Default AR flower help...

So i just ordered dozens of CQA-37 ...
I have never ordered from there before, Got the flowers and now I am thinking, how on earth am i going to attach these to clips without the middle falling out? I normally take the flowers apart and use a brad or crystals... how to i take out all the plasticy parts of the flower and still leave the center intact? anyone?

I dont use the center pieces, they do not stay together, the pearl/crystal parts fall off of the stems WAY TOO easy, so I just take them apart, discard the center and use a crystal

So basically, the centers are worthless then. I guess I dont have to order any of the CQA-75's then

I take the finished flower like I pictured it and just glue it on a headband or put it on a clippie and use it with an interchangable band

If you are using a crochet headband then just put it on a clip and clip it on

I noticed that about the pearl center part. It sucks because they look cute with it. I guess I'm going to have to buy rhinestones.

The CQA 75 flowers don't have the plastic pieces. They are ready to be added to a clip with rhinestones & all!! HTH

The cqa75's are hand sewn all the way through to the last (bottom) petals. They are not like the other ones. When I am having to put together layered flowers, I pull the center, save the top one or two petals, and staple through the rest, then I just hot glue the top two to cover the staple on the top, then add a center. On the bottom, the clip will cover the staple. HTH
