Question How to attach silk flowers to clips?

When you attach silk flowers to clips,

1. Do you take them apart completely and glue back together?

2. Do you leave the green plastic backs on them? (So far I have hot glued the center and petals without the back, but some flowers lose their "cupped" shape).

I hope a few of you Hip Girls can give me some advice. Unfortunately, up here in Michigan, bow ladies have not really hit the scene. I am going by photos on the internet. I really wish I could find someone who lived/worked near me, so I could really see how all these pretties are supposed to be finished.

Thanks. Sally

I take the flowers completely apart and glue them back together with hot glue. I only work with flowers that keep their shape without the plastic parts (i.e. gerbera daisy, dahlias, daisy, etc). Never had a problem with shape changing. I don't like to see any plastic pieces in my flowers.

What kind of clip do you use with the big flowers?
