Default ?? about CQA37 flowers

These are the flowers with the pearls in the center and crystals on top of the pearl. For those who use them do you take the plastic piece off the back to add a clip? How do you keep the pearl piece attached if you do?

Hi...I just got these...they are sooo pretty! I take them apart but keep the plastic piece in. I do a dollup of glue on the top then add the pearl piece...seems to do the trick!

I take the plastic piece off from the back, then I pull apart all the layers. I leave off the center piece. Then I hot glue each layer the way I like, then add a rhinestone in place of the pearl/diamond center.

When I attach these to an alligator clip, I use the flat side of the clip. I attach the flower with E6000 and use 2 alligator clips to "hold" the flower onto the clip, since sometimes the center does not want to stay down. Hope I didn't confuse you .

Thanks!

One more ?? - when you have petals that are bent, how do you get them to flatten out? I have some from two buys ago that need some help and some from this buy also

I dont use the pearl pieces for anyone but teens as they do fall apart, the crystal thing comes out of the center and the pearls pop off....so for the little ones, I use a flat back crystal

i just started using these flowers and i love them.
i don't use that middle section at all. i take off the plastic from the back, and chuck out the middle pearl section. then i sew all the layers together and then i glue rhinestones in the center. then i add my clip or headband to the back.

Blast them with some steam (from the iron or a clothes steamer) and reshape with your fingers while it is hot. If they are SUPER bent it may take a few tries.

If they are fabric you can go over them with a warm iron,if not lay a washcloth over then and then go over it with a iron.
