Default How do you attach your button rhinestones?

I got some beautiful rhinestone buttons from Simply Sassy. Super quick shipping, too, by the way! Thank you!!

Anyway, wondering what's the best way to attach these to a flower or rosette, since most of them aren't flat in the back. This is my first time working with these buttons. I'm excited because they are fabulous!!

Suggestions?

Thanks!

Thanks.

Actually, these don't have shanks, but when you look at the back they are kind of a bowl shape, if that makes any sense. So, the center of the button does not sit flush on the flower. I hope that makes sense. LOL If not, I'll post a pic.

i haven't seen ones that weren't flat on the back ... what if you try sanding it down to get a small flat area to make it easier to glue on ...

I don't know exactly which buttons you have...are they solid (no holes or anything to see through)? If so glue something inside of them...felt, fabric, whatever...and then glue it to your flower.

If they have holes you may still be able to do that just use a fabric that matches the flower color.

Some have holes and some don't. That's a great idea, thanks!!!

Are you in the US? She's in the UK right? If so how long did it take for the buttons to get to you?

This is going to sound crazy, but it's true. I placed my order on Saturday the 23rd and got my package today, the 25th. I don't even know how that was possible. So, needless to say I'm thrilled and will definitely order from her again.

I don't know if she's in the US or UK, but I'd imagine she must be in the US since I got my package so quickly.
