Default Gluing Flowers question

For those of you who take your flowers apart and glue the layers back together:
Do you use anything to hold them together after you've put the glue on? You know so the layers stay put as it dries.

I've been using clothes pins, but they're wood and sometimes they get glued to the center of the flower, which is no big deal because I cover it with a gem or button, but I sometimes have little pieces of wood to pry off when they're dry and ready for the next step.

I also use wood clothes pins to hold my gems firm until the e6000 dries and if I'm not careful some of the petals end up being glued as well. Just wondering if there is anything better and easier to use.

I don't use anything to hold it down. I just press firmly and wiped any extra hot glue away with a finger and make sure it's even before the next flower petal is added. I have to work to take my flowers apart and they're good to go. How do you use E6000 without it eating the gemstones?

What do you mean, eating the gemstones? Is this something that happens over time? I usually use it to attach my gems so I'd love to know if this causes a problem. Is there a better way to adhere gems to flowers?

I just use a little glue. like a dot in 4 places around the hole but not near the hole. same with the stone. I just use a tiny bit of glue and press firmly, then move on. No clips or anything. I do set them to dry on a table but that's about it. My daughter has been wearing hers for 8 months and hasn't had it come apart yet.

I hot glue & have never held mine together afterwards. Some have stayed together for years so far this way.

Anytime I've used E6000 on rhinestones it eats the back off and ruins it. I've only used hot glue.

YES I see that with mine but it's not 100% trashed tho. If you look at a non e6000 rhinestone and a glued rhinestone your will see a funky speckling effect where the glue adheres to the gem. I've noticed it on all three of my flowers that I have done this week. The e6000 doesn't eat off the silver on the back of my gems it just gives it a funky speckled look to it. I hope this makes sense lol.
