Default this might be a stupid and obvious question, but i will ask anyway lol

everytime i have received an order of daisies, they have "laid" nicely.

so, this shipment they are sticking up -- mainly the petals around the rinestone. they are all prickly looking.

what is the best way to get rid of this?

here is a quick pic of what i am talking about

thanks!

Hair dryer on high heat. Some of these flowers get MANGLED in shipping. A little hair dryer love and they are good as new. Gets off the glue strings too.

You can hold it in your hand or lay it on a flat surface. Just point the air in the direction you want it to "fall" or lay down. You might use your fingers to shape as you go, but the material of the flowers will lay down all on its own.

I bought a little handheld steamer to fix things like this. A little steam and shape them the way you want
