Default Re: Stupid question about gluing buttons to chiffon flowers

are you the one that doesn't like a needle & thread? cause i usually sew the button on (the 15 mm/smaller buttons work great for shabby flowers/smaller height shank) . . . but if i want it flat on the flower - then i poke a tiny hole thru the flower, put the button shank thru . . . and then cut off a 1/2" piece of an alli clip and put it thru the shank & then glue and also put a small piece of ribbon to cover the alli clip piece/cover the sharp end.

i just get nervous using glue . . . and tried to think of an alternative. kinda like the retail buttons that come on the cards.
