Ditto! Except, instead of a lighter, I use the side of the glue gun's hot metal spout thing and run in along the edges...

I use hot glue as well. Have you tried a melting pot from michaels? There like 5-6 bucks. You can use a tooth pick to so that you won't have any bumps. I also use facbric tac. I hope this helps. Good luck!
