 16, 2011 at 8:26 am #

    My current glue gun is ancient. My mom gave me her old one. I hate the thing, it drips glue like crazy, and the cord is so twisted, it keeps tipping over and is so hard to keep up right. I would make paper flowers with the i-bond. Cordless!!!! Loving it.

    I love that it gets hot enough, but I hate that it takes so long to get there AND I have to move to another area of my studio to use it. This would eliminate that problem!

  6. sandyh50 February 16, 2011 at 8:41 am #

    I love the cordless glue gun and the paper! I wish I had both! I would use the glue gun at school for projects that require hot glue!

    my gun leaks!! would luv a new gun.. luv the cute frame, thanks for the lesson!

  9. Margie H February 16, 2011 at 9:00 am #

    I don’t even own one because I was so fustrated with mine…leaky/dribbly glue, cord gets into my projects…yuk!

    The i-bond Cordless Glue Gun sounds like the perfect solution for all that 🙂 I can take it to crafty gatherings without worrying about outlets (or fire codes! LOL!). That light! What a fabulous idea!!

  10. Danielle February 16, 2011 at 9:02 am #

    I hate my big bulky glue gun! I esp hate the cord. I love the fact that this one is pink and cordless!!!! I have so many projects I use this on, my chipboard albums, etc. thank you for the chance

  11. Mari February 16, 2011 at 9:02 am #

    Definitely don’t like the dribbling but mostly would LOVE to glue around the room without having to worry about the cord. Thanks for the chance to upgrade to a great new product!

  12. Kelly Massman February 16, 2011 at 9:10 am #

    My curent glue gun is the old standard-the glue is kind of dribbly… Thanks for a chance to win!

  13. Scrapping4Me February 16, 2011 at 9:15 am #

    I hate the cord. I have two outlets in my craft room and neither are close to my craft table. I have to use an extension cord and I hate that. A cordless glue gun would be amazing to have. I am just getting into altering projects so I am using my glue gun more than ever before. Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. Marijo February 16, 2011 at 9:27 am #

    I hate the cord on my glue gun and its too big. I found a new love in making rosettes and the glue gun works the best when you are trying to get the rosette to stay in a circle and not come apart after a while. I would love to win this and make more and more and more rosettes.
    Thanks.

    I have two glue guns. One is too big, and the other one doesn’t heat the glue very well; the glue comes out of the gun nearly solid and hardly adheres anything. It is also a cordless glue gun, but obviously it doesn’t work nearly as well as this new one!

  16. LesleyfromWI February 16, 2011 at 9:30 am #

    My current glue gun is way too small & glue goes everywhere. Hate it. I have a frame sitting in my craft room for a year now that I would love to do something with.

    I hate how my current glue gun cord is not long enough to my work space. I always have to move my project near an outlet.
    I would love to be able to work with this cordless gun on my many crafts in my scrapbook room.

  19. Wendy February 16, 2011 at 10:09 am #

    My daughters and I are Glue Gun crazies!! We want to use the glue gun everywhere we are (because no matter what we are doing, we are crafting along with it). The problem we run into is ….short electrical cord. This is our dream come true. Thanks you for the great review and welcome to Craft Critique!!

  20. Liz February 16, 2011 at 10:13 am #

    I hate the cord. I hate that there are oval glue sticks and round glue sticks, and I always bring the wrong one home.I’d be using it for altered items, because sometimes tape just doesn’t cut it.

  21. Aissa19 February 16, 2011 at 10:16 am #

    What I hate about my glue gun that I’m currently using is that it really sucks. I paid too much and it leaks so bad.Its haavy and looks bad due to the leak.
    This gun look great and cordless. Love the frame. Paper is so pretty. What I would make with this glue gun is everything. I would us it for almost all my projects. Thaks for the chance to win one.

  22. Anonymous February 16, 2011 at 10:21 am #

    I hate how hard it is to squeeze my glue gun. I would make paper flowers with the i-bond. I love that it is cordless.

  23. Tamara February 16, 2011 at 10:25 am #

    I hate that my current glue gun has a really short cord. I have to move my project to use it.

  24. Kaysi Leiterman February 16, 2011 at 10:26 am #

    I hate the cord on my glue gun-it ALWAYS gets in the way! Also don’t like that it drips glue when not in use and it also falls over all the time. UGH!
    I would use the Imaginisce i-bond cordless glue gun for endless projects–altered frames, handmade flowers, hair bows, school projects, cards and scrapbook layouts. It would be my ‘go-to’ tool.

  25. Suz February 16, 2011 at 10:33 am #

    It sure would be nice to be cord free – even though for the most part I love my Dremmel glue gun.

  26. Jackie February 16, 2011 at 10:51 am #

    My glue gun is old and it drips, and I hate having to plug it in. I’d love to have one of these and I haven’t been able to find one anywhere. I would use it to adhere flowers and other embellishments to my cards and projects.

  27. Elaine A February 16, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    Oh its so nice to have someone review this tool. I’ve been wondering how good it really is. Thank you. What I hate about my glue gun is the cord. I hate that it constantly keeps tipping over because of the cord or gets tangled with my heat gun. As a result I use a really thick tacky glue for my altered art which takes a bit to dry. If I had this gun, I could go back to instant gratification when I added metal elements to my wood boxes, etc.

  28. Dawn February 16, 2011 at 10:59 am #

    I do not like my current glue gun because it’s nozel is clumped with glue and it makes it hard to work with.

  29. chuy February 16, 2011 at 11:00 am #

    I was using my gun last weekend, noticed the glue coming back from where you insert when hot, it stopped the glue from coming out, i had to use my plier to remove it, but it still made it hard to use, I had to use to hands to get the glue out, don’t know why this happened, but well I managed to finish the project. this new gun sounds amazing and it would be perfect for all my crafts, and also for my teen daughter to use, she makes so many projects in HS, she couldn’t use mine, i had to help with the glue and I have pain problems with my wrists, I hope I can win this item, it would make me craft crazy.

  30. Cristina February 16, 2011 at 11:06 am #

    I would love to win this!! Believe it or not, I don’t even own a glue gun (I use glue dots or tacky glue depending on the use)!

  31. Amy February 16, 2011 at 11:18 am #

    I hate the cord! I would love to have the cordless I-bond–why didn’t someone think of this before! And that headlight is really cool. The main thing I use mine for is making wreaths, but maybe if I had an I-bond I would use it for more things!

  32. Ezmina February 16, 2011 at 11:19 am #

    I hate that my current glue gun it corded and many times the cord gets in the way.

    The i-bond would be very handy to use on the child school projects and making hair accessories.

  33. Roz February 16, 2011 at 11:29 am #

    My cord is always in the way, tipping the gun over when I’m not using it. No cord? Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before.

  34. Anita February 16, 2011 at 11:31 am #

    Stunning project! I love the idea of a cordless glue gun.

  35. stampylisa February 16, 2011 at 11:36 am #

    beautiful spring project!! makes me want to fast forward to May even more!! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the opp to win one! I would use it to make flowers to put EVERYWHERE!!!! (i too love garden gnomes so perhaps i’d dress up a gnome for the yard with it!)

  36. Patchi February 16, 2011 at 11:38 am #

    I bought my first glue gun a few months ago but I still haven’t taken it out of the package… Thanks for the inspiration!

  37. Sheryl February 16, 2011 at 11:40 am #

    I hate that my glue gun takes so long to heat up, and that I need and extension cord to plug it in in my work area. A friend just gave me 4 of those frames! I would do this project with a glue gun.

  38. Melissa February 16, 2011 at 12:26 pm #

    I hate having a cord on my current hot glue gun! It always causes the gun to fall down, sometimes getting glue on things I wasn’t planning on gluing! I think I’d use a glue gun more often if I had this one.

  39. Katie_Bolinger February 16, 2011 at 12:41 pm #

    I haven’t used a hot glue gun in several years because I can’t see where the glue is going (I make stuff, shadows mostly) iBond takes care of that. I get tangled it the cord, the cordless iBond would take care of that.
    I would make a lot of gifts. I have ideas for frames like you made and birdhouses but I have put them off because I hate my hot glue gun.

  40. Do Be Do Bead Do February 16, 2011 at 12:50 pm #

    LOVE! I would like this for so many reasons, but really like the headlight feature!

  41. Tona February 16, 2011 at 12:59 pm #

    My current glue gun has a cord that’s always in the way or makes my glue gun fall over. I would love to get a cordless glue cun.

  42. sandra m. February 16, 2011 at 1:09 pm #

    Welcome Amy! I dont have a glue gun, but cordless seems the way to go! I would use it on tons of stuff, mostly making altered projects or kids school projects.

  43. Mad for Paper February 16, 2011 at 1:11 pm #

    Thanks for the review. I have been curious about this glue gun. I had another cordless glue gun that i finally gave away. it took forever to get hot and the rechargeable batteries lasted only minutes. I love the frame you made and love giving them as gifts. I would make lots of frames.

    ack what don’t i hate about my current glue gun? it drips. the cord is too short. it takes forever to heat up, and the trigger is hard! i would love to add fringe to a lampshade, buttons to a picture frame, flowers to a flower pot and so much more….if only i had a fabulous glue gun that worked easily!

  46. Laura February 16, 2011 at 1:32 pm #

    My glue gun dribbles glue everywhere, which I hate! I would use this glue gun for attaching lots and lots of bling. 🙂

  47. starrgazer February 16, 2011 at 1:45 pm #

    The thing I hate most about my current glue gun is the cord. It makes it difficult for the gun to “stand” as intended. It also leaks and does not have a fancy light like this one. I would use a glue gun in countless ways, from craft projects to household repairs!

  48. huntla1 February 16, 2011 at 1:54 pm #

    My glue gun is older than dirt and looks it. i would love to win this pretty, CORDLESS, gem for sure thanks for the opportunity!

  50. Lisa February 16, 2011 at 2:00 pm #

    Ihate that mine leaks and it always smells like it’s burning. I would use the cordless as I work on the props for my daughters shows! I glue gun the heck out of things!

  51. Adorable Adornments February 16, 2011 at 2:04 pm #

    I hate the bulkiness of my glue gun and the short cord. The cord is removable but you have to go plug it back in soon :/

  52. Julie February 16, 2011 at 2:04 pm #

    I hate my cord on my glue gun, I craft in my basement and there is no plugs near where I need them! Phooey!!!! and it leaks! Blahhhhh!

    I would make wedding invites with the new pretty pink one!

  53. mjskrecz February 16, 2011 at 2:06 pm #

    I hate the glue strings it leaves behind…. and its so old…. Love this one and the fact that it is PINK!!! And I absolutely love the Making Memories paper pack!!! If it has flowers …I’m IN!! Thanks for the chance to win!!! I loved the frame youi did, so I proabably would attempt one of those!! Thanks again! Though…. I think there should be more than 1 winner!! LOL!

  54. Kathy February 16, 2011 at 2:07 pm #

    I don’t have a glue gun! I would love to have one. It would be so handy to have.

  55. Wyrdsystyr February 16, 2011 at 2:24 pm #

    I hate that I don’t use it because it is so inconvenient – the cord, no place to lay it down, messy, ect.! A cordless one would be SO much easier to whip out for a quickie glue-job.

  56. Susan February 16, 2011 at 2:25 pm #

    Most of what I dislike about my current glue gun is the fact it’s not portable, heavy leaks. There is never a plug close enough or need extension cord. I’d really like to use this new glue gun at my daughters school for all their crafting projects just the portability alone makes it’s s winner for me. Imagine ask that teachers could do with. Especially when their bulletin boards are up and are in need of repair a cordless glue gun would be a lifeamd timesaver combined!

    I use the glue gun anytime for everything, I dont have to wait that my craft drays ..Its fast… My last one exploded in my hands hahaha I think It was because I used it too much.. I really would like to have a good one that can stand my hands hihih..

    I will make a gift for Easter for all friend of my son (pre-kinder).
    My imagination doesnt have limits just I need good stuff hihihih ..xoxoxox thanks for the opportunity

  62. Beth February 16, 2011 at 4:02 pm #

    What do I hate about my current glue gun: THE CORD!!! What project would I work on with this new glue gun: I would go all over the house fixing little things like fringe that has come loose on my bedskirt, a chair that keeps losing it’s wooden crossbar, a wreath on my front door that keeps loosing sprigs of berries, etc. I could take it everywhere!

  63. rilojane February 16, 2011 at 4:07 pm #

    I own a glue gun, but never use it- It’s impossible to find a safe place for it, especially now that I have a crafty toddler. I love the idea of being able to set this up high and crawling baby or curious toddler can’t pull it down by its cord.

  64. Rebecca February 16, 2011 at 4:15 pm #

    All I have to say is WHY didnt anyone think of this sooner!!?? I love the idea of a cordless glue gun. I have a mini one and I hate how quickly I go through the short glue sticks.

    I wish my glue gun had a better, sturdier base to sit on. I try to put it down fast before the glue hardens and it always falls over. And what would I make with this? The possibilities are endless. The little light is very intriguing.

  68. chuy February 16, 2011 at 5:09 pm #

    Amy I have a question, do you have to paint the front of the frame if you are going to cover it with either paper or fabric? will the mode podge stay on the unpainted frame? I’ve never covered the frames with either fabric or paper, I paint and decoupage glitter & or sequins to my frames. just wondering. thanks

    My current glue gun has a cord, no light and leaves a lot of stringing! And the glue really BLOBS out of it 🙁 I got to try the ibond at CHA and I’m SOLD!!!! I need one 🙂 I have some picture frames that I need to decorate too!!!

  71. Rebekah★All Thingz Related★ February 16, 2011 at 5:20 pm #

    I hate that the cord on my glue gun is heavier than the glue gun itself which causes it to constantly tip over!

    WOW a glue gun with no cord! What a great idea! I would love this as the cord on my glue gun not only gets in the way, it is tooooo short and gets full of glue! I would love to try this one!

  75. MJ February 16, 2011 at 5:43 pm #

    I love that I have my glue gun but I hate that the cord is never long enough to sit where I want and it causes the glue gun to fall over all the time. Cant think of only one project to do with this, I would use it too much 😉

  76. Janette February 16, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

    This sounds like a heavenly addition to my crafting arsenal. I would love to own one, and I love that is uses mini gluesticks!

    I hate how my current glue gun tips over all the time from the cord moving / twisting!! I would use this awesome new one to make hair clips for my daughter 🙂

  79. quiltma February 16, 2011 at 6:11 pm #

    What I have about my current glue gun is that it is so big and bulky.
    I would use this for everything.
    I would use it to make ribbon roses, decorate wooden boxes and picture frames.

  80. Okispice February 16, 2011 at 6:19 pm #

    My glue gun drips all over the place! I’m currently making shadow boxes so I would love this cordless beauty!

  81. Melinda AKA medialady February 16, 2011 at 6:19 pm #

    I don’t have my own personal one but my hubby has one in his work shop. His is very old and hard to squeeze.

  82. Donna February 16, 2011 at 6:27 pm #

    My glue gun is rather old but still works. But it drips and takes a very long time to warm up. And it usually smells funny when it does get warm enough. Love the paper you used on your frame. I love to use flowers on my projects so I’m sure I could use the glue gun for putting the flowers together.

    I would LOVE one of these! I hate that the cord on the (ancient) one I use is always getting in the way, knocking the gun over, a cordless one would be perfect-and much safer for the little ones running around my house!

  84. Robbin February 16, 2011 at 6:36 pm #

    My current glue gun drips glue so I have to be careful when I set it up. I would use this gun for adhering ribbons and bows!!

    This is just so cool, I hate the plug on my glue gun, would love to have one like this.

  86. kathy s February 16, 2011 at 6:42 pm #

    I have two glue guns- one high temp and one low temp – I use them both rarely now because the cord is always getting in the way and the glue dribbles out of the high temp one when I use the stand. Also if I am doing a project that isn’t near a power point it’s virtually impossible to complete without glue spider webs everywhere. A glue gun without a cord would be heaven.

    I cannot get enough glue out of my glue gun–I would love love love to win a new one! Love that this one has a light:) SO FUN! THANKS!!! sbmmhoover at yahoo dot com

  88. Sunny Day February 16, 2011 at 6:59 pm #

    My glue gun is not cordless so it has to be used near an outlet which limits it’s use to some extent. It also dribbles glue out while it it heating up and between applications.

    I have a lamp that needs new embellishments and this would be perfect to use on it.

  89. rush8888 February 16, 2011 at 7:00 pm #

    my current glue gun moves when the cord moves because it is very light. i would attach flowers to my cards with hot glue.

  90. chakeypoo February 16, 2011 at 7:01 pm #

    I have a very old glue gun that dribbles out hot glue. YUK!
    I use my glue gun for everything from crafts to quick house repairs. A new one would make getting to the awkward spots much easier, especially with it being cordless.

  91. Bonnie in SC February 16, 2011 at 7:02 pm #

    I would love to win the cordless glue. Yay, no more accidental burns from knocking over the corded one!

  92. pink and green mama MaryLea February 16, 2011 at 7:06 pm #

    I hate my glue gun so much that I threw it away this past weekend so I’m currently glue-gunless…it never melted the glue enough – it was cooled off before you got anything stuck to it. I always had to use an extension cord or sit on the floor in front of the outlet — ugh!
    My daughter is coveting the “pink” glue gun — VERY Fancy : )
    Fingers crossed.

    I got so caught up with saying what I didn’t like that I didn’t say what I would make with a new glue gun….I am getting a new binding tool for my birthday next week and will be making mini albums for the first time. I see using the i-bond cordless glue gun to attach all the wonderful embelishments like flowers and cardstock letters to my mini albums.

    I also don’t like all the stings that come from using the regular glue gun. They get all over my project and distract from the fun of creating when I have to constantly remove the stings.

  94. The Archiving Angel February 16, 2011 at 7:45 pm #

    Hello there~ great review & gorgeous project. I love the colors of the garden party line of papers.
    I really hate the cord & the drip problem. If I won I would glue everything!
    Thanks for a chance.

  95. roseterry February 16, 2011 at 7:46 pm #

    With the glue gun I’m using now, I love the fact that I can glue just about anything with it!

    But I hate the cord!!! It’s always in the way!

    I love making Christmas wreaths for my extended family as well as making other unusual wreaths during the year, not having the cord in the way will really make it a lot easier as I’m usuing large leafy items as well as glass balls and tine twigs & embelishments.

    We get together as a large family of all the women and do crafts each year. I usually am the one to provide the glu guns because I have several. But this new wireless will be so much easier to share glue guns togehter because it can move around a whole lot easier! YEAH!

  96. Meagan Paullin February 16, 2011 at 8:25 pm #

    I love that my glue gun is so versatile, but I HATE that it takes forever to heat up!!! Would LOVE to win this 🙂

    I love using my glue gun, it’s not a great glue gun, it does dribble and takes awhile to get hot, but it works.
    I would make everything. I have made a pine cone tree, magnets, frames, book crates…

  98. Melody (lacyquilter) February 16, 2011 at 8:34 pm #

    I think I have a glue gun… somewhere. It’s been years since I’ve seen it.

  99. Nana Jo February 16, 2011 at 8:42 pm #

    Haven’t used my glue gun since I got my atg gun -lol. But the old glue gun had a cord and how many cords can we have in our scraproom?

    I hate that the cord on my glue gun always makes it fall over whle it is plugged in and gets lue all over.

  102. Fabulous & Fun February 16, 2011 at 9:01 pm #

    Yeah! I love the thought of a cordless glue gun…..mine is awful the cord isn’t long enough and it doesn’t stand up on its own. Would love to give this one a try! o

  103. Laney February 16, 2011 at 9:06 pm #

    I don’t have a glue gun, but I would love one!

  104. Jenny February 16, 2011 at 9:18 pm #

    Like other people have said, I hate the short cord in my glue gun. This cordless one would be great to keep in my “incase of emergency” box at craft fairs. And because there is not cord I don’t need an outlett (I almost never get a space with electricity). This would also be great at farmers markets.
    Great tool!!!!

  105. Michelle February 16, 2011 at 9:25 pm #

    A glue gun with a head light! How easy can our lives get!!?
    I dislike using my glue gun because there is never a convenient plug available and then it is constantly tipping over.
    I’m so glad help has arrived!

  106. The Miners February 16, 2011 at 9:38 pm #

    Definitely the cord. It limits where your work area. Love that it can go anywhere! Definitely a must have tool!

  107. GreenScrap February 16, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

    I have a little girl so I make lots of bows with the glue gun. I recently changed my glue gun because it took a lot of time heating up but like I said I have a little girl and it makes me nervous the thought of using the glue gun and she pulling the cord and burning herself and that is why I don’t craft during the day.
    TFS!! Take Care!!

  108. Kimberly February 16, 2011 at 10:35 pm #

    No cord, no stinging, what is not to like. Love you project.

  109. Jan Castle February 17, 2011 at 1:01 am #

    My current glue gun gives me stringy glue that seems to get on everything, leaving a less than professional looking project! Don’t appreciate the cord that continually gets in the way. I make cards and would give this gun a try on my cards.

  110. Jess February 17, 2011 at 5:30 am #

    I totally hate the CORD of my current hot glue gun!!!

    😉

    I would redo the kitten’s scratching post because it’s gotten a little worse for wear…

  111. PILAR February 17, 2011 at 6:33 am #

    ¡¡Me encanta la idea de tener la pistola sin cable!!

    Muchas gracias por tu descubrimiento.

  112. Farida Rone February 17, 2011 at 8:36 am #

    I hate that my current glue gun leaks hot glue when I have it on standing up and that is not cordless.

  113. Christen February 17, 2011 at 8:47 am #

    What a cute project!

    I hate that my glue gun cord is so short I can’t use it from where I normally sit. And I hate how half the time it doesn’t squeeze the glue out very well, or I get a huge glob.

  114. StampinCathy February 17, 2011 at 9:03 am #

    Love the frame and lovin this cordless glue gun. I think it would be really handy to be able to take with you and to have at your work station….I mean play station. I would love to try this fun tool.

  115. D.J. February 17, 2011 at 9:15 am #

    I have to exert such a grip on the trigger of my glue gun that it hurts my hands and wrists after a couple of uses. I have RSI and can’t grip too hard for too long.

    I want to make a fabulous wall hanging with found objects and that would be my first use of this glue gun.

  116. Diane S. February 17, 2011 at 10:51 am #

    Love the fact that this is cordless-would love to try it!

  117. Vana63 February 17, 2011 at 12:36 pm #

    Luv the projects you’ve done with this tool! Thanks for a chance to win one 🙂

  118. karenb00 February 17, 2011 at 1:20 pm #

    I hate the cord on my glue gun. It’s always in the way. I’ve always been ‘glue-gun challenged’ but this one look’s great!

  119. fay February 17, 2011 at 2:27 pm #

    i seem to always forget my glue gun is plugged up and i trip over it. it would be nice to have one sitting on my scrapbook table just waiting for me to create projects. fay

  120. Judy Lucas February 17, 2011 at 2:41 pm #

    I hate the glue gun I have because I’m always getting hung up with the cord. I would like to try making the pretty frame that you’ve shown on this post.

  121. T.R February 17, 2011 at 4:10 pm #

    I don’t have a glue gun anymore, didn’t have room for it in the craftroom. This would be the perfect size for me. Thanks for the chance to win!

  122. Kelly Toth February 17, 2011 at 4:12 pm #

    I find mine.

  123. Annette A. February 17, 2011 at 4:20 pm #

    Well the cord is such a trouble maker…I don’t like that it is so stiff and not flexible. Sometime I would pull it and then it would come unplugged and then I have hot/cold glue and a big mess. I love the Imaginisce I-Bond Clordless Glue Gun…what an awesome idea and all I can say is FINALLY. Thanks for the chance to win….I would really enjoy this product.

  124. Iris February 17, 2011 at 5:48 pm #

    WOW! Love the idea of a glue gun with no cord. Your Mod Podge frame is really cute. Iris

  125. Monique February 17, 2011 at 6:25 pm #

    My current glue gun is not only ugly but the darn cord is always kinked, too short or twisted all the time. If I had a cordless glue gun I would be gluing everything and anything I could get my hands on that’s for sure. I love the idea that I can take it anywhere and don’t have to worry about an electrical outlet or a darn cord in the way. And I love the frame, I am so going to have to make some.

  126. Laura {aka scrapaddict} February 18, 2011 at 12:02 am #

    My current gun is REALLY old….it gets hot….even the entire gun…almost need a pot holder to hold it!! Would use this on altered art projects for sure….LOVE making those!

  127. Karla Anderson February 18, 2011 at 2:01 am #

    I hate that the nozzle is to big and the cord always makes the gun fall over.

  128. Chris C February 18, 2011 at 3:06 am #

    I hate that my current glue gun has a cord – it always gets in the way.
    I would make some home decor items for my new baby girl’s room who is due in 4 weeks time.

    Cool tool. thanks for a chance to win one!

  130. RAP February 20, 2011 at 12:19 am #

    I do hat the cord on my current one. I often have to get out an extension cord to use it.

  131. Donette February 20, 2011 at 1:06 am #

    I use an I Bond. I really love it except the batteries die to fast.
    Great tool though!

  132. Annabelle February 21, 2011 at 2:03 pm #

    I hate the waiting for my hot glue gun to get hot and the cord, which is always so darn short.

    I love making 3D projects, like photo frame and boxes, etc.

  133. Donna February 21, 2011 at 2:19 pm #

    Oh my! Where to start? First, GREAT post! I am Mod Podge Rocks fan and followed Amy here. Now, about my current glue gun? It’s over 10 years old, has no stand, takes to long to heat up, and the cord is short. It is a hot mess. lol I use a hot glue gun several times a week and I have a long list of projects but to start, I would use the new glue gun for the Monogram Block I will be making for my bookshelf.

  134. Lady Dorothy February 21, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

    I didn’t really hate my current glue gun (which is as old as the hills) until I read this post and some of the comments. I didn’t know a glue could actually not leak or not have stringy glue. And the cord really is restrictive. Yes, I would really like to win this!

  135. aimee910 February 21, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

    I hate how I am tied down to using my glue gun near a power source, or using an extension cord. I am undergoing a house remodel, and working outlets are hard to find. Having a cordless glue gun would certainly help my crafting endeavors, without having to hunt up a working outlet.

  136. Vivienne February 21, 2011 at 9:30 pm #

    Great review and adorable frame! I hate, well, the cord on my glue gun. It seems that most of my projects require me to dig out the extension cord in order to use the gun on my project.

  137. rickimoo February 22, 2011 at 8:02 am #

    My glue gun leaks also. Lots of wasted glue. Also the stringing of the glue. Spider web strings YUCK. Love to win a new portable glue gun.

  138. Ann March 10, 2011 at 8:22 am #

    It would be wonderful to have a cordless gun, the advantages to that are numerous. Also, I never thought about using it for scrapping projects…. What a great take on it. Thanks!

  139. doverdi March 10, 2011 at 8:31 am #

    My current glue gun is old, leaks glue & leaves long strings of glue. I’d love to have a cordless gun & the I-Bond is on my list of must haves.

  140. Nitasha March 10, 2011 at 9:00 am #

    My current glue gun is not great for crops because I always need to find an outlet. But, if I had this cute lil’ glue gun I could go anywhere with it! I would love to use the i-bond to make some altered art for my bff’s babyshower!

  141. KATMAR CREATIONS March 10, 2011 at 9:27 am #

    I love that my glue gun now heats up quicker than the other one that I had but I hate that it limits me to were I can use it because of the cord. I know if I had a chance to use the i-bond that I would use it all over my house and on anything that I could

  142. Gordon March 10, 2011 at 9:29 am #

    My current glue gun has a plug and keeps me pretty stationary when I’m working:( It is really messy and heavy. I have been eyeing this tool for some time but haven’t been able to buy it yet…Hint, hint:) I would get started on some Christmas ornaments so I actually get some done!!!

  143. KATMAR CREATIONS March 10, 2011 at 9:30 am #

    The glue gun that I have now heats up faster than my previous one, I don’t like that it limits me to were I can use it because of the cord. If I had the chance to use have an i-bond I know I would be using it at every possible place I could think of.

  144. Brett March 10, 2011 at 10:18 am #

    I would love a cordless glue gun! And the cool light is a great feature too! I hate that I have to be chained to the wall when using my current glue gun! And mine makes so many strings!

  145. Liz March 10, 2011 at 11:03 am #

    Your project is way cute gotta love frames…
    I think cordness feels like the
    Jetson cartoon lol… if only the future will be like that.
    Thanks for the review

  146. Donna March 10, 2011 at 11:10 am #

    I use one of those cheap guns that uses more glue than I usually need and it always leaves stringers. I use it for heavy embellishments and 3D projects (tape runners just don’t hold the card stock together very long and little fingers tend to be rough with the projects) I so would love to win an I-bond, thanks for the chance.

  147. Got2BCrafting March 10, 2011 at 2:33 pm #

    Wow.. thanks for the awesome review! You definately have me convinced that I NEED the i-bond. I would LOVE to get rid of my current glue gun… it leaks glue, it comes out in big blobs, it’s stringy, so it gets all over the place, and the cord is so short I am totally limited in how I use it! I would like to use this on a canvas project I am starting that needs to have lots of embellishment attached! Thanks for the chance to win ~ I am definately keeping my fingers crossed! 🙂

    my gkue gun diesn’t stand on the stand it came with, the cord is at the wrong angle and the cord & plug take up 1/2 the space in the box.

    SO this cordless one looks great.

    I use my glue gun for 3D craft projects and adding small items to cards/ handmade books etc.

  149. Jean March 10, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    Sounds like the perfect glue gun!

  150. alwayscharlie March 10, 2011 at 4:57 pm #

    My current glue gun is very old, has a cord (so you can only craft by an outlet) and leaks glue when on it’s stand. there are so many things to use a glue gun on but I would most use it on home dec projects and mini scrap albums.

  151. Julia O Boo July 19, 2011 at 5:32 pm #

    Most things about this glue gun are great the feel of it, the light, etc. But it has one major flaw. The heat that it gives off heats up the batteries and therefore drains then very quickly. One set of batteries dies in the course of one project. Hope Imaginisce can find a way to fix this.
