for those flowers, i take off all the parts, but am careful to leave the flower layers as is. make sure it's all centered, and then i sew it all together (i do four stitches on each "corner" on the outside of the circle/hole in the center.). once i've sewn, then i add rhinestones to the middle. i don't use any of the plastic or the middle accents that they provide.
hope that made sense!
