I painted an old candy box, and hot glued buttons and my kid's plastic beads to it. I wanted fun, silly, and colorful..and a flat box to make it easy to stick in my backpack, so I can have a sketchbook and pencils with me all the time.

I was wondering..I used a hot glue gun, and I dont have lots of experience with one. The doodads are falling off some. Are all hot glue guns and sticks created equal..is there some type I can get that wont do that? Sorry, if this is the wrong place to ask. But its relevant to this project. Please chastize me freely if it should be moved and tell me where and I will.

I don't know about better hot glue, but you may try E6000 as it will hold almost anything.  Comes in a cool gray metal tube.
Also, I've heard good things about "Crafter's Pick - The Ultimate" glue, but I haven't even had a chance to open the bottle yet.

For hot glue guns the higher the temperature the stronger the hold. They usually say high temp glue gun, and it says on the glue stick pack if it's for high or low. (Watch out I burned some skin off my finger because mine was so hot!)
