I've been wanting to try Prima flowers, but I was wondering how they are adhered to the page. Do they already have adhesive, or would I need to get a glue gun too?

Thanks in advance!!

They do not have adhesive, you can you a glue gun or pop dots or glue dots...whatever pretty much.

I recommend Fabri-Tac - they won't come off with that!

Couple of Zots glue dots should work just fine!

be careful with hot glue guns,,,,the glue is not acid free, in case that's important to you

I agree with the other posters that a hot glue gun is not needed. You can use glue dots, fabric glue or tacky glue. Prima flowers are beautiful and I am sure you will love using them.

I use glue dots, zots, Glossy Accents and yes, a hot glue gun...even on *gasp* scrapbook pages. Bad scrapper, BAD!

Fair warning, Sarah--they're addictive! Might as well just get that huge bag that's on clearance right now....I had to have both of them.

I wasn't implying anything of the kind

It's more important to some people, and it's more important on certain LO's is all I meant

Yes! Most anything out there works great with our flowers. For the larger bumpier flowers (like the Queen Anne or Windsor Roses you posted)-a stronger adhesive works better-like Fabri Tac or glue gun.
The smaller single layered flowers work great with anything!
We hope you like using them! Have fun!
