I do the same thing, but sometimes I will glue the plastic little cup back in there with the flower if it isn't noticeable. I have also put a dab of glue here and there down at the base of the petals and cup the flower in my hand to get it to "shape up".
I love the idea of turning your alli clips upside down to attach the flower, great idea!
