I generously coat the back of one of the ribbon loops I prepared earlier with floral glue.
I lay it in place directly on top of the leaves. Although I'm using a florist wire to hold it in place (I don't like glue on my fingers) a toothpick or wooden skewer works just as well.
The loops need to frame around the edge, going out no farther than you wish the flower heads to be.
Allow the loops to dry into place while you apply glue to your flowers.
