thread snips are also a great cutting tool for the s/flowers . . . i used to cut them apart & then trim . . . but now i go down one side and up the other side & then cut them apart = much faster! http://www.google.com/products/catal...ed=0CGoQ8wIwAA
i sometimes back them w/the 5 petal flowers offered in the group buys . . . the leopard flowers look great on the back of these . . . kinda like an unexpected touch!
