i am thinking about purchasing the sunflower moth orchid cutter/veiner set. i have instructions on how to make a moth orchid from five seperate petals but i am not sure how the one tri-petal back piece and two rounded petals of this particulate set get put together? can it be done both wired and unwired? can anyone help me with this? thank you so much!

bump.....I have the same issue and cant figure the best way to do it. I'm thinking of using the mexican hat method for the tri petal cutter and attaching the stem through that. Any advice?

morselsbymark: I am going to try the same mexican hat method for my one piece three petal part. I think it will work.
