Default Attaching covered buttons to fabric flowers

I made a couple of fabric flowers, but what is the best way to attach covered buttons to them? Do I sew the button to a piece of felt and glue it on or what? I would appreciate any help!

I just fill the center of my button with fabric tac (not to much cause you don't want it to overflow). I hold it in place for a few mins. I then turn the flower over and fill up the back hole with a little more fabric tac and then attach a piece of felt to the back.

I hot glue mine. I put a piece of circle felt on the back then I fill in the hole w/ hot glue then just hot glue the button.... I do the same w/ the rhinestones. Works fine.

Do you cut the shank off the button or leave it on?

I glue a regular button in to fill the gap and then glue on my flower, using E6000.

I leave the shank on mine. No need to remove it really since the center of the fabric flower is often thicker than the shank.

I juts hot glue the botton to the center of the flower and then cover the back of the flower with a circle of green gg ribbon after hot glueing the leaves...when I use no leaves the I don`t use green gg ribbon for the back I use a circle of the same fabric of the flower.
But hot glue is the only thing I use for fabric flowers including kansashi LOL glue gun my best friend

I also hot glue mine... like Pat I cover the back of the flower with a circle of fabric cut from the same fabric as the flower. I then put some hot glue down the center of the flower to hold it all in place and then a bit more glue on the back of the button (shank still in place) and then glue the button right down- with the shank into the hole full of glue. It holds great!
