Default Remove adhesive from iron-on applique?

I just received some really cute appliques. They're iron-on, though (so have iron-on backing). Is there a way to remove the iron-on backing? If not, what's a good way (secure way) to attach these to lined clips?

TIA!

I think this question was asked awhile ago and I think one of the anwers was to iron it onto felt/fabric and then cut it out. I have used e6000 and it has worked too.

Yeah, I saw that thread. Since it was so old, I was hoping there were some new opinions I've got e6000 - so I should just leave the backing alone and use that to attach it to a clip?

I use an exacto knife and carefully cut thru that iron-on backing. Once you get a little bit of it peeled up, you can use your fingernail and pull it right off. Then you can hot glue it to your clippies.
I also use the Aleene's Platinum Bond Textile Adhesive...grey tube sold in the glue aisle. Very similar to E6000...and works like a dream. I've been told that roughing up the backing with sandpaper is helpful to getting good adhesion. Hope this helps!

If you are very careful, you can burn it off with a lighter, that's what we do at the office. But you must not actually let the flame touch the backing or it will burn through the applique.

Okay I'm not sure if this would work or not but if you iron it onto a scrap piece of fabric, with the iron nice and hot and then separate the applique from the fabric, really quickly...It "should" leave the adhesive on the fabric...Just a thought...Maybe try it out with one of your least fav ones

Now there's an idea I haven't tried...I have some scrap fabric around here - I'll give it a go!

You guys are awesome! Thanks for all of the great suggestions And if you do try the "iron on scrap, peel off quickly" method - please post the results!

Thanks again
