I CANNOT FIX MY LAPEL PIN ON MY JACKET.
In order to remove the pin tip you have to pull the rounded end, there is a spring system inside. You can wear the flower at the lapel of your jacket, either you have the rounded end visible or you keep it under the lapel.
IS THERE A RISK TO DAMAGE MY JACKET WHEN I WEAR A LAPEL FLOWER?
If you pin carefully the flower on your jacket it will not be damaged. The pin will go through the jacket fabric by moving the threads but they won’t be cut. After wearing your pin, you can quickly rub the fabric for the threads to recover their initial position.
