Default Do you remove the hard plastic that's in between the flowers?

HI Ladies,
Summer is here which gives me time to....craft!
anyways, I've been doing lots of silk flowers glued onto a simple headband.
my Q is, do you remove that plastic thing (whats it called?)
thats in between each layer of petals that gives the flower some height?
or do i keep it in and just glue it to the petals.
Thanks!!

for me it depends on the flower, if I can take them out and the flower will still "stand up" by itself then I take them out but I hate floppy flowers with no shape so if that is the case I usually secure it in again. Good ?!

I do the same thing. Leave it in or take them out depending on the flower and how it looks without them HTH

definitely. it depends on the flower. if i do leave it on, on the back, i trim where it was attached to the stem to about a centimeter, and then i take my glue gun and melt in so it stays in place. HTH

I usually pull the flower apart, cut off the top of the stem so that the center of the flower is flush, and then glue it back on. If I don't, the flower won't lay flat on a clip.
