    They are lovely and look so simple to make. I do have a question though. As we all know, even the oldest stuck on hot glue can easily be removed simply by heating it up a little with a blow dryer or other heat source. What prevents this from getting all sticking and losing their shape while packed away in the heat of the summer. The attic can get quite warm.
