I took my sharp tipped scissors and scrapped lines in the back of it to were the glue would sit in the lines. It stayed on for me. I tried pulling it off and it wouldnt come off, but then again I didnt try like I wanted it to come off either, just made sure it wouldnt just fall off. Its been on their for about 3 months now. HTH!

try heating it with a blow-dryer. Hilarious, but my blow dryer is helpful in so many ways!

I just iron them on to a little felt and cut off the excess but somebody suggested that I melt it off. Worked for them SAve me the hassle of taking out the iron

Now I'm nervous. I made some clippies last night without taking the backing off and gave them away today. I hope they hold up.

I think that was me! I always do it like that. I recently bought pink organza so it would look a little nicer than just white. I haven't used it yet though.
