Default baking loops??

Ive searched the forums for the answer to this and I have found the questions asked but none of them answered LOL so if its a secret no one wants to share I completely understand Im just wondering.

If you assemble your loops with hot glue and then your supposed to bake them to make them stiff, how do you keep the hot glue from melting and the loop falling apart? I followed the tut on making loops and using the little cups to shape them and the first time it fell apart @ 225 degrees for 20 minutes. So, the next time I used alligator clips to hold it together while it baked but then the allgator clip got stuck to the glue Im so confused Please help TIA

I use the glue but I also tack it with a needle and thread before I bake.

I haven't baked mine, but if I were you, I would skip the glue and just sew.

I haven't tried the glue method yet but if I do I was thinking about just starching and putting in the cups- I wonder how well that would hold?

I sew my loops and then just starch them and place them upside down on the condiment cups to dry - works great and keeps them perky

Thank you very much. It was just all the tutorials I saw showed to use hot glue and then I saw several people talking about baking them to keep them perky and the two just didnt go well together LOL
