Every experience I've ever had with baking anything hot glued (yes, I've tried it) made the hot glue melt. Sometimes it pops apart, sometimes it doesn't.

I always stitch my bows. Hot glue can get yanked apart. I have a 2 year old hair bow-yanking diva daughter. Not taking any chances here!!!!

I do something very, very similar. I stitch mine. I shape them a bit differently, so it looks like a four leaf clover with all of the sides of the loops overlapping (I'll have to try it this way too to see how it looks!). Then I put my loopy layer face up in one of these small glass bowls from the dollar tree. They're three for $1. Then starch and bake the same as korkers. Just another (possibly cheaper and easier to find?) alternative.

Shaping loopy layers makes a huge difference in the stacked boutique.
