As you move the flower heads to the sides and ends of the corsage design, you'll begin to cut longer stems that are glued tucked under the first flower heads.
Glue is still applied to the ends, but not as much at the base of the flower head.
Longer stems allow you to place your heads right where you want them to be in the design (keeping the stems on the silicone pad).
I slide the longer stems on the side and under the first three flower heads and then hold in place for a few seconds so the glue can adhere.
The flower heads begin to face out to the sides while the first flowers face directly upwards.
