After trying several different methods of attaching a pin to the magnolias, I decided to dip them in resin. This will stiffen it to the point I can set the pin with resin also, creating a secure attachment. I was debating on making a small back flat disk and setting the flower on top of that or creating a dome cover. Since there are only five actual mothers, they will get the magnolias and the other four females will get a little button with tatting in it. I'm preparing the buttons with resin as well.
