Default Why can't I get this to look right? HELP!

I am gluing three large petals together to create a flower for an FOE headband. I tried hot glue but on the light pink u can see the glue. Tried E6000 and it does the same. Can anyone recommend a glue that won't show through on these lighter layers???? I would sew but I am attaching a tiny crystal and there would be no way I could cover the "x" of thread.

I so need your all's expertise!

Default Re: Why can't I get this to look right? HELP!

This might not help much, sorry, but what I do when I have really shear petals, is the back two petals, glue normally (usually) and then the top layers that really matter, I ONLY hot glue where the rhinestone will be able to cover the glue that is showing. NOt sure if that makes sense!

So the last two petals, that would normally show the glue thru, ONLY glue a tiny bit (very tiny and spread it) NO larger of a circle than whatever rhinestone size you are going to be glueing on.

It takes me forever to do the tiny 2 " daisys from Hh because of how shear they are and how the glue shows thru, but they sure are adorabel!
