Default Have you used/seen these flowers?

I would like to order these next time. Not sure how they would work because of the way the petals are attached. Anyone used them or have them to see how they are put together?

The petals are not stacked like a regular flower so I just wondered if they would still glue or thread easily to make a band or clip.
They look like they're individually stuck in there and like I may have to just use them with the leaves. Not sure.

Cute though; right? Like on a 1/4 inch band?

It is really cute...don't know about how to attach it to a band. I would have to see how the "petals" are on the stem. Sorry I can't be of much help!

Looks like they stem out from the bottom doesn't it?

If they are put together like the hydrangeas, then each petal is on a plastic stem. Those are really cute, if the base stem is flat enough, you might be able to get away with attaching to a skinny headband.

Hi, boutiquesweetheart.
Thank you for your interest in our Aira flower.
We have sent you email regarding your questions.

The petals are stacked and it would be very easy for you to glue or stitch it back together. Hope this helps

For anyone else that was interested, they aren't like the hydrangeas.. The are actually like an ordinary flower, just with a lot of petals on each layer.. The end of the petals are bent to give them that hydrangea type look. Behind all the petals they have one of those plastic things that keep the shape of the flower, but its clear not an ugly yellow like on some others, then the leaves are stuck to the back as the last layer.. I don't really like the look with the 3 leaves, would probably prefer 2 on one side, but they'll be easy enough to change.

I bought 3 colours to try them out and they're super cute.. Would look great on a skinny elastic headband. I haven't actually used them yet, but looks like you'd be able to use them as is, and just put a felt circle on the back..

And thanks to chicish for the super fast post, even all the way over here is Aus

Thanks for the responses!
Quick and elaborate as usual, Chichish! Thank you for the photos and showing me the difference!

I think I want to try both ways now

I like that idea, too. When I considered that I figured one could be cut or they could be folded if they could be taken apart.

I love them. Buying all my fav colors next time!
