Default Attaching flowers

Is there anything special that you have to do to attach flowers to the headbands? I'm assuming that you use e6000. Do you have to prep the flower in anyway? I just got a bunch of headbands and I would like to try the flowers. Thanks!

For sure put it on a clip. Then you can use it as a clip when the baby grows out of the headband. I wrap a small piece of 5/8 to 7/8 matching ribbon around the seam of the headband. It You glue just on the back so that you can change the clip in and out on the front.

I am attaching my first flowers to alligator clips and I read to take the flower apart but I am finding that it looses a bit of it's structure. Is that just the way it goes or are there tricks to puff it up?

I am using a peony and it does have some plastic between the petals but those pieces do not stay glued so I have left them out. Should I keep the plastic pieces in, is there a way to make it work?

Is hot glue best to work with the flowers?

Thank you!!

Take the flower apart and use a brad!!! If you use colored brads, they make great flower centers! Then with hot glue I attach it to a covered clip, and the clip is interchangable with others on the headband!

Brads are often used for scrap booking. They have little prong like things on the back and pretty fronts. Here is a link to oriental trading where they have a lot so you can get the idea of what they look like. HTH Oriental Trading Company
