3. USE STANDARD BEADS

The other issue is some of the gems are just a little too big to sit there properly, if you can pull the one that keeps popping out, you can replace it with a smaller one since they aren't all the same exact size.

If your beads are not in good shape. Feel free to message your seller to get better beads. Almost sellers support this, especially Pretty Neat Creative do support LIFETIME for this issue.

4. ROLL BY SECTIONS

You’d better use a rolling pin when your project’s all done but for someone’s sections (usually 4" x 4"), they use a little wallpaper seam roller, if they are lifting it pushing them in place, also put something heavy on them when not working on it. 

At Pretty Neat Creative, we use a wooden roller, simple but elegant. View more

5. REMOVE THE AIR BUBBLES

You usually find that the beads are popping because there's a bubble between the canvas and sticky coating from it getting folded on accident, an Exacto knife works well when used carefully, of course, to cut a slice in the sticky layer and flatten it down before putting the gems on.
