Default Flower question

So I am really new to making/selling the flowers. I was wondering a few things, if you guys wouldn't mind helping me out.

1. Once you remove the plastic to take apart each layer and then glue it back together?

2. Do you line the alligator clips before attaching the flower to them?

3. Do you always put the flower clips on a display card?

TIA

Whwn I pull my flowers apart I stack the petals, line up the holes and sew them and the centers together. I just prefer sewing them so I don't risk the glue strings, but I think most people glue.

I do line my clips and place them on a card, even if I put them into a gift box, they are on a card.

Thanks for the reply...

I was thinking about sewing, just wasn't sure. I will have to try that. I'm sure it's a lot less time consuming as well.

Is there a cheap place to get cards?

I am getting ready to order cards too - once the design is finished. If you want your cards to have your name & Etc on it - Use VistaPrint - I have gotten all my other business cards there.

I glue mine, pick the string stuff off then use a hair dryer to get all those fine threads of glue off.

Vista Print is where I go too. They offer free products often. I use postcards and then use a razor to cut slits in the card.
