Default Rhinestone buttons as centers

When you ladies use the rhinestone buttons for centers of flowers, how do you attach them? Do you clip off the shank in the back that you usually sew through then glue them, or do you actually sew them? Or am I compeletely on the wrong track? TIA

I remove the shank and glue them on. I find that they don't lay flat if they're sewn on with the shank in place.

Depends on the application
With fabric flowers on a band you can use some of them with the smaller shanks by sewing. It secures nicely and won't poke your head too much. With some items if they are secure they can be washed (gently).
With felt flowers I cut the shanks and fb them. fb's good with any clip because it's not going to be washed anyway.
Are you in the buy for these?

I'm not in a buy. I do wholesale, so I have to be able to get my own materials. Do you need some? I haven't decided whereI am going to order from for sure yet, but I will let you know if you are interested. I must be dense, but I don't know what FB is Thank you for your help, by the way
