Typically with glue or use them sprinkled onto embossing powder (they'll stick when the embossing powder melts).

Stampendous has a technique they call encrusted jewels that uses their version of Mica Flakes and you can find demos on YouTube:

Mica flake demos in general (includes demos from US Art Quest):

Have fun !!

You can use the mica in shaker cards or adhere it to a project with tombow multi adhesive.

I've always used sticky embossing powder - it's applied to a stamped image or like regular embossing powder, but when heated, it turns to glue. You press the mica flakes into the image while the powder is melted and still tacky, let it cool and dry, then brush off the excess, and heat the powder one more time to set.

I've used red-liner double stick tape too. The Stampendous video above is amazing! Love how she incorporates so many layers and textures.
